Comment: DWR removed all attachments and Appendices that did not have any edits or comments in order to keep the file smaller for sending electronically. Response: Noted, thanks. 2. Comment: DWR ID # is 2020-1937v2 Response: updated Page 5 3. Comment: Add a Figure depicting the CE of Phase B since one of the features 1E doesn't have to get a credit deduction for non -diffused flow because the rest of that ditch will be part of Phase B. Response: Phase B CE was added to Figure 2-7 and appropriate language added with regard to Feature 1E to a new diffuse flow section and to subject figures. 4. Comment: move to 7.1 Table, not an appendix; DWR forgot to add this comment on Phase B BPDP so please incorporate same comment in that document as well. Response: Moved to Table 9. Table of Contents restructure based on your comments from other BPDPs. Diffuse flow and Seed mix table added as well. Page 6 5. Comment: Inserted Text "and ephemeral channels" Response: Updated Page 10 6. Comment: Reference the Appendix E here and state that it is a "Template CE" that will be used to develop the CE for the Parcel. Response: Updated, now appendix G see comment 4 response above. Appendix references updated throughout the BPDP. 7. Comment: DWR recommends RS 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 RS not suggested these activities for parcel preparation? Response: You didn't require it in the approved Moccasin Creek BPDP, which we used as a template. Language added regarding ripping which we do anyway, and soil testing which we might do. 8. Comment: Add a note that feature 1E, which is a ditch, will have it's upstream reach/segment included in a separate easement affiliated with the Phase B riparian restoration project. this language is needed to justify why it doesn't get a credit deduction per the diffused flow memo. Response: Note added regarding Feature 1E in new diffused flow section (4.2) and table (table 6). See addition below: 4.2 Diffused Flow Per DWR Buffer Interpretation/Clarification Memo #2008-019— Diffuse Flow, stormwater carried by lateral ditches that enter buffered streams will receive a 4,350 sq. ft. credit deduction. The credit deduction will be calculated at start of the credit generating area from any features subject to the Diffuse Flow Memo (Appendix A, Figures 5 and 6). Table 6 details each site feature and its subjectivity of the Diffuse Flow Memo.

Phase A conservation easement extends to and covers the origin point of & overland surface flow (TOB — 200') to Feature 1E. 1F Ditch Yes; credit deduction applied (Figure 5, Appendix A). 9. Comment: There may need to be a separate section (as was done for Phase B BPDP) titled Diffused Flow: Explain how RS will restore diffused flow on the site. Specifically, 1Ca and 1D currently are considered as non -diffused flow since the ditches continue beyond the CE and will need be addressed. Reference the diffused flow memo from the MBI if other means of creating diffused flow cannot be obtained (i.e. plugging, filling planting with the footprint of the ditch) Response: Section 4.2 added see above comment 8 response. The ditch at 1D does no continue beyond the CE. I think the property boundary is shown on some figures, looks like a ditch, and may be misleading. 10. Comment: Commit to ensuring that stem species will be well mixed before planting to ensure diversity of bare roots across the planted area. Response: Updated. Added specific language "Species will be well mixed within the planting scheme to ensure diversity of bare roots across planted areas and monitoring plots." Page 11 11. Comment: There are no shrubs shown in the table, correct? Response: Correct, shrubs are not a requirement. Several midstory species are selected to provide canopy diversity, see updated Table 7 tree species list for reference. 12. Comment: Strikethrough Text "and shrubs collectively" Response: Updated 13. Comment: I don't usually see Pecan trees in planting plans. Why is this specie chose Response: I have seen mature ones on neighboring sites. It turns out they aren't available this year so are removed from the planting plan. Also, trees have been ordered, see in Table 7 updated species list. 14. Comment: What is the anticipated spacing of stem? Response: Added language after table 7 " at a density of 680 stems per acre on 8ft x 8ft spacing." 15. Comment: Include the type of Seed Mix RS intends to use; I need to confirm that there will be annual and perennial seed. Response: See table 8 in BPDP, shown below: Table 2: Proposed Seed Mix Common Name Scientific Name Annual/Perennial Plains Coreopsis Coreopsis tinctoria Annual Deertongue, Tioga Panicum clandestinum Perennial Blackeyed Susan Rudbeckia hirta Perennial Purpletop Tridens flavus Perennial Lanceleaf Coreopsis Coreopsis lanceloata Perennial Clasping Coneflower Rudbeckia amplexicaulis Annual Oxeye Sunflower Heliopsis helianthoides Perennial Common Yarrow Achillea millefolium Perennial Perennial Gaillardia (Blanketflower) Gaillardia aristata Perennial Purple Coneflower Echinacea purpurea Perennial Page 2 of 5 Restoration Systems, LLC 1101 Haynes St. Suite 211 Raleigh, North Carolina Ph: (919) 755-9490 Fx: (919) 755-9492 RESTORATION SYSTEMS LLC 16. Comment: It is also highly recommended that RS agree to include pollinator species in their seed. DWR understands this is not a requirement, and that RS does not have to do this. Therefore, adding it into your plan is only a suggestion and completely voluntary. Response: Noted. See seed mix table in comment 15 response above. 17. Comment: RS should take measures to ensure that plots are diverse (have 4 species represented in plots 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). Response: Noted Page 12 18. Comment: Add a section 5.3 titled Easement Boundaries and provide a description of how RS will mark these boundaries. Additionally, add the following language to this new section: "all boundaries must be marked and clearly identifiable prior to the NCDWR onsite AsBuilt Inspection to assess conditions for the Task 2 credit release." Add language committing to putting contact information on easement placards as well. Response: Section 5.3 added, see language below: 5.3 Parcel Protection & 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 fence, marker, post, tree -blazing, or other means as allowed by site conditions and/or conservation easement and will be clearly marked prior to the Task 2 site visit by DWR. 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. A complete and detailed survey of the easement boundaries will be included in the As -Built Report. Page 13 19. Comment: add language consistent with the MBI language that the long-term steward will be chosen prior to the year 4 monitoring period. Response: Updated. Unclear if you mean easement transfer or just "choosing" long-term steward. We assume easement transfer. 20. Comment: 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. Response: Updated 21. Comment: there should be deductions required on some features to compensate for non -diffused flow from ditches feeding into CE. Make note of this here and what that deduction amount is. Make sure to reference the clarification memo from your MBI references. I suggest referring to it as "non-credit area" Response: Updated by adding the following language to 7.0 Project Credit Potential: "Credit deductions were calculated to account for diffused flow (DWR Diffuse Flow Memorandum 2008-0819). Accordingly, 8,700 sq. ft. of "non-credit area" was removed in accordance with DWR's Diffuse Flow Memorandum (Appendix A, Figure 6 & Table 9)." 22. Comment: Replace Text "Project Credit" Response: Updated. 23. Comment: Inserted Text "Nitrogen and Phosphorus" Response: Updated Page 3 of 5 Restoration Systems, LLC 1101 Haynes St. Suite 211 Raleigh, North Carolina Ph: (919) 755-9490 Fx: (919) 755-9492 RESTORATION SYSTEMS LLC 24. Comment: I don't really understand this statement and I've seen it in other BPDPs from RS. The nutrient offset calculation was derived by DWR and is noted in your MBI. Not sure if this statement means something else, but the way it's worded implies RS derived the calculation form some other means. Response: I think the point of this sentence is to reference the total credits are based on a "conceptual design" and may change at the as -built stage when the survey is finalized. See updated clarifying language. 25. Comment: DWR forgot to delete the reference to Appendix B in the Phase B BPDP. Please correct the error in that document as well. Response: Updated in Phase B BPDP 26. Comment: Replace Text "Project" Response: Updated 27. Comment: Inserted Text "in detail" Response: Updated 28. Comment: Replace Text "Table 7.1" Response: Updated, now Table 9 29. Comment: Replace Text "Project" Replace: Whole sentence deleted as summary table replaced with full table. 30. Comment: Acknowledge that there are some riparian areas that will be included in the CE but not receiving any credit due the existing condition of the vegetation, and that these areas are defined as "Preservation/no credit areas" on the corresponding Figure 6. Response: Updated with the following language: "There are some riparian areas that will be included in the conservation easement but not receiving any credit due to the existing condition of the vegetation that are defined as preservation/no credit areas on Figure 6." 31. Comment: Need to indicate how many ledgers RS will have for this site and that they are N and P ledgers. DWR forgot to add this comment on Phase B BPDP so please incorporate same comment in that document as well. Response: Updated with the following language: "The Sponsor will maintain two separate ledgers for the Parcel, one for nitrogen offsets and one for phosphorus offsets." Page 15 32. Comment: It appears the electronic version of the maps cut off the entire "plan sheets". I have them in the hard copy though. Make sure they are scanned appropriately for final submittal. Response: will do Page 16 33. Comment: Correct this label to show 1B as an ephemeral channel, not a ditch Response: Figure set updated Page 19 34. Comment: Add diffused flow deduction here Response: Updated 35. Comment: There is a feature cut off of this map that RS will need to address on the final figure. Ditches 1D and 1Ca come into this site from offsite and thus delivers non -diffused flows in the Ditch proposed for credit. Does RS have a plan for ensuring diffused flows? What is the plan to address non -diffused flow here or does RS intend to apply the memo from reference #4 in the MBI? Response: 1D originates within the CE. I think the property boundary is drawn on some figures and looks like a ditch. We have made the diffuse flow deduction on 1Ca. Notes for each are included on figure 6 and section 4.2 was added to clarify diffuse flow approach. See response to comment 8 above. 36. Comment: Correct label to read ephemeral and not a ditch Response: Updated Page 4 of 5 Restoration Systems, LLC 1101 Haynes St. Suite 211 Raleigh, North Carolina Ph: (919) 755-9490 Fx: (919) 755-9492 Page 20 37. Comment: Show deductions for non -diffused flow here Response: Updated 38. Comment: Explain that this ditch is included in RS' Phase A and therefore non -diffused flow is not an issue. Response: Updated. Also added CE for Phase B to figures. RESTORATION SYSTEMS ILL.0 39. Comment: Show deductions for non -diffused flow here (at end of ditch which is cut off on map) Response: D1 originates within the conservation easement. The parcel line is shown on some figures and may look like a ditch. See response to comment 35 above for further description of diffuse flow approach. Page 25 40. Comment: Edit Figure name to be 7.1, clarify it's for Phase A, move to be located in section 7 Response: Added reference to section & and titled Table 9 as diffuse flow and seed table have also been added. 41. Comment: Remove all numbers from this column since none are creditable for buffer mitigation. Response: Updated 42. Comment: Feature 1B was determined to be an ephemeral channel and not a ditch. Correct the table to show 1B as an ephemeral channel Response: Updated 43. Comment: Assuming the diffused Memo will be applied to this site, please add a line item here for capturing the total area of non -diffused flow Credit Type — Nutrient, Feature Type — Ditch, Mitigation Activity — Rest, Feature Name = Diffused flow deductions; Total Area = ???; Then Check "NO" in both buffer and nutrient offset columns Your total area of nutrient offset credits will change so update all totals in the BPDP to reflect the new amount.

The Parcel shall be planned and designed according to the MBI, 15A NCAC 02B .0703, and the Consolidated Buffer Mitigation Rule 15A NCAC 02B .0295. Located in Edgecombe County, North Carolina, the project encompasses 65.44 acres of land utilized for row crop production. The project will restore the riparian area along two (2) unnamed tributaries and six (6) surface water conveyances (ditches and ephemeral channels) with hydrologic connection to the White Oak Swamp and subsequently the Tar River. The primary purpose of the Parcel is to provide nutrient offset credits for stormwater and wastewater requirements within the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Cataloging Unit 03020101. The Parcel is located on two contiguous tracts of land 1.2 miles northeast of White Oak Swamp and immediately adjacent to the tracts of land which contain the Dead Tree Phase B Bank Parcel. The Parcel is located between Whitakers and Leggett, approximately 5.5 miles east of the town of Whitakers in Edgecombe County, NC (Appendix A, Figure 1). The Barnes and Harris families are the current fee simple owners of the two tracts of land associated with the Bank Parcel, which have been historically and are currently used as agricultural fields with minimal existing forest/non-agricultural area. The Parcel is within the Tar -Pamlico River Basin 14-digit USGS Cataloging Unit 03020101130100 of the Middle Atlantic Coastal Plain (North Carolina Division of Water Quality [NCDWQ] Sub -basin Number 03-03-02) (Appendix A, Figure 1). DWR representatives conducted an on -site stream determination on December 20, 2020. A Stream Determination letter for the Parcel was provided on April 6, 2021, and a Site Viability for Buffer & Nutrient Offset letter was provided by the Division on May 11, 2021. Both letters are provided in Appendix B. 2.0 Mitigation Project Summary 2.1 Project Goals The primary goals of the proposed nutrient offset project are to provide ecological and water quality enhancements to the Tar -Pamlico River Basin by restoring the riparian area to create a functional, forested, riparian corridor. Specific improvements to water quality and ecological processes are outlined below in Table 1. Table 1: Ecological and Water Quality Goals Goal Objective Decrease nutrient levels Nutrient input will be decreased by filtering runoff from the agricultural fields through restored native buffer zones. 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. Dead Tree Phase A, Bank Parcel Development Plan (DWR ID#: 2020-1937v2) Tar -Pamlico River Basin 8-Digit HUC: 03020101 Pg. 1 Table 1: Ecological and Water Quality Goals (Continued) Goal Objective 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. Decrease water temperature and increase dissolved oxygen concentrations Planted riparian trees will shade the streams as they mature, reducing thermal pollution. Create appropriate terrestrial habitat Buffer areas will be restored by planting native vegetation. Permanently protect the project Parcel from harmful uses A conservation easement will be recorded on the Parcel. 2.2 Existing Parcel Conditions The proposed nutrient offset project includes approximately 60.271 acres of open agricultural fields along unnamed tributaries to White Oak Swamp. The agricultural fields are currently being used for row crop production, including cotton, corn, and peanuts. In addition, the farmer regularly applies fertilizers and herbicides to the fields (Appendix A, Figure 2). Land use and general site conditions have not changed since the site photos in Appendix A were taken. Site features predominantly originate on -site, and all drain to White Oak Swamp approximately 1.2 miles downstream. A review of historic aerials shows the property has been historically and consistently utilized for row crop production (Appendix A).

A copy of both the "On -Site Origin Determination for Applicability to the Tar -Pamlico Buffer Rules" and "Site Viability for Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset" are provided in Appendix B. In addition, a summary of their determinations, specific to Parcel Features, is shown in Table 3 and correlated with stream segments as labeled in Figure 2, Appendix A. There have been no changes to land use in the project area since DWR's site visit, and project photos contained in Appendix A were taken. Table 3: Project Features DWR Feature ID In Field Classification Subject to Buffer Rules Nutrient Offset Viability 1 Stream Yes Yes 1A-1 Stream Yes Yes 1A-E Ephemeral No Yes 1A-D Ditch >3ft depth No Yes 1B Ephemeral No Yes 1Ca Ditch >3ft depth No Yes 1D Ditch >3ft depth No Yes 1E Ditch >3ft depth No Yes 1F Ditch >3ft depth No Yes 2.3 Watershed Characterization The Parcel is located within USGS HUC 03020101 and DWR Subbasin 03-03-02. Features drain to Whtie Oak Swamp, which is classified as C and NSW by DWR. Class C waters are designated for recreational use, agriculture, fishing and fish consumption, and the maintenance of biological integrity for wildlife. The NSW designation applies to surface waters that are experiencing excessive growths of microscopic or macroscopic vegetation. The Parcel topography, as indicated on the Draughn, NC USGS 7.5-minute topographic quadrangle, shows gently sloped areas throughout the Parcel (Figure 3). Land uses draining to the project reaches are primarily agriculture with some forested use. 2.4 Soils The Parcel is mapped by the Edgecombe County Soil Survey. Project soils are described below in Table 4. An image of the paper copy of the 1979 Soil Survey of Edgecombe County is provided in Figure 4. A custom soil report is provided in Appendix C.

The landscape is characterized by flatlands to gently rolling hills and valleys. Parcel elevations range from 74 to 96 feet above sea level. The Coastal Plain primarily consists of marine sedimentary rocks comprised of sand, clay, and limestone formed through the deposition of estuarine and marine sediments within the last 140 million years. According to the Geologic Map of North Carolina (1985), the underlying geology of the Parcel is mapped as the Yorktown and Duplin Formations. The Yorktown Formation is described as fossiliferous clay with varying amounts of fine-grained sand, bluish -gray shell material commonly concentrated in lenses, mainly in areas north of the Neuse River. The Duplin Formation is shelly, medium to coarse -grained sand and sandy marl. 2.6 Existing Vegetative Communities Existing vegetation within the Parcel consists of active row crop fields with narrow streamside thickets, as shown in the attached site photos (Appendix A). 2.7 Threatened and Endangered Species The NC Natural Heritage Program (NHP) database and the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) database were searched for federally listed threatened and endangered plant and animal species in Edgecombe County, NC. Six species, the Neuse River Waterdog, Carolina Madtom, Atlantic Pigtoe, Dwarf Wedgemussel, Tar River Spinymussel, and Yellow Lance are listed or proposed for listing as federally endangered or threatened species. RS performed pedestrian surveys of the Parcel in December 2020 and determined no suitable habitat for the species with the proposed Parcel. The USFWS Self -Certification Letter, USFWS concurrence, and NHP Report are included in Appendix D. The presence of conditions or characteristics that can hinder restoration activities on the Parcel was evaluated. The evaluation focused primarily on the presence of hazardous materials, utilities, and restrictive easements, rare/threatened/endangered species or critical habitats, the potential for hydrologic trespass, and existing utility easements. Existing information regarding Parcel constraints was acquired and reviewed, including an Environmental Records Report developed by Environmental Data Resources Inc., which located no evidence of environmental risk associated with the Parcel (Appendix E). In addition, any Parcel conditions that can restrict the restoration and implementation were documented during the field investigation. As a result of our review and field surveys, no known Parcel constraints exist that may hinder proposed restoration activities. Potential constraints reviewed include the following; 2.8 Cultural Resources and Significant Natural Heritage Areas There are no existing structures in the project area or on the larger tract of land. SHPO was contacted with a request for review and comment on February 25, 2021, and concluded in a response letter on April 1, 2021, that "the project as proposed will not have an effect on any historic structures." All communication with SHPO is included in Appendix F. 2.9 FEMA Floodplain Compliance No grading activities are proposed in the floodplain, so a floodplain development permit will not be required. Additionally, no hydraulic modeling is proposed for this project. 2.10 Parcel Location, Parcel Constraints, and Access The Parcel is in rural Edgecombe County, near the town of Whitakers. The Parcel is accessible for construction, monitoring, and long-term stewardship from Red Hill Church Road (Appendix A, Figure 2). An access road and associated access easement will be detailed in the final conservation easement survey Dead Tree Phase A, Bank Parcel Development Plan (DWR ID#: 2020-1937v2) Pg. 4 Tar -Pamlico River Basin 8-Digit HUC: 03020101 and recorded at the Edgecombe County Register of Deeds. DOT right of ways, powerlines, and associated easements will be excluded from the conservation easement. 2.11 Existing Utility Line An existing utility line runs along the northern edge of Red Hill Church Road. The utility lines are excluded from the Parcel's footprint. An additional five-foot offset will be applied between the utility right-of-way and the start of the conservation easement boundary, Appendix A Figure 2. 2.12 Other Environmental Conditions An Environmental Data Resources, Inc (EDR) Radius Map Report with Geocheck was provided for the Parcel on February 26, 2021. Neither the target property nor the adjacent properties were listed in any of the Federal, State, or Tribal environmental databases searched by EDR. The executive summary of the EDR report is included in Appendix E. 3.0 Site Protection Instrument The land required for planting, management, and stewardship of the mitigation project includes portions of the larger tract of land listed in Table 5. The Parcel will remain in private ownership, protected in its entirety by an approved DWR conservation easement, and managed/held by an approved DWR long-term steward under the terms detailed in the approved conservation easement. A template conservation easement that will be used to develop the conservation easement for this Parcel is provided in Appendix G. Table 5: Bank Parcel Fee Simple Ownership Owner Name D.B/Pg.

In addition, the project design will ensure that no adverse impacts to wetlands or existing riparian buffers occur. Figure 5 illustrates the conceptual design for the Parcel. 4.1 Parcel Preparation The land use within 200 feet from the top of bank of project features is either forested and will not be impacted, or is agricultural land maintained for crops. Areas slated for restoration may require soil testing and will be ripped to break up compact soil. No permits are necessary, including 404 (US Army Corps of Engineers), 401 (NC Division of Water Resources), and Land Quality Erosion and Sediment Control (NC Division of Energy, Mineral, and Land Resources). Site preparation will include select herbicide treatments and/or limited mechanical clearing to remove undesirable vegetation and may include soil amendments. Where needed, invasive species will be selectively removed and/or spot treated by a licensed pesticide applicator. Dead Tree Phase A, Bank Parcel Development Plan (DWR ID#: 2020-1937v2) Pg. 5 Tar -Pamlico River Basin 8-Digit HUC: 03020101 4.2 Diffused Flow Per DWR Buffer Interpretation/Clarification Memo #2008-019 — Diffuse Flow, stormwater carried by lateral ditches that enter buffered streams will receive a 4,350 sq. ft. credit deduction. The credit deduction will be calculated at start of the credit generating area from any features subject to the Diffuse Flow Memo (Appendix A, Figures 5 and 6). Table 6 details each site feature and its subjectivity of the Diffuse Flow Memo. Table 6: Diffuse Flow Summary Feature Classification Diffuse Flow Subjectivity 1A-D Ditch No; origin point located within the conservation easement. 1B Ephemeral No; origin point located within the conservation easement. 1Ca Ditch Yes; credit deduction applied (Figure 5, Appendix A). 1D Ditch No; origin point located within the conservation easement. 1E Ditch No; feature spans two watersheds and continues into the Dead Tree Phase B Parcel (DWR 2020-1937v3) and subject to the Phase B conservation easement and restoration plan. Phase A conservation easement extends to and covers the origin point of & overland surface flow (TOB — 200') to Feature 1E. 1F Ditch Yes; credit deduction applied (Figure 5, Appendix A). 4.3 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 encroachment of undesirable species that may out -compete the planted native vegetation. Tree species planted across the Parcel are anticipated to include a mixture of the species listed in Table 7. Species will be well mixed within the planting scheme to ensure diversity of bare roots across planted areas and monitoring plots. Species availability may result in the substitution of regionally appropriate native species. A minimum of 4 species of trees will be planted. Final species composition and density will be detailed in the As -built Report.

Trees will be planted at a density sufficient to meet the performance standards outlined in Rule 15A NCAC 02B .0295 of 260 planted trees per acre at the end of five years of monitoring. In addition, no one tree species will be greater than 50% of the established stems. An appropriate seed mix of annual and perennial species listed below in Table 8 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. Planting is tentatively scheduled for February 2022 at a density of 680 stems per acre on 8ft x 8ft spacing.

The plots will be randomly placed throughout the planted riparian areas. A total of 49 plots (2% of the restoration credit generating area) will be established within the riparian restoration areas (Figure 7). 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 49 plots. Photos will be taken from all photo points each monitoring year and provided in the annual reports. All planted stems will be marked with flagging tape and recorded. Planting is scheduled for February 2022. 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 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 monitoring year five. Appropriate and desirable native volunteer species may be included in the Parcel's density to meet the performance standards with DWR approval. Restoration Systems shall submit the annual monitoring report to DWR by December 31 of each year for five consecutive years and will follow the terms and conditions of the Dead Tree Phase A Mitigation Banking Instrument (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. Site maintenance will be performed to correct any identified problems on the Parcel that have a high likelihood of affecting the project's 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. Any parcel maintenance performed will be included in the monitoring report for that year. A rigorous herbicide schedule may need to be implemented in the first few years of tree establishment in the restoration areas to prevent the 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 and any maintenance performed will be reported in the annual monitoring reports to DWR. If mowing is deemed necessary by the Sponsor during the monitoring period, the Sponsor must receive approval from DWR prior to conducting any mowing activities within Tar -Pamlico Buffer Zones 1 and 2 to ensure that no buffer violations have occurred. Dead Tree Phase A, Bank Parcel Development Plan (DWR ID#: 2020-1937v2) Pg. 8 Tar -Pamlico River Basin 8-Digit HUC: 03020101 5.3 Parcel Protection & 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 fence, marker, post, tree -blazing, or other means as allowed by site conditions and/or conservation easement and will be clearly marked prior to the Task 2 site visit by DWR. 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. A complete and detailed survey of the easement boundaries will be included in the As -Built Report. 6.0 Financial Assurances and Long -Term Management 6.1 Financial Assurances Following approval of the Dead Tree Phase A Nutrient Offset 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, but not less than $150,000. 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. The performance/maintenance bond shall apply at the inception of the monitoring period for a term of one year and be extended annually for a minimum of five years. Upon DWR 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 year's monitoring period, with confirmation of renewal provided to DWR with each annual monitoring report when applicable. DWR 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 Plan The Parcel will remain in private ownership, protected in its entirety by an approved DWR long-term steward, and will be managed under the terms detailed in an approved DWR conservation easement. The long-term manager will be responsible for periodic inspection of the Parcel to ensure that the restrictions documented in the recorded easement are upheld in perpetuity. The conservation easement will be transferred to the long term steward prior to the year 4 monitoring period. 7.0 Project Credit Potential Of the 65.44 acres protected under the conservation easement, 60.071 acres are anticipated to provide Nitrogen and Phosphorus Nutrient Offset Credits (Figure 6) equivalent to 136,543.476 lbs. of nitrogen offset credit and 8,794.455 lbs. of phosphorous offset credit. Riparian area restoration, with a minimum of 50-feet from the top of bank (TOB), out 200-feet from the TOB, will general Nutrient Offset Credit. The nutrient offset credit summary below was derived based on Restoration Systems' conceptual design and may be adjusted in the AsBuilt Report. The management objectives, mitigation type, and proposed credits are presented in detail in the Project Credit Table provided in Table 9. These Nutrient Offset Credits will be neither convertible or transferable to any other credit type, including Riparian Buffer Mitigation. There Dead Tree Phase A, Bank Parcel Development Plan (DWR ID#: 2020-1937v2) Pg. 9 Tar -Pamlico River Basin 8-Digit HUC: 03020101 are some riparian areas that will be included in the conservation easement but not receiving any credit due to the existing condition of the vegetation that are defined as preservation/no credit areas on Figure 6. The Sponsor will maintain two separate ledgers for the Parcel, one for nitrogen offsets and one for phosphorus offsets. Credit deductions were calculated to account for diffused flow (DWR Diffuse Flow Memorandum 2008- 0819). Accordingly, 8,700 sq. ft. of "non-credit area" was removed in accordance with DWR's Diffuse Flow Memorandum (Appendix A, Figure 6 & Table 9). 8.0 Credit Release Upon submittal of the appropriate documentation by the Sponsor and subsequent approval by DWR, the mitigation credits associated with the Dead Tree Phase A Nutrient Offset Bank Parcel will be released as described in the credit release schedule found in the Dead Tree Umbrella Nutrient Offset Banking Instrument. 9.0 References Schafale, M.

The enclosed map(s) depict the feature(s) evaluated and this information is also summarized in the table below. Streams were evaluated for being ephemeral, at least intermittent, and subjectivity to the Tar -Pamlico Riparian Area Protection Rules. Streams that are considered "Subject" have been located on the most recently published NRCS Soil Survey of Edgecombe County and/or the most recent copy of the USGS Topographic (at 1:24,000 scale) map(s), have been located on the ground at the site, and possess characteristics that qualify them to be at least intermittent streams. Features that are considered "Not Subject" have been determined to not be at least intermittent, not present on the property, or not depicted on the required maps. This determination only addresses the applicability to the buffer rules within the proposed easement and does not approve any activity within buffers or within waters of the state.

They highlight soil limitations that affect various land uses and provide information about the properties of the soils in the survey areas. Soil surveys are designed for many different users, including farmers, ranchers, foresters, agronomists, urban planners, community officials, engineers, developers, builders, and home buyers. Also, conservationists, teachers, students, and specialists in recreation, waste disposal, and pollution control can use the surveys to help them understand, protect, or enhance the environment. Various land use regulations of Federal, State, and local governments may impose special restrictions on land use or land treatment. Soil surveys identify soil properties that are used in making various land use or land treatment decisions. The information is intended to help the land users identify and reduce the effects of soil limitations on various land uses. The landowner or user is responsible for identifying and complying with existing laws and regulations. Although soil survey information can be used for general farm, local, and wider area planning, onsite investigation is needed to supplement this information in some cases. Examples include soil quality assessments (http://www.nres.usda.gov/wps/ portal/nrcs/main/soils/health/) and certain conservation and engineering applications. For more detailed information, contact your local USDA Service Center (https://offices.sc.egov.usda.gov/locator/app?agency=nres) or your NRCS State Soil Scientist (http://www.nres.usda.gov/wps/portal/nres/detail/soils/contactus/? cid=nres142p2_053951). Great differences in soil properties can occur within short distances. Some soils are seasonally wet or subject to flooding. Some are too unstable to be used as a foundation for buildings or roads. Clayey or wet soils are poorly suited to use as septic tank absorption fields. A high water table makes a soil poorly suited to basements or underground installations. The National Cooperative Soil Survey is a joint effort of the United States Department of Agriculture and other Federal agencies, State agencies including the Agricultural Experiment Stations, and local agencies. The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has leadership for the Federal part of the National Cooperative Soil Survey. Information about soils is updated periodically. Updated information is available through the NRCS Web Soil Survey, the site for official soil survey information.

They include a description of the soils and miscellaneous areas and their location on the landscape and tables that show soil properties and limitations affecting various uses. Soil scientists observed the steepness, length, and shape of the slopes; the general pattern of drainage; the kinds of crops and native plants; and the kinds of bedrock. They observed and described many soil profiles. A soil profile is the sequence of natural layers, or horizons, in a soil. The profile extends from the surface down into the unconsolidated material in which the soil formed or from the surface down to bedrock. The unconsolidated material is devoid of roots and other living organisms and has not been changed by other biological activity. Currently, soils are mapped according to the boundaries of major land resource areas (MLRAs). MLRAs are geographically associated land resource units that share common characteristics related to physiography, geology, climate, water resources, soils, biological resources, and land uses (USDA, 2006). Soil survey areas typically consist of parts of one or more MLRA. The soils and miscellaneous areas in a survey area occur in an orderly pattern that is related to the geology, landforms, relief, climate, and natural vegetation of the area. Each kind of soil and miscellaneous area is associated with a particular kind of landform or with a segment of the landform. By observing the soils and miscellaneous areas in the survey area and relating their position to specific segments of the landform, a soil scientist develops a concept, or model, of how they were formed. Thus, during mapping, this model enables the soil scientist to predict with a considerable degree of accuracy the kind of soil or miscellaneous area at a specific location on the landscape. Commonly, individual soils on the landscape merge into one another as their characteristics gradually change. To construct an accurate soil map, however, soil scientists must determine the boundaries between the soils. They can observe only a limited number of soil profiles. Nevertheless, these observations, supplemented by an understanding of the soil -vegetation -landscape relationship, are sufficient to verify predictions of the kinds of soil in an area and to determine the boundaries. Soil scientists recorded the characteristics of the soil profiles that they studied. They noted soil color, texture, size and shape of soil aggregates, kind and amount of rock fragments, distribution of plant roots, reaction, and other features that enable them to identify soils. After describing the soils in the survey area and determining their properties, the soil scientists assigned the soils to taxonomic classes (units). Taxonomic classes are concepts. Each taxonomic class has a set of soil characteristics with precisely defined limits. The classes are used as a basis for comparison to classify soils systematically. Soil taxonomy, the system of taxonomic classification used in the United States, is based mainly on the kind and character of soil properties and the arrangement of horizons within the profile. After the soil 5 Custom Soil Resource Report scientists classified and named the soils in the survey area, they compared the individual soils with similar soils in the same taxonomic class in other areas so that they could confirm data and assemble additional data based on experience and research. The objective of soil mapping is not to delineate pure map unit components; the objective is to separate the landscape into landforms or landform segments that have similar use and management requirements. Each map unit is defined by a unique combination of soil components and/or miscellaneous areas in predictable proportions. Some components may be highly contrasting to the other components of the map unit. The presence of minor components in a map unit in no way diminishes the usefulness or accuracy of the data. The delineation of such landforms and landform segments on the map provides sufficient information for the development of resource plans. If intensive use of small areas is planned, onsite investigation is needed to define and locate the soils and miscellaneous areas. Soil scientists make many field observations in the process of producing a soil map. The frequency of observation is dependent upon several factors, including scale of mapping, intensity of mapping, design of map units, complexity of the landscape, and experience of the soil scientist. Observations are made to test and refine the soil -landscape model and predictions and to verify the classification of the soils at specific locations. Once the soil -landscape model is refined, a significantly smaller number of measurements of individual soil properties are made and recorded. These measurements may include field measurements, such as those for color, depth to bedrock, and texture, and laboratory measurements, such as those for content of sand, silt, clay, salt, and other components. Properties of each soil typically vary from one point to another across the landscape. Observations for map unit components are aggregated to develop ranges of characteristics for the components. The aggregated values are presented. Direct measurements do not exist for every property presented for every map unit component. Values for some properties are estimated from combinations of other properties. While a soil survey is in progress, samples of some of the soils in the area generally are collected for laboratory analyses and for engineering tests. Soil scientists interpret the data from these analyses and tests as well as the field -observed characteristics and the soil properties to determine the expected behavior of the soils under different uses. Interpretations for all of the soils are field tested through observation of the soils in different uses and under different levels of management. Some interpretations are modified to fit local conditions, and some new interpretations are developed to meet local needs. Data are assembled from other sources, such as research information, production records, and field experience of specialists. For example, data on crop yields under defined levels of management are assembled from farm records and from field or plot experiments on the same kinds of soil. Predictions about soil behavior are based not only on soil properties but also on such variables as climate and biological activity. Soil conditions are predictable over long periods of time, but they are not predictable from year to year. For example, soil scientists can predict with a fairly high degree of accuracy that a given soil will have a high water table within certain depths in most years, but they cannot predict that a high water table will always be at a specific level in the soil on a specific date. After soil scientists located and identified the significant natural bodies of soil in the survey area, they drew the boundaries of these bodies on aerial photographs and 6 Custom Soil Resource Report identified each as a specific map unit. Aerial photographs show trees, buildings, fields, roads, and rivers, all of which help in locating boundaries accurately. 7 Soil Map The soil map section includes the soil map for the defined area of interest, a list of soil map units on the map and extent of each map unit, and cartographic symbols displayed on the map.

The map unit descriptions, along with the maps, can be used to determine the composition and properties of a unit. A map unit delineation on a soil map represents an area dominated by one or more major kinds of soil or miscellaneous areas. A map unit is identified and named according to the taxonomic classification of the dominant soils. Within a taxonomic class there are precisely defined limits for the properties of the soils. On the landscape, however, the soils are natural phenomena, and they have the characteristic variability of all natural phenomena. Thus, the range of some observed properties may extend beyond the limits defined for a taxonomic class. Areas of soils of a single taxonomic class rarely, if ever, can be mapped without including areas of other taxonomic classes. Consequently, every map unit is made up of the soils or miscellaneous areas for which it is named and some minor components that belong to taxonomic classes other than those of the major soils. Most minor soils have properties similar to those of the dominant soil or soils in the map unit, and thus they do not affect use and management. These are called noncontrasting, or similar, components. They may or may not be mentioned in a particular map unit description. Other minor components, however, have properties and behavioral characteristics divergent enough to affect use or to require different management. These are called contrasting, or dissimilar, components. They generally are in small areas and could not be mapped separately because of the scale used. Some small areas of strongly contrasting soils or miscellaneous areas are identified by a special symbol on the maps. If included in the database for a given area, the contrasting minor components are identified in the map unit descriptions along with some characteristics of each. A few areas of minor components may not have been observed, and consequently they are not mentioned in the descriptions, especially where the pattern was so complex that it was impractical to make enough observations to identify all the soils and miscellaneous areas on the landscape. The presence of minor components in a map unit in no way diminishes the usefulness or accuracy of the data. The objective of mapping is not to delineate 11 Custom Soil Resource Report pure taxonomic classes but rather to separate the landscape into landforms or landform segments that have similar use and management requirements. The delineation of such segments on the map provides sufficient information for the development of resource plans. If intensive use of small areas is planned, however, onsite investigation is needed to define and locate the soils and miscellaneous areas. An identifying symbol precedes the map unit name in the map unit descriptions. Each description includes general facts about the unit and gives important soil properties and qualities. Soils that have profiles that are almost alike make up a soil series. Except for differences in texture of the surface layer, all the soils of a series have major horizons that are similar in composition, thickness, and arrangement. Soils of one series can differ in texture of the surface layer, slope, stoniness, salinity, degree of erosion, and other characteristics that affect their use. On the basis of such differences, a soil series is divided into soil phases. Most of the areas shown on the detailed soil maps are phases of soil series. The name of a soil phase commonly indicates a feature that affects use or management. For example, Alpha silt loam, 0 to 2 percent slopes, is a phase of the Alpha series. Some map units are made up of two or more major soils or miscellaneous areas. These map units are complexes, associations, or undifferentiated groups. A complex consists of two or more soils or miscellaneous areas in such an intricate pattern or in such small areas that they cannot be shown separately on the maps. The pattern and proportion of the soils or miscellaneous areas are somewhat similar in all areas. Alpha -Beta complex, 0 to 6 percent slopes, is an example. An association is made up of two or more geographically associated soils or miscellaneous areas that are shown as one unit on the maps. Because of present or anticipated uses of the map units in the survey area, it was not considered practical or necessary to map the soils or miscellaneous areas separately. The pattern and relative proportion of the soils or miscellaneous areas are somewhat similar. Alpha -Beta association, 0 to 2 percent slopes, is an example. An undifferentiated group is made up of two or more soils or miscellaneous areas that could be mapped individually but are mapped as one unit because similar interpretations can be made for use and management. The pattern and proportion of the soils or miscellaneous areas in a mapped area are not uniform. An area can be made up of only one of the major soils or miscellaneous areas, or it can be made up of all of them. Alpha and Beta soils, 0 to 2 percent slopes, is an example.

Reid Wilson, Secretary Walter Clark Director, Division of Land and Water Stewardship NCNHDE-14953 The North Carolina Natural Heritage Program (NCNHP) appreciates the opportunity to provide information about natural heritage resources for the project referenced above. A query of the NCNHP database indicates that there are records for rare species, important natural communities, natural areas, and/or conservation/managed areas within the proposed project boundary. These results are presented in the attached `Documented Occurrences' tables and map. The attached `Potential Occurrences' table summarizes rare species and natural communities that have been documented within a one -mile radius of the property boundary. The proximity of these records suggests that these natural heritage elements may potentially be present in the project area if suitable habitat exists. Tables of natural areas and conservation/managed areas within a one -mile radius of the project area, if any, are also included in this report. If a Federally -listed species is documented within the project area or indicated within a one -mile radius of the project area, the NCNHP recommends contacting the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) for guidance. Contact information for USFWS offices in North Carolina is found here: https://www.fws.gov/offices/Directory/ListOffices.cfm?statecode=37. Please note that natural heritage element data are maintained for the purposes of conservation planning, project review, and scientific research, and are not intended for use as the primary criteria for regulatory decisions. Information provided by the NCNHP database may not be published without prior written notification to the NCNHP, and the NCNHP must be credited as an information source in these publications. Maps of NCNHP data may not be redistributed without permission. Also please note that the NC Natural Heritage Program may follow this letter with additional correspondence if a Dedicated Nature Preserve, Registered Heritage Area, Land and Water Fund easement, or an occurrence of a Federally -listed species is documented near the project area. If you have questions regarding the information provided in this letter or need additional assistance, please contact Rodney A. Butler at rodney.butlerca ncdcr.gov or 919-707-8603.

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 02/15/2021 Event Code: 04EN2000-2021-E-01462 2 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/migratorybirds/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 list was formerly know as CERCLIS, renamed to SEMS by the EPA in 2015. The list contains data on potentially hazardous waste sites that have been reported to the USEPA by states, municipalities, private companies and private persons, pursuant to Section 103 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA).

The list was formerly known as the CERCLIS-NFRAP, renamed to SEMS ARCHIVE by the EPA in 2015. EPA may perform a minimal level of assessment work at a site while it is archived if site conditions change and/or new information becomes available. Archived sites have been removed and archived from the inventory of SEMS sites. Archived status indicates that, to the best of EPA's knowledge, assessment at a site has been completed and that EPA has determined no further steps will be taken to list the site on the National Priorities List (NPL), unless information indicates this decision was not appropriate or other considerations require a recommendation for listing at a later time. The decision does not necessarily mean that there is no hazard associated with a given site; it only means that. based upon available information, the location is not judged to be potential NPL site.

Manufactured gas sites were used in the United States from the 1800's to 1950's to produce a gas that could be distributed and used as fuel. These plants used whale oil, rosin, coal, or a mixture of coal, oil, and water that also produced a significant amount of waste. Many of the byproducts of the gas production, such as coal tar (oily waste containing volatile and non-volatile chemicals), sludges, oils and other compounds are potentially hazardous to human health and the environment. The byproduct from this process was frequently disposed of directly at the plant site and can remain or spread slowly, serving as a continuous source of soil and groundwater contamination.

Assessment of the impact of contaminant migration generally has two principle investigative components: 1. Groundwater flow direction, and 2. Groundwater flow velocity. Groundwater flow direction may be impacted by surface topography, hydrology, hydrogeology, characteristics of the soil, and nearby wells. Groundwater flow velocity is generally impacted by the nature of the geologic strata. TC6383889.2s Page A-1 GEOCHECK® - PHYSICAL SETTING SOURCE SUMMARY GROUNDWATER FLOW DIRECTION INFORMATION Groundwater flow direction for a particular site is best determined by a qualified environmental professional using site -specific well data. If such data is not reasonably ascertainable, it may be necessary to rely on other sources of information, such as surface topographic information, hydrologic information, hydrogeologic data collected on nearby properties, and regional groundwater flow information (from deep aquifers). TOPOGRAPHIC INFORMATION Surface topography may be indicative of the direction of surficial groundwater flow. This information can be used to assist the environmental professional in forming an opinion about the impact of nearby contaminated properties or, should contamination exist on the target property, what downgradient sites might be impacted.

AQUIFLOW® Search Radius: 1.000 Mile. EDR has developed the AQUIFLOW Information System to provide data on the general direction of groundwater flow at specific points. EDR has reviewed reports submitted by environmental professionals to regulatory authorities at select sites and has extracted the date of the report, groundwater flow direction as determined hydrogeologically, and the depth to water table. MAP ID Not Reported LOCATION FROM TP GENERAL DIRECTION GROUNDWATER FLOW TC6383889.2s Page A-3 GEOCHECK® - PHYSICAL SETTING SOURCE SUMMARY GROUNDWATER FLOW VELOCITY INFORMATION Groundwater flow velocity information for a particular site is best determined by a qualified environmental professional using site specific geologic and soil strata data. If such data are not reasonably ascertainable, it may be necessary to rely on other sources of information, including geologic age identification, rock stratigraphic unit and soil characteristics data collected on nearby properties and regional soil information. In general, contaminant plumes move more quickly through sandy -gravelly types of soils than silty -clayey types of soils. GEOLOGIC INFORMATION IN GENERAL AREA OF TARGET PROPERTY Geologic information can be used by the environmental professional in forming an opinion about the relative speed at which contaminant migration may be occurring.

We have reviewed the materials provided and offer the following comments. There are no recorded archaeological sites within the project boundaries. However, the project area has never been systematically surveyed to determine the location or significance of archaeological resources. As the proposed mitigation activities are unlikely to adversely affect any archaeological sites given the limited nature of associated ground disturbance, we do not recommend any precautions be taken at this time. However, should any remains be identified during buffer restoration, or should additional mitigation activities be planned for the property, we request this information be forwarded to the Office of State Archaeology for review and comment. We have determined that the project as proposed will not have an effect on any historic structures. The above comments are made pursuant to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation's Regulations for Compliance with Section 106 codified at 36 CFR Part 800. Thank you for your cooperation and consideration. If you have questions concerning the above comment, contact Renee Gledhill -Earley, environmental review coordinator, at 919-814-6579 or environmental.review@ncdcr.gov. In all future communication concerning this project, please cite the above referenced tracking number.
