Salisbury Street, Raleigh, NC 27620 RE: DWR Draft BPDP Comments Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel (DWR # 2021-0206v2) Wayne County, NC Dear Ms. Merritt: Wildlands Engineering, Inc. (Wildlands) has reviewed the Division of Water Resources (DWR) comments dated September 8, 2021 for the Draft Bank Parcel Development Plan (BPDP) for the Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel. Please note that the easement boundary along the furthest eastern portion of the Parcel was brought in by 30 feet to account for the North Carolina Department of Transportation right-of-way. This has resulted in Ditch B no longer beginning within the easement, and therefore a diffuse flow deduction has been applied. Easement acreage and credit totals have been adjusted accordingly. No other changes to the Parcel boundary were made. The DWR comments are listed below in bold, while Wildlands responses are noted in italics lettering. 1. Cover Page — this project is 2021-02-6 Version 2. Add correction. The correction has been made. 2. Table of Contents a. Appendix -Change reference to "Project Credit Table" which will be consistent with the UMBI terms. The correction has been made. b. There are many Appendices. It is preferred that these appendices be labeled (A, B, C, etc) so as to make it easy for the reviewer to find them as they are referenced in the document. Once a label has been added for the appendices, please update all your references in the document from saying "Attachments" or "Appendices" to the individual label you assign to it. The appendices have been labeled and appropriate corrections made. Section 1.0 - Change MBI to UMBI The correction has been made. 4. Section 2.3 — Change 2020 to 2021 The correction has been made Section 4.1- DWR recommends Wildlands commit to performing soil testing to determine how best to prepare the soil for planting and success. Additionally, with this site being used for ag for such a long period of time, it is always recommended that the Sponsor implement disking or ripping to break up compact soils. Why has Wildlands not suggested these activities for parcel preparation? Wildlands Engineering, Inc. • phone 704-332-7754 • fax 704-332-3306 • 1430 S. Mint Street, # 104 • Charlotte, NC 28203 WILDLANDS ENGINEERING Due to scheduling with the landowner, planting, and weather; disking is not always feasible. Wildlonds will perform soil samples in spring of 2022 to determine appropriate parcel preparation. Text regarding soil testing has been added in section 4.1. 6. Section 4.2 a. Commit to ensuring that stem species will be well mixed before planting to ensure diversity of bare roots across the planted area. Wildlonds commits to ensuring planted stems will be well mixed prior to planting to ensure diversity of bore roots. Text has been added to section 4.2 detailing this. It is also highly recommended that Wildlands agree to include pollinator species in their seed. DWR understands this is not a requirement, and that Wildlands does not have to do this. Therefore, adding it into your plan is only a suggestion and completely voluntary. Regionally appropriate pollinator species will be included when seeding areas without existing herbaceous cover. c. If 11 species of trees are shown in the table, DWR expects 11 species to be planted. If anticipating to plant less than 11 species, you need to at least indicate the minimum # of species Wildlands will plant. The standard in rule is 4, but hopefully Wildlands is intending to plant more. Just commit to a minimum so I can hold that accountable in the AsBuilt Report. Wildlonds commits to planting of least 8 of the 11 species listed in Toble 7. Text has been added to section 4.1. d. What is the anticipated spacing of stems? Stems will be spaced of 7'x12' when planted. Text has been added to section 4.2 regarding spacing and subsequent density expected upon planting. e. Add the following: "An appropriate seed mix will also be applied to provide temporary and permanent ground cover for soil stabilization and reduction of sediment loss during rain events in areas without existing herbaceous cover" Indicate the type of seed mix Wildlands will use to meet herbaceous cover. Text has been added to section 4.2. The sentence was slightly altered to include the type of seed mix - o regionally appropriate combination of worm season grosses and wildflowers. 7. Section 5.0 — Wildlands should take measures to ensure that plots are diverse (have 4 species represented as much as possible) and where a species does not represent more than 50% of the plot. All plots need to be representative of the planted diversity and density surrounding the plot and will be evaluated by DWR during the onsite AsBuilt Walkthru to ensure these criteria are met. All DWR comments provided on planting plan & monitoring are being provided under the following Rule reference 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (n)(2-4). Wildlonds will continue to take measures to ensure that plots ore diverse os specified and that no one species will represent more than 50% of the plot. 8. Section 6.2 — add language consistent with the UMBI language that the long term steward will be chosen prior to the year 4 monitoring period. Language has been added that is consistent with the UMBI longuoge regarding the long-term steward being chosen prior to Monitoring Year 4. 9. Section 7.0 a. we are trying to move away from using "Mitigation" in this section if the site is also a nutrient offset site. This is a new change. Wildlands Engineering, Inc. • phone 704-332-7754 • fax 704-332-3306 • 1430 S. Mint Street, # 104 • Charlotte, NC 28203 WILDLANDS E N G I N E E R I N G Okay. The related change from "Mitigation Potential" to 'Project Credit Potential" has been made. b. , however, Wildlands will only seek Riparian Buffer Credit from areas within Top of Bank-100'. Nutrient Offset Credits will be generated from 101'-200' from top of bank along UT1, but will not be convertible to Riparian Buffer Credits per the site's UMBI The suggested text has been added to section 7.0. c. All requests for credit conversions and transfers must be made in writing with written approval received by DWR prior to adding or removing credits from the project's credit ledgers. Text has been added to section 7.0 noting this requirement. d. One ledger will account for Riparian Buffer Credits and one ledger will account for Nitrogen Nutrient Offset Credits. The sentence at the end of section 7.0 has been altered to specify that one ledger will be for Riparian Buffer Credits, and another will be for Nitrogen Offset Credits. 10. Table 8: Black Dirt Project Mitigation Credits a. Add the total area for UT1 The total area for UT1 has been added to Table 8. b. Its ok if there is a number here after you add the Total Area amount Okay. 11. Figure 7 — Change Buffer Restoration to "riparian restoration for Buffer Credits" Change Nutrient Offset to "riparian restoration for Nutrient offset Credits" The changes have been made.

Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel Neuse River Basin Wildlands Holdings III 1.0 Project Introduction The Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel ("Parcel") is proposed under the terms and conditions of the proposed Rosewood/Black Dirt Nutrient Offset and Buffer Umbrella Mitigation Banking Instrument ("UMBI"), made and entered into by Wildlands Holdings III, LLC acting as Bank Sponsor ("Sponsor") and the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality ("NCDE(X") Division of Water Resources ("NCDWR"). The Parcel shall be planned and designed according to the MBI, 15A NCAC 0213.0703, and the Consolidated Buffer Mitigation Rule 15A NCAC 02B .0295 which became effective November 1, 2015. The project is in Wayne County approximately 7 miles west of the City of Goldsboro (Figure 1). Directions are included on Figure 1. The Parcel creates a protected riparian area from top of bank out to 200 feet along one unnamed tributary and two ditches. The primary purpose of the project is to provide riparian buffer mitigation credits and nutrient offset credits to compensate for unavoidable impacts in the Neuse River Basin 03020201 Hydrologic Unit Code ("HUC") outside the Falls Lake Watershed (Figure 2). The Parcel is located within the Neuse River Basin HUC 03020201170060 and NCDWR Subbasin 03- 04-12 in Wayne County. 1.1 Parcel Description The project stream flows approximately half a mile to its confluence with the Neuse River, which is classified as a Water Supply Watershed (WSW) for the City of Goldsboro and Nutrient Sensitive Waters (NSW) by NCDWR. The proposed project supports specific goals identified in the 2018 Neuse River Basin Restoration Priorities Plan (RBRP) by promoting "nutrient and sediment reduction in agricultural areas by restoring and preserving wetlands, streams and riparian buffers". This riparian mitigation project will reduce sediment and nutrient loading, supply and improve terrestrial and instream habitats, and improve stream and bank stability. The area surrounding the stream and ditches proposed for mitigation is currently agricultural fields, typically used to grow corn, soybeans, wheat, and cotton. See the Appendix for January 2021 site photos. Restoring the riparian area up to 200 feet from the project stream and ditches will reduce nutrient and sediment inputs in the tributary that flows to the Neuse River. The restored floodplain areas will filter sediment during high rainfall events and provide cover and food for wildlife throughout the Parcel. 2.0 Mitigation Project Summary 2.1 Project Goals The major goals of the proposed nutrient offset and buffer mitigation project are to provide ecological and water quality enhancements to the Neuse River Basin by restoring the riparian area to create a functional riparian corridor. Specific enhancements to water quality and ecological processes are outlined below in Table 1. W Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 1 October 2021 Table 1: Ecological and Water Quality Goals Goals Objectives Nutrient input will be decreased by filtering runoff from the agricultural fields Decrease nutrient levels. through restored native vegetation. The off -site nutrient input will also be absorbed on -site by filtering flood flows through restored floodplain areas, where flood flows can disperse through native vegetation. Decrease sediment input. Sediment from off -site sources will be captured by deposition on restored floodplain areas where native vegetation will slow overland flow velocities. Fecal coliform input will be reduced by restricting the application of animal Reduce fecal coliform waste within the conservation easement.

Permanently protect the project Parcel from A conservation easement will be recorded on the Parcel. harmful uses. 2.2 Existing Parcel Conditions The proposed nutrient offset and buffer mitigation project includes approximately 28.3 acres of open row crop fields along one unnamed tributary (UT1) and two ditches (Ditches A and B). Currently the fields are planted with cotton adjacent to the project stream and ditches. The Parcel easement boundary will extend from top of bank to 200 feet. (Figure 3). UT1 starts offsite and flows northwest, with an established riparian buffer outside of the proposed easement on the left side of the stream. Approximately one third of the way upstream of the confluence of UT1 and Ditch A, the stream emerges from the forested hardwood buffer into agricultural fields. The right bank consists of agricultural fields the entire length of UT1. Ditch A starts within the Site flowing parallel with UT1, then runs southwest to flow into UT1. Ditch B also starts within the site and flows west until its confluence with UT1. Both ditches are bordered by agricultural fields on each side. In general, this area has maintained its rural, farming characteristic over the last 60 years with only minor changes in land cover (see Appendix B). This consistency in land use within the project watershed indicates that watershed processes affecting hydrology, sediment supply, and nutrient and pollutant delivery have not varied widely over time. With a lack of developmental pressure, watershed processes W Black Dirt Litigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 2 October 2021 and stressors from outside the project limits are likely to remain consistent throughout the implementation, monitoring, and closeout of this project.

NCDWR also performed an onsite visit of the project area to determine viability for buffer mitigation and nutrient offset on March 25, 2021 and issued a site viability letter on April 19, 2021. One of the three features assessed were deemed viable by NCDWR to generate buffer mitigation. There have been no changes to land use in the project area since NCDWR's 2021 site visit. A copy of both the "On -Site Stream Origin Determination for Applicability to Neuse Riparian Buffer Rules" and the "Site Viability for Buffer Mitigation & Nutrient Offset" letters from NCDWR are included in Appendix C. A summary is included in Table 3. Table 3: Project Features Feature Name Classification Buffer Credit Viable Nutrient Offset Viable UT1 Stream Yes Yes (non -forested fields only) Ditch A Ditch No Yes Ditch B Ditch No Yes 2.4 Watershed Characterization The Parcel is located within the HUC 03020201170060. The two ditches on site drain to the unnamed tributary which flows into the Neuse River. The Neuse River is classified as WSW -IV and NSW by NCDWR. WSW -IV waters are sources of water supply for drinking, culinary, or food processing. The NSW designation applies to surface waters that are experiencing excessive growths of microscopic or macroscopic vegetation. The topography of the Parcel, as indicated on the Southwest Goldsboro USGS 7.5-minute topographic quadrangle, shows low sloped areas throughout the project (Figure 4). Drainage areas for the project W Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 3 October 2021 reaches (Figure 5) were delineated using 2-foot contour intervals derived from the North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program's 2017 Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data. Land uses draining to the project reaches are primarily a mix of active crop fields, woodlands, and shrubland. The watershed areas and current land use are summarized in Table 4, below. Table 4: Drainage Areas and Associated Land Use Reach Name Mitigation Area Watershed Area Land Use (acres) (acres) 51% forest, 11% shrubland, 35% agriculture, UT1 9 269 3% urban development Ditch A 6 28 100% agriculture 53%agriculture, 15% woody wetlands, 15% Ditch B 12 22 mixed forest, 10% shrub/scrub, 7% urban development 2.5 Soils The proposed Parcel is mapped by the Wayne County Soil Survey.

Cattail (Typha spp.) is growing within ditches and a dense cover of rivercane (Arundinaria gigantea) is present along project features, extending up to approximately 15 feet from banks in some areas. Additionally, woody saplings are infrequently dispersed along UT1 and Ditch A, which include American holly (Ilex opaca), oak species (Quercusspp.), and common sweet leaf (Symplocos tinctoria). A small number of blackberry (Rubus spp.) were noted along the project features, along with a small number of rush (Juncus spp.) and green briar (Smilax spp.). The mature forest located on the left bank outside of the Easement contains a mix of red maple (Acer rubrum), sweetgum (Liquidambarstyraciflua), black cherry (Prunus serotina), water oak (Quercus nigra), sweetbay (Magnolia virginiana), and swamp chestnut oak (Quercus michauxii). W Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 4 October 2021 2.7 Threatened and Endangered Species The NC Natural Heritage Program (NHP) database and the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Information for Planning and Consultation database (IPaC) were searched for federally listed threatened and endangered plant and animal species in Wayne County, NC. Two listed endangered species and three species proposed for listing as endangered or threatened were identified. Respectively, they are the Red -Cockaded Woodpecker (Picoides borealis), Tar River Spinymussel (Elliptio steinstansana), Neuse River Waterdog (Necturus lewisi), Carolina madtom (Notorus furiousus), and Atlantic Pigtoe (Fusconaia masoni). Wildlands performed a pedestrian survey of the project parcel on January 6, 2021. It was determined that there is no suitable habitat for any of the listed species; therefore, the project will have "no effect" on the federally listed species. The USFWS Self -Certification Letter packet and the USFWS response letter agreeing with the determinations are included in Appendix D. 2.8 Cultural Resources There are no existing structures in the project area. The Parcel is not located near any sites listed on the National Register with the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). SHPO was contacted with request for review and comment on January 27, 2021. SHPO responded on March 5, 2021 stating they are aware of no historic resources which would be affected by the project. The SHPO response and request are included in Appendix D. 2.9 FEMA Floodplain Compliance No grading activities are proposed in the floodplain, so a floodplain development permit will not be required. No hydraulic modeling is proposed for this project. 2.10 Parcel Location, Parcel Constraints, and Access The Parcel is accessible via Steven's Mill Road. There are no easement breaks, internal crossings or other site constraints within the proposed easement. There is one privately -owned airport within five miles of the project site, Scottbrook Farm Airport (Figure 1). The airport consists of two grassed runways with three aircrafts based on the field. 2.11 Other Environmental Conditions An EDR Radius Map Report with Geocheck was ordered for the Parcel through Environmental Data Resources, Inc. on August 18, 2020. Neither the target property nor the adjacent properties were listed in any of the Federal, State, or Tribal environmental databases searched by EDR. There were no known or potentially hazardous waste sites identified within or immediately adjacent to the project area. The Executive Summary of the EDR report is included in Appendix D. 3.0 Site Protection Instrument The land required for planting, management, and stewardship of the Parcel includes portions of the parcels listed in Table 6. The Parcel will remain in private ownership, protected in its entirety by an approved NCDWR long term stewardship, and will be managed under the terms detailed in an approved NCDWR conservation easement. The conservation easement area will not overlap with NC Department of Transportation right of way.

Feige 2568-86-0795 4.0 Mitigation Work Plan The project will restore agriculturally impacted land along UT1, Ditch A, and Ditch B on the Parcel to a protected riparian corridor, improving the ecological function of the area. Figure 7 illustrates the conceptual design for the Parcel. Figure 8 further depicts the riparian buffer zones for the Parcel. 4.1 Parcel Preparation The land use within 200 feet from top of bank of the project features has been maintained and cleared for row crop cultivation. Areas slated for restoration will require little to no site preparation because the land has been maintained in agriculture; therefore, soil disturbance will be minimal across the Parcel. Two isolated areas along UT1 will have minor bank stabilization work completed. The two areas identified are at the confluence of the non -project stream and UT1 and the confluence of Ditch A and UT1. Minor bank stabilization will involve installing erosion control matting, planting live stakes as necessary and seeding with a mixture of native grasses and forbs. Soil samples will also be collected and analyzed prior to planting to determine if soil preparation is necessary to support herbaceous and planted stem success. Additionally, during the spring of 2022, the condition of herbaceous cover prior to the establishment of row crops will be visually assessed across the Parcel. If herbaceous vegetation does not appear to grow naturally, Wildlands will note the areas of deficiency and seed them the following spring of 2023. 4.2 Riparian Area Restoration Activities Riparian area restoration will involve planting appropriate native tree species along the riparian corridor. Vegetation management and herbicide applications may be needed over the first few years of tree establishment in the riparian restoration areas to prevent undesirable species from out -competing planted native vegetation. Tree species planted across the riparian areas of the Parcel will include a mixture of at least 8 species listed in Table 7 below. Table 7: Selected Tree Species Species Common Name Density Forest Strata Platanus occidentalis American Sycamore 15% Canopy Betula nigra River Birch 15% Canopy Diospyros virginiana Persimmon 10% Canopy Prunus serotina Black Cherry 5% Canopy W Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 6 October 2021 Species Common Name Density Forest Strata Quercus pagoda Cherrybark Oak 10% Canopy Populus deltoides Eastern Cottonwood 10% Canopy Quercus phellos Willow Oak 10% Canopy Ulmus americans American Elm 5% Canopy Acer negundo Boxelder 10% Canopy Quercus nigra Water Oak 5% Canopy Magnolia virginiana Sweetbay 5% Sub -canopy Trees will be spaced at 7'X12' upon planting, which is equivalent to a stem density of 521 stems per acre and is sufficient to meet the performance standards outlined in the Rule 15A NCAC 02B .0295 of 260 planted trees per acre at the end of five years. At least 8 of the 11 species listed in Table 7 will be planted, and stems will be well mixed prior to planting to ensure diversity of bare root species across the Parcel. Due to the nature of random mixing, some stems of the same species might be planted together in some areas. No one tree species will be greater than 50% of the established stems. A regionally appropriate seed mix of warm season grasses and wildflowers will also be applied to provide temporary and permanent ground cover for soil stabilization and reduction of sediment loss during rain events in areas without existing herbaceous cover. The proposed planting area includes both the areas identified as buffer restoration and nutrient offset credits on Figure 7. Planting is scheduled for December 2022. 4.3 NCDWR As -Built Evaluation Within 30 calendar days after completing the establishment of the buffer mitigation and nutrient offset areas, the Sponsor will submit written notification to NCDWR documenting that all buffer mitigation and nutrient offset activities have been completed. Failure to submit written notification within 30 days may result in a modified credit release schedule or a delay in the issuance of credit releases. 5.0 Monitoring and Maintenance Plan 5.1 Monitoring Protocol Permanent vegetation monitoring plots will be installed and evaluated within the riparian restoration areas to measure the survival of the planted trees. The plots will be randomly placed throughout the planted riparian areas. A total of 22 plots will be established within restoration areas and will be randomly placed such that the plots are representative of the buffer mitigation and nutrient offset credit areas (Figure 9). The size of individual quadrants will be 100 square meters. Vegetation assessments will be conducted and follow the Carolina Vegetation Survey (CVS) Level 2 Protocol for Recording Vegetation (2008). A reference photo will be taken from the southwestern corner of each of the 22 plots. Overview photos will be taken each monitoring year and provided in the annual reports. All planted stems will be marked with flagging tape and recorded. The first annual monitoring activities will commence at the end of the first growing season, at least five months after planting has been completed and no earlier than the fall season. Species composition, height, and survival rates will be evaluated on an annual basis by plot. The total number of volunteer W Black Dirt Litigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 7 October 2021 woody stems will also be documented and reported. The measure of vegetative success for the Parcel will be the survival of at least four native hardwood tree species, where no one species is greater than 50% of the established planted stems, and an established density of at least 260 planted trees per acre at the end of the fifth year of monitoring. Appropriate and desirable native volunteer species may be included in the Parcel's density to meet the performance standards with written NCDWR approval. The Sponsor shall submit the annual monitoring report to NCDWR by December 315Y of each year for five consecutive years and will follow the terms and conditions of the MBI. 5.2 Parcel Maintenance If the Parcel or a specific component of the Parcel fails to achieve the success criteria outlined in Section 5.1, adaptive measures will be developed and/or appropriate remedial actions will be implemented. Maintenance will be performed to correct any identified problems on the Parcel that have a high likelihood of affecting project success. Such items include, but are not limited to, fire, flooding, drought, or insects that cause excess tree mortality. Any actions implemented will be designed to achieve the success criteria and will include a work schedule and updated monitoring criteria. A rigorous herbicide schedule may need to be implemented in the first few years of tree establishment in the restoration areas to prevent establishment of invasive species that may out -compete the planted native vegetation. The only herbicides used on the Parcel will be aquatic approved herbicides that will be applied in accordance with North Carolina Department of Agriculture rules and regulations. The easement boundary will be checked annually as part of monitoring activities. Easement boundary conditions as well as any maintenance performed will be reported in the annual monitoring reports to NCDWR. If mowing is deemed necessary by the Sponsor during the monitoring period, the Sponsor must receive approval from NCDWR prior to conducting any mowing activities within Zone 1 and Zone 2 of the Neuse buffers to ensure that no buffer violations have occurred. 5.3 Easement Boundaries Easement boundaries will be identified in the field to ensure clear distinction between the Parcel and adjacent properties. Boundaries may be identified by marker, post, tree -blazing, or other means as allowed by site conditions and/or conservation easement prior to the NCDWR onsite As -Built evaluation for Task 2 credit release. Boundary markers that have been disturbed, damaged, or destroyed will be repaired and/or replaced on an as needed basis. Contact information for the conservation easement holder will be included on easement markers. 6.0 Financial Assurance and Long -Term Management 6.1 Financial Assurances Following approval of the Black Dirt Bank Parcel Development Package, the Sponsor shall provide a Performance Bond from a surety that is rated no less than an "A-" as rated by A.M. Best. The Performance Bond amount shall be 100% of the estimated cost for implementation of the project as described in the Bank Parcel Development Package (BPDP), but not less than $150,000.00. In lieu of posting the performance bond, the Sponsor may elect to construct the project prior to the first credit release. In that case no performance bond will be necessary. After completion of the restoration/construction, a separate Performance/Maintenance Bond will be secured for 100% of the estimated cost to implement the monitoring and maintenance plan but not less than $100,000.00. The Performance/Maintenance Bond shall apply at the inception of the monitoring W Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 8 October 2021 period for a term of one year and be extended annually for a minimum of five years. Upon NCDWR approval, this may be lowered each year based on the adjusted cost to complete the monitoring. Performance bonds for monitoring shall be renewed at least annually to cover the next years monitoring period, with confirmation of renewal provided to NCDWR with each annual monitoring report when applicable. NCDWR reserves the right to alter the credit release schedule if monitoring reports are submitted without proof of bond renewals when applicable. 6.2 Long-term Management The Parcel will remain in private ownership, protected in its entirety by an approved NCDWR long term stewardship, and will be managed under the terms detailed in an approved NCDWR conservation easement. The long-term manager will be chosen prior to the submittal of the Year 4 Monitoring report and will be responsible for periodic inspection of the Parcel to ensure that the restrictions documented in the recorded easement are upheld in perpetuity. No remaining credits will be released for Monitoring Year 4 until the conservation easement has been assigned to an approved land trust or stewardship. 7.0 Project Credit Potential Of the 28.3 acres protected under the conservation easement, 26.6 acres are proposed for riparian restoration. Of that 26.6 acres of restoration, 5.11 acres is proposed for buffer mitigation credit and 21.50 acres are proposed for nutrient offset credit. The mitigation credit calculations were derived from Wildlands' conceptual design for maximum ecological uplift. The management objectives, mitigation type, and proposed amount of buffer mitigation are presented in Tables 8 and 9 below. The riparian restoration areas along UT1 are viable for either riparian buffer credits or nutrient offset credits, however, Riparian Buffer Credit will only be sought from areas within Top of Bank —100'. Nutrient Offset Credits will be generated from 101'-200' from the Top of Bank along UT1 but will not be convertible to Riparian Buffer Credits per the UMBI. All requests for credit conversions and transfers will be made in writing, with written approval received by DWR prior to adding or removing credits from the project's credit ledgers. There will be two credit ledgers for the project: Riparian Buffer Credits and Nitrogen Offset Credits.

The site visit was to determine the potential for riparian buffer mitigation and nutrient offset within a proposed conservation easement boundary, which is more accurately depicted in the attached map labeled "Figure 1-Site Map" (Figure 1) prepared by Wildlands. The proposed easement boundary in Figure 1, includes all riparian areas intended to be proposed as part of a private mitigation bank. On March 25, 2021, Ms. Merritt performed a site assessment of the subject site. Staff with Wildlands were also present. Ms. Merritt's evaluation of the features onsite and their associated mitigation determination for the riparian areas are provided in the table below. This evaluation was made from Top of Bank (TOB) and landward 200' from each feature for buffer mitigation pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (effective November 1, 2015) and for nutrient offset credits pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0703.

Site cannot be a Preservation Only site to comply with this rule. 'NC Division of Water Resources - Methodology and Calculations for determining Nutrient Reductions associated with Riparian Buffer Establishment 'Determinations made for this Site are determined based on the proposal provided in maps and figures submitted with the request. s All features proposed for buffer mitigation or nutrient offset, must have a planted conservation easement established that includes the tops of channel banks when being measured perpendicular and landward from the banks, even if no credit is viable within that riparian area. 6The area of the mitigation site on ephemeral channels shall comprise no more than 25 percent (25%) of the total area of buffer mitigation per 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (o)(7). Determinations provided in the table above were based on the proposed conservation easement boundaries depicted in Figure 1 for the site. The map representing the proposal for the site is attached to this letter and is initialed by Ms. Merritt on April 19, 2021. Substantial changes to the proposed easement boundaries could affect the site's potential to generate buffer mitigation and nutrient offset credits. This letter does not constitute an approval of this Site to generate buffer and nutrient offset credits. Pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0295, a mitigation proposal and a mitigation plan shall be submitted to DWR for written approval prior to conducting any mitigation activities in riparian areas and/or surface waters for buffer mitigation credit. Pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0703, a proposal regarding a proposed nutrient load -reducing measure for nutrient offset credit shall be submitted to DWR for approval prior to any mitigation activities in riparian areas and/or surface waters. All vegetative plantings, performance criteria and other mitigation requirements for riparian restoration, enhancement and preservation must follow the requirements in 15A NCAC 02B .0295 to be eligible for buffer and/or nutrient offset mitigation credits. For any areas depicted as not being viable for nutrient offset credit above, one could propose a different measure, along with supporting calculations and sufficient detail to support estimates of load reduction, for review by the DWR to determine viability for nutrient offset in accordance with 15A NCAC 02B .0703.

The species list fulfills the requirements of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) under section 7(c) of the Endangered Species Act (Act) of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). New information based on updated surveys, changes in the abundance and distribution of species, changed habitat conditions, or other factors could change this list. Please feel free to contact us if you need more current information or assistance regarding the potential impacts to federally proposed, listed, and candidate species and federally designated and proposed critical habitat. Please note that under 50 CFR 402.12(e) of the regulations implementing section 7 of the Act, the accuracy of this species list should be verified after 90 days. This verification can be completed formally or informally as desired. The Service recommends that verification be completed by visiting the ECOS-IPaC website at regular intervals during project planning and implementation for updates to species lists and information. An updated list may be requested through the ECOS-IPaC system by completing the same process used to receive the enclosed list. Section 7 of the Act requires that all federal agencies (or their designated non-federal representative), in consultation with the Service, insure that any action federally authorized, funded, or carried out by such agencies is not likely to jeopardize the continued existence of any federally -listed endangered or threatened species. A biological assessment or evaluation may be prepared to fulfill that requirement and in determining whether additional consultation with the Service is necessary. In addition to the federally -protected species list, information on the species' life histories and habitats and information on completing a biological assessment or 12/14/2020 Event Code: 04EN2000-2021-E-00782 evaluation and can be found on our web page at http://www.fws.gov/raleigh. Please check the web site often for updated information or changes If your project contains suitable habitat for any of the federally -listed species known to be present within the county where your project occurs, the proposed action has the potential to adversely affect those species. As such, we recommend that surveys be conducted to determine the species' presence or absence within the project area. The use of North Carolina Natural Heritage program data should not be substituted for actual field surveys. If you determine that the proposed action may affect (i.e., likely to adversely affect or not likely to adversely affect) a federally -protected species, you should notify this office with your determination, the results of your surveys, survey methodologies, and an analysis of the effects of the action on listed species, including consideration of direct, indirect, and cumulative effects, before conducting any activities that might affect the species. If you determine that the proposed action will have no effect (i.e., no beneficial or adverse, direct or indirect effect) on federally listed species, then you are not required to contact our office for concurrence (unless an Environmental Impact Statement is prepared). However, you should maintain a complete record of the assessment, including steps leading to your determination of effect, the qualified personnel conducting the assessment, habitat conditions, site photographs, and any other related articles. Please be aware that bald and golden eagles are protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (16 U.S.C. 668 et seq.), and projects affecting these species may require development of an eagle conservation plan (http://www.fws.gov/windenergy/ eagle_guidance.html). Additionally, wind energy projects should follow the wind energy guidelines (http://www.fws.gov/windenergy/) for minimizing impacts to migratory birds and bats. Guidance for minimizing impacts to migratory birds for projects including communications towers (e.g., cellular, digital television, radio, and emergency broadcast) can be found at: http:// www.fws.gov/migratorybirds/CurrentBirdlssues/Hazards/towers/towers.htm; http:// www.towerkill.com; and http://www.fws.gov/migratory birds/CurrentBirdlssues/Hazards/towers/ comtow.html. Not all Threatened and Endangered Species that occur in North Carolina are subject to section 7 consultation with the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service. Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon, sea turtles,when in the water, and certain marine mammals are under purview of the National Marine Fisheries Service. If your project occurs in marine, estuarine, or coastal river systems you should also contact the National Marine Fisheries Service, http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/ We appreciate your concern for threatened and endangered species. The Service encourages Federal agencies to include conservation of threatened and endangered species into their project planning to further the purposes of the Act. Please include the Consultation Tracking Number in the header of this letter with any request for consultation or correspondence about your project that you submit to our office.

The Service has reviewed the Online Project Review package submitted by email on January 27, 2021. Our comments are provided pursuant to, and in accordance with, provisions of the Endangered Species Act (the Act). The submitted package included a self -certification letter, a species conclusions table and a species list printout from the Information, Planning, and Consultation System (IPaQ website. No other information was included concerning species surveys or the potential activities on site (methods of construction, measures to avoid and minimize impacts on the site and downstream, etc.). The submitted documents indicate that the waterbodies on the site do not contain suitable habitat for listed aquatic species or species proposed to be listed. However, the proposed project drains to occupied NRWD habitat in the Neuse River. The NRWD was proposed for listing as threatened on May 21, 2019. A listing decision is still pending. The Service is pleased to see this proposal for compensatory mitigation in a watershed with known records of sensitive species and we encourage stream and wetland projects in these watersheds, because of the potential benefits to species downstream. However, we caution that the potential effects of the proposed plans and construction methods should be carefully considered during review. The submittals do not consider the potential effects to listed and proposed aquatic species downstream of the site, including the NRWD. In general, outside of stream reaches where listed or proposed aquatic species are found, in -water work is acceptable and encouraged; particularly with stringent adherence to sediment and erosion control requirements. Carefully -planned restoration, enhancement, or preservation of those streams may provide great benefits to the species downstream. Beneficial effects to species, as well as detrimental effects, are considered "effects" for the purposes of the ESA. Aquatic resources are highly susceptible to sedimentation. We recommend that all practicable measures be taken to avoid adverse impacts to sensitive aquatic species, including avoiding in - water work in reaches with occupied habitat, implementing stringent sediment and erosion control measures, constructing the project in the dry, and maintaining any remaining natural, vegetated buffers on streams on the project site (if applicable). The Service encourages you to continue project planning on this site, due to the potential benefits to aquatic species in the Neuse River. However, because the Service does not currently have enough information concerning the project plans and construction methods, we cannot concur with your species determinations at this time. We look forward to coordinating with you and reviewing more information concerning this project. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Kathy Matthews of this office at kathryn_matthews@fws.gov. Please note that Service staff are teleworking to lessen the spread of COVID-19.

A Site Map is enclosed. The site is located at latitude 35.359233 longitude - 78.102769. The Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel is being developed to provide riparian buffer and nutrient offset mitigation in the Neuse River basin. The project will include buffer restoration along one unnamed tributary and two ditches that flow to the Neuse River. This buffer mitigation project will reduce sediment and nutrient loading, provide and improve terrestrial and in stream habitats, and improve stream and bank stability. The area surrounding the streams and channels proposed for buffer restoration is currently row crop agricultural fields. Restoring the vegetative buffer on the areas up to 200 feet from the stream and ditches will remove the crops and fertilizer inputs within the project area. The restored floodplain areas will filter sediment during high rainfall events. The establishment of riparian buffers will create shading to minimize thermal heating. Finally, newly planted native vegetation will provide cover and food for wildlife. The major goals of the proposed buffer restoration project are to provide ecological and water quality enhancements to the Neuse River Basin by creating a functional riparian corridor and restoring the riparian buffer. Waters of the United States 404/401 permitting is not required for this buffer mitigation site as construction activities will only involve planting riparian vegetation and will not impact project streams or downstream resources. We thank you in advance for your timely response and cooperation. Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have concerning the extent of site disturbance associated with this project.

Based on the information provided, indicating that there is no earth -moving proposed, and only planting of the stream and ditch buffers, the Service would concur with a Not Likely to Adversely Affect determination for any aquatic species that may be present in streams on the site or downstream. In the future, you can either include whatever information you think would be helpful for us to understand the project (mitigation plans, site maps), and/or you can include some extra information in the species conclusions table. For example, in the "Notes/Documentation" column, you could indicate that no earth -moving is proposed, or that the work involves only buffer planting. That would help justify your conclusions for species on -site and downstream. If there is the potential for listed aquatic species on or very close to the site, the more info you can provide us, the better. The Service is very pleased to see these types of projects proposed in these watersheds. If you have any questions while you are putting together Online Review Packages, please don't hesitate to contact me. Please note that I am teleworking almost exclusively.

WILDLANDS ENGINEERING January 27, 2021 Renee Gledhill -Earley State Historic Preservation Office 4617 Mail Service Center Raleigh, NC 27699-4617 Subject: Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel Wayne County, North Carolina Dear Ms. Gledhill -Earley, Wildlands Engineering, Inc. requests review and comment on any possible issues that might emerge with respect to archaeological or cultural resources associated with a potential riparian buffer restoration project on the Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel located in Wayne County, NC. A Site Map and a USGS Topographic Map showing the approximate project area are enclosed. The topographic figure was prepared from the Southwest Goldsboro 7.5- Minute USGS Topographic Quadrangle, and the site is located at latitude 35.359233 longitude-78.102769. The Black Dirt Mitigation Bank Parcel is being developed to provide riparian buffer and nutrient offset mitigation in the Neuse River. The project will include restoration of one unnamed tributary and two ditches that flow to the Neuse River. The unnamed tributary has areas of established forest vegetation on the left bank outside of the proposed easement, while the right side has little to no existing riparian buffer. Historical imagery shows that the right side of the tributary was cleared to create more agricultural land. The two ditches on site have little to no riparian buffer throughout and are surrounded by open agricultural fields that have been primarily used to grow row crops. The major goals of riparian buffer and nutrient offset mitigation bank project are to provide ecological and water quality enhancements to the Neuse River Basin while creating a functional riparian corridor at the site level. This will be accomplished by restoring the vegetative buffer on the areas up to 200 feet from streams and ditches, along with permanently preserving and protecting the site through establishing a conservation easement. No surveyed sites listed on the North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) are located within a mile of the site. In addition, the site is not located near any sites listed on the National Register with the SHPO. No other architectural structures or archaeological artifacts have been observed or noted during preliminary surveys of the site for restoration purposes. We ask that you review the site based on the attached information to determine the presence of any historic properties within the conservation easement area proposed as shown on Figures 1 and 2. We thank you in advance for your timely response and cooperation. Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have concerning the extent of site disturbance associated with this project.
