Signature Print Name:* Jamey McEachran Signature: * fires To: NCDWR - Katie Merritt Matt DeAngelo, RES From: Jamey McEachran, RES Subject: Thunder Swamp Phase II Revised Comment Response Memo Date: 4/01/2022 CC: N/A SECT/ON 1: INTRODUCTION Memorandum 1. This section needs to refer to the "proposed" UMBI and needs to identify that this UMBI is made between DWR and a Bank Sponsor. Identify the Bank Sponsor, who is EBX, and update the entire Plan to only refer to EBX and not RES. Throughout the document, RES and EBX are used interchangeably, but it should only be the Bank Sponsor where it is applicable. Clarifying language has been added to the paragraph, as described. Also, "RES" has been replaced with "EBX" throughout, where applicable. 2. Please also make sure the DWR Approval Letter for the Thunder Swamp Mitigation project for DMS is included in the Appendix and that it is referenced in the introduction of the BPDP. A sentence was added to the end of the first paragraph to state "The Thunder Swamp Buffer Mitigation Project (DWR # 2021-0306v3) Mitigation Plan was approved by DWR on February 25, 2022. The approval letter is found in Appendix E." The Approval letter was added to the Appendices as requested. SECT/ON 4.4. EASEWENTBOUNDAR/ES There is a note on one of the figures that there will be a future access corridor along DJ4. Need to include details about what this "access corridor" is going to be, including widths, necessity of the corridor, passive or active access, how will the crossing be utilized, any mechanical equipment, will it affect planted areas .... etc. Explain To clarify, the original concept (Figure 6) had a callout for a "Future Access Corridor." This was unaffiliated with the newly added internal crossing. The callout was intended to indicate that there would be space left along the edge of the parcel that range from 30-50 ft. wide to be used as a future corridor to access the remaining parcel area to the south, and so the easement shape was configured accordingly to exclude that corridor. This corridor already has a dirt road along it and there are no plans for any changes to that existing road. However, in the time since the Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Plan was submitted, the DMS State Property Office has provided a comment on the DMS Thunder Swamp easement shape to request an internal legal access in the Thunder Swamp Phase 11 Bank Easement to allow legal access into the DMS easement. Therefore, a 30-foot wide internal crossing has been added to the BPDP and all affected buffer/nutrient areas and calculations have been updated accordingly as this area will not generate credits. Therefore, Table 6 and Figures 6 and 9 have been revised, and language has been added to Section 4.4 to detail the internal crossing. This internal crossing is intended for legal access only and would be intended as passive access only and therefore will be included in the planted area. res.us Also, this access corridor will need to be identified prior to the As -Built Report, before credits are released so that DWR can be assured that no credit assets are affected ... and if so, adjustments made. The access corridor is now incorporated into the final BPDP. It will also be on the recorded plat. TABLE6THUNDER SWAMPPHASEUPROJECTCREDIT TABLE 4. DJ6 is an ephemeral channel and needs to be shown in the table as "ephemeral". DJ6 is shown as a I/P on the 3rd row and needs to be separated out. The Figure that corresponds with this table does not show buffer credit off of DJ6, so I'm assuming this mayjust be a typo. Explain This was a typo. "DJ6" text has been removed from the 3" row. 5. DJ6 is shown here within 0-100' width, but it is also included in the total area in row 3 above within the same 0-100' width. Explain Due to aforementioned typo. TABLE 7 CREDIT RELEASESCHEDULEFOR R/PAR/AN BUFFER AND NUTRIENTOFFSET 6. Add "Thunder Swamp DMS Full Delivery Mitigation Plan approved by DWR" to Task 1 This has been added. 7. Correct task 2 to read as follows: ..."All Riparian Earthwork & Mitigation Activities, Planting and Installation of Monitoring Devices completed for both the Thunder Swamp Full Delivery Site and the Bank Parcel, easement boundaries adequately marked, all applicable permits obtained . A site visit performed by DWR is required for this task. Language has been updated accordingly. 8. MBI expectations requires the easement to be transferred by December 31 of monitoring year 2, therefore the credit release should not be a full 10% for Year 2 Monitoring and that task should be dependent on the transfer occurring, I have provided my suggestions based on this. Table has been updated accordingly. 9. Move Task 6 to be Task 5; move task 5 to be Task 6. Make the new Task 5, 10% and Task 6, 10%. The goal here is to put a higher emphasis on getting the easement transferred before the approval of the Year 2 report, since both tasks should happen concurrently. I had originally proposed in the draft UMBI, that Task 5 & Task 6 be treated as 1 task rather than 2. However, I think it is cleaner the way you proposed it but with some modifications. Table has been updated accordingly. Please find enclosed the revised final BPDP submission with changes as noted above. Do not hesitate to reach out with any question or comments. Jamey can be reached by email atjmceachran@res.us or by phone at 919-623-9889. Thank you, ANOKA��� Matthew DeAngelo Ecologist Signature Jamey McEachran Project Manager fires To: NCDWR - Katie Merritt Matt DeAngelo, RES From: Katie Webber, RES Subject: Thunder Swamp Phase II Comment Response Memo Date: 2/15/2022 CC: N/A Notes: Memorandum In addition to addressing the following DWR comments, RES made two other minor revisions to the Thunder Swamp Phase II Final BPDP. These include: Easement was adjusted to smooth out an acute angle corner. This increased the overall easement area by 0.1 acre. The new total easement area is 30.53 acres. The above change resulted in an increase of the planted area acreage by 0.1 acre. The total planted area is now 21.38 acres, and the Upland Zone is now 19.98 acres. This is not a mitigation crediting area and does not result in a change in number of vegetation plots. The image at right depicts the easement and planted area change. COVER 1. Project # is 2021-0306v2 This has been revised. SECTION 1: INTRODUCTION 2. Add the DMS project's DWR ID# which is 2021-03060 This has been added. 'o-" SECTION 2: EXISTING RIPARIAN CONDITIONS 3. Photos pre -date site viability assessment. include more up-to-date photos. drone footage is acceptable as along as the pictures are timestamped Several more recent photos (dated November 18, 2021) have been added. SECTION 4: RIPARIAN RESTORATION, ENHANCEMENT, AND PRESERVATION IMPLEMENTATION PLAN 4. There is a small portion along the ephemeral reach along DJ4 that is less than 50' wide and therefore isn't viable for nutrient offset credit. add language that speaks to this and adjust the crediting accordingly updating all figures where necessary as well Language has been added, buffer/nutrient polygons were adjusted, figures were updated, and credits were allocated accordingly. 5. Commit to ensuring that stem species will be well mixed before planting to ensure diversity of bare roots across the planted area. The last sentence of the first paragraph in section 4.3 speaks to this. RES will make it a point to ensure proper mixing. res.us �J 6. Providers 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 As -Built Walkthrough 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). This is noted. 7. Where EBX feels it appropriate, add language regarding the requirement to provide notification to DWR within 30 days post site completion per the UMBI A sub -section (Section 4.5) has been added, containing pertinent language. 8. Add language noting that these boundaries must be clearly marked prior to the DWR as -built site visit for the Task 2 milestone. Language has been added. SECTION 6. LONG TERM MANAGEMENT PLAN 9. Since this isn't quite a definite option at the BPDP review stage, please add language that speaks to having a backup if DEQ ends up not being a viable option. Since the writing of the Draft plan, RES is confident that DEQ will be the long-term steward and are in direct negotiation. However, the document has been revised to clarify that the easement will be held by an Approved Conservation Easement holder and to acknowledge the fact that this has not been finalized. 10. 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 changed to Year 2 per conversations with DWR regarding the easement holder. SECTION 8. PROJECT'S CREDIT POTENTIAL 11. Insert the following: In accordance with the MBI, Any Credit conversions must be calculated using the guidance provided in the Clarified Procedures for Calculating Buffer Mitigation Credits and Nutrient Offset Credits letter issued by the DWR, This has been added. 12. This section may need to be modified after adjusting the measurements along the Ephemeral channels. This has been revised. 13. Since it's been decided that this site will have an UMBI instead of a MBI, please add a credit release schedule specific for this site. A Credit Release section (now Section 9) and a Credit Release Table (Table 7) have been added. TABLE 6. THUNDER SWAMP PHASE 11 PROJECT CREDIT TABLE 14. Ephemeral credits that are chosen for Nutrient Offset in the BPDP cannot be converted to Buffer credit in the future due to the maximum allowable credit for buffers on ephemerals in the rule. Where text in the BPDP conflicts with the numbers tallied in this table after corrections are made, correct accordingly. Thank you for clarifying. The credit table and applicable language have been updated. 15. Include a row for the area <50' and check Yes for BUFFER and No for NUTRIENT. This has been added. 16. Once measurements are corrected as indicated on figures, update the table accordingly. Figures and credit table have been revised accordingly. 2 FIGURE 6: BUFFER MITIGATION & NUTRIENT OFFSET CONCEPTUAL 17. The measurements should be taken perpendicular and landward from the top of bank since thats the policy for measuring credit potential except under special circumstances where there may be utilities or other site constraints. Modify the width measurements adjacent to DJ7, DJ6, DJ4, DJ5, DJ3 and DJ2 to be perpendicular and landward, not shown as a radius from the Origin points. Therefore, this will result in an increase in ft2 on Ephemeral channels and a decrease in ft2 along the I/P streams where it applies. Adjust Mit Plan text, Figures and corresponding Tables (including Project Credit Table) to reflect this change throughout the Plan. Measurements have been adjusted accordingly. Note that these changes initially resulted in ephemeral channel riparian buffer square feet to exceed the 25% rule. Therefore, to resolve the issue, RES allocated more 0-100 ft riparian buffer square feet to nutrient offset in order to balance the ratio and satisfy the requirements. All revisions are reflected throughout the Final BPDP including document text, figures, and credit table. 18. For the Enhancement & Preservation, add "for Buffer Credits" Correct other figures where this comment applies Applicable figures have been revised. FIGURES: RIPARIAN ZONES 19. Depict the DMS easement This has been added. 20. Location of widths less than 50' Callout has been added. 21. These measurements are depicted correctly Noted. FIGURE9. MONITORING PLAN 22. Address measurement issue noted in previous Comments Figure has been updated accordingly. Please find enclosed the final BPDP submission with changes as noted above.

This project is designed to provide riparian buffer credits and nutrient offset credits for unavoidable impacts due to development within the Neuse River Basin, United States Geological Survey (USGS) 8-digit Cataloguing Unit 03020201 (Neuse 01), excluding Falls Lake Watershed (Figure 1). This Buffer and Nutrient Offset Mitigation Plan is in accordance with the Consolidated Buffer Mitigation Rule 15A NCAC 02B .0295 and Nutrient Offset Credit Trading Rule 15A NCAC 02B .0703. The Project is being codeveloped with the proposed Thunder Swamp Buffer Mitigation Project (DWR # 2021-0306v3) that is contracted with the NC Division of Mitigation Services ("DMS") and will extend riparian areas associated with the DMS project as well as incorporate additional stream features on the property. The Thunder Swamp Buffer Mitigation Project (DWR # 2021-0306v3) Mitigation Plan was approved by DWR on February 25, 2022. The approval letter is found in Appendix E. m Parcel Location The Thunder Swamp Phase II Project is within the Neuse River Basin within the 8-digit HUC 03020201, 14- digit HUC 030202011170030 and DWR Sub -basin Number 03-04-12. The Project is located in Wayne County in Mount Olive, North Carolina, just west of downtown Mount Olive off NC Highway 55 (Figure 2). To access the Project from Raleigh, take 1-40 East to US-70 East. Then take exit for NC-50/NC-55 toward Newton Grove and turn left onto NC-50 South/NC-55 East. Continue and take the third exit at the traffic circle. Continue for approximately 16 miles and take a right into the driveway adjacent to the Project, at address 680 NC-55, Mt. Olive, NC 28365. The upper reaches of the Project will be in the fields to the right. The coordinates are 35.205212' and-78.095683°. 1.2 Parcel Overview The Thunder Swamp Phase 11 project consists of a conservation easement that will total approximately 30.53 acres and is being codeveloped with the proposed Thunder Swamp Buffer Mitigation Project contracted with the NC Division of Mitigation Services ("DMS"). The Project will extend riparian areas associated with the DMS project as well as incorporate additional stream features on the property. Thunder Swamp Phase 11 is comprised of portions of the Thunder Swamp main stem and several of its unnamed tributaries. Thunder Swamp is a USGS-named stream that eventually drains to the Neuse River (Figure 3). Current land use within the Project is crop production and riparian forest (Figure 4a). Much of the Project area has been used extensively for agricultural purposes for at least 70 years (Figure 5). Currently, the Project reaches and adjacent areas are in either crop production or forest. Water quality stressors currently affecting the Project include heavily manipulated/relocated and maintained stream channels, nutrient loadings from active crop production, and lack of forested riparian buffers. Current buffer conditions demonstrate significant degradation with the loss of stabilizing vegetation because of ongoing crop production. The goal of the Project is to restore, enhance, and preserve ecological function to the existing streams and their associated riparian areas by establishing appropriate plant communities while minimizing temporal and land disturbing impacts. Buffer and surrounding riparian area improvements will filter runoff from agricultural fields, thereby reducing nutrient and sediment loads to Project channels and provide water quality benefit to the overall watershed. Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project Bank Parcel Development Package Riparian Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset 2 April 2022 The Thunder Swamp Phase II project is composed of three ephemeral stream channels: DJ4, DJ6, and DJ7; four intermittent stream channels, DJ1, DJ2, DJ3, and DJ5; and one perennial stream channel, Thunder Swamp (Figure 4a). All streams except Thunder Swamp have clearly been straightened and are incised. Four stream reaches (DJ1, DJ3, DJ5, and Thunder Swamp) were determined to be subject to the Neuse buffer protection rules ("Subject"), whereas the four other stream reaches (DJ2, DJ4, DJ6, and DJ7) are not subject to the Neuse buffer protection rules ("Non -subject"). Stream determinations were verified by the DWR during a site visit on March 241", 2021. Correspondence regarding this determination is in Appendix A. Buffer mitigation and riparian area improvement efforts along the Project streams will be accomplished through the planting, establishment, and protection of a hardwood forest community. The result will be a riparian area that functions to mitigate nutrient and sediment inputs from the surrounding uplands. This BPDP is being submitted for review under the Consolidated Buffer Mitigation Rule (15A NCAC 02B .0295) and Nutrient Offset Credit Trading Rule (15A NCAC 02B .0703). DWR staff performed a site viability assessment for buffer mitigation and nutrient offset on May 271", 2021. This correspondence is provided in Appendix A. In addition to traditional riparian restoration and enhancement, the Project will also incorporate the alternative buffer mitigation options: Restoration and Enhancement on Non -Subject Streams, as outlined in 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (o)(3); Restoration of Buffers on Ephemeral Streams, as outlined in 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (o)(7); Preservation of Buffers on Subject Streams, as outlined in 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (o)(5); and Preservation of Buffers on Non -subject Streams, as outlined in 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (o)(4). As outlined in this BPDP, any areas of riparian restoration proposed for nutrient offset credit would rely on nutrient offset credit calculations in accordance with the "NCDWR — Methodology and Calculation for determining Nutrient Reductions associated with Riparian Buffer Establishment." The Project will provide significant functional uplift to the watershed. The Project credits will be derived from restoration, enhancement, and preservation of the riparian buffer and surrounding riparian areas. The riparian buffer mitigation credits and nutrient offset credits will be produced by establishing a native forested and herbaceous riparian plant community and protecting buffers in perpetuity with a conservation easement. The new plant community will be established in conjunction with the treatment of existing exotic or undesirable plant species. For all stream channels, buffers will have a minimum width of 50 feet and a maximum of up to 200 feet from the edge of the channels. The riparian buffer mitigation areas will entail: • top of bank to 100 feet of Enhancement on a perennial stream; • 101 to 200 feet of Enhancement on a perennial stream; • top of bank to 100 feet of restoration on intermittent and perennial streams; • 101 to 200 feet of Restoration on a perennial stream; • top of bank to 100 feet of Restoration on ephemeral streams; and • top of bank to 100 feet of Preservation on intermittent and perennial, Subject streams. The nutrient offset credit areas will entail: • top of bank to 100 feet of riparian restoration on ephemeral streams; • 101 to 200 feet of riparian restoration on intermittent and perennial streams; and • 101 to 200 feet of riparian restoration on ephemeral streams. Notably, much of the proposed riparian buffer mitigation area is viable to be converted to nutrient offset credit in accordance with the Nutrient Offset Credit Trading Rule, 15A NCAC 02B .0703. Figure 6 shows Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project Bank Parcel Development Package Riparian Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset 3 April 2022 the Conceptual Design Plan for Buffer and Credit Determination Map, and Section 8 provides details of the Project credit determination on the Thunder Swamp Phase II Project. 1.2.1 Parcel Ownership The land required for the construction, management, and stewardship of this Project includes the parcel listed in Table 1. EBX is under contract to obtain the property in fee simple and will then record a conservation easement for the Project area within the property. The Mitigation Banking Conservation Easement Template for Buffer & Nutrient Offset Sites (provided by DWR with slight modifications) will be utilized to draft the site protection instrument. Once recorded, the secured easements will allow EBX to proceed with the Project development and protect the mitigation assets in perpetuity. A finalized copy of the land protection instrument will be included in Appendix B. Table 1. Parcel and Landowner Information Danny Gray Jackson and wife, Margaret 2563908684 Fee Simple Wayne Jernigan Jackson (current) Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project Bank Parcel Development Package Riparian Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset 4 April 2022 2 EXISTING CONDITIONS 2.1.1 Surface Water Classification Thunder Swamp has been assigned Class C and Nutrient Sensitive Waters (NSW). Class C waters are protected for uses such as secondary recreation, fishing, wildlife, fish consumption, aquatic life including propagation, survival and maintenance of biological integrity, and agriculture. Secondary recreation includes wading, boating, and other uses involving human body contact with water where such activities take place in an infrequent, unorganized, or incidental manner. NSW designation is intended for waters needing additional nutrient management due to being subject to excessive growth of microscopic or macroscopic vegetation (NCDWQ 2011). 2.1.2 Physiography and Soils The Project is located within the Rolling Coastal Plain Level IV ecoregion within the Southeastern Plains Level III ecoregion and is characterized by greater relief, elevation, and stream gradients compared to the Mid -Atlantic Coastal Plain to the east. This ecoregion contains both dissected irregular and smooth plains, and low to moderate gradient sandy -bottomed streams that branch from broad interstream divides with steep to moderately gentle side slopes. The ecoregion also contains better drained soils and a slightly cooler and shorter growing season than the Mid -Atlantic Coastal Plain; however, it is still a productive agricultural region with typical crops of corn, soybeans, tobacco, cotton, sweet potatoes, peanuts, and wheat (Griffith et al., 2002). The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) County Soil Mapping depicts five soil series across the Project (Figure 7). All soils on -site are formed in loamy or loamy and sandy marine deposits. Thunder Swamp is associated with a Bibb sandy loam series. Rains sandy loam is mapped adjacent to the Bibb sandy loam and to the north and it is bisected by Lynchburg sandy loam, Craven sandy loam, and Wagram loamy sand. Rains sandy loam and Bibb sandy loam are considered hydric by the NRCS, while Lynchburg sandy loam and Wagram sandy loam have minor hydric inclusions. The specific soil map units are detailed in Table 2. Table 2. Project Mapped Soil Series Bb Bibb sandy loam 90% Poorly drained A/D Floodplains CrC2 Craven sandy loam, 6 to 10 0% Moderately well D Ridges percent slopes, eroded (Gritney) drained L Lynchburg sandy loam, 0 to 2 8% Somewhat poorly B/D Marine terraces y percent slopes drained Ra Rains sandy loam, 0 to 2 percent 90% Poorly drained A/D Flats on marine slopes terraces WaB Wagram loamy sand, 0 to 6 5% Well drained A Ridges percent slopes 2.1.3 Wetlands The Thunder Swamp floodplain contains wetland forest and swamp; however, the jurisdictional boundaries are not confirmed since this Project will not require a Jurisdictional Determination. The US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) National Wetland Inventory Map (NWI) has mapped this wetland and classified it as palustrine forested broad-leaved deciduous, seasonally flooded (PF01 C) (Figure 4b). Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project Bank Parcel Development Package Riparian Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset 5 April 2022 2.1.4 Landscape Communities A. Existing Vegetation Communities Current land use around the Project is primarily composed of row crops and forest. The row crop fields directly abut most of the banks of Project streams, and the current crop in production is sweet potatoes. However, small, disturbed areas of trees that are reminiscent of mixed-mesic hardwood forest (Coastal Plain subtype) exist along some of the stream banks including sweet gum (Liquidambor styrocifluo), red maple (Ater rubrum), water oak (Quercus nigra), willow oak (Quercus phellos), tulip poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera), and sassafras (Sassafras albidum). Invasive species were noted in these areas and include mostly Chinese privet (Ligustrum sinense), some Chinaberry (Melia ozedarach), and limited kudzu (Pueraria montana). As for the forested Thunder Swamp floodplain, the natural community has likely been disturbed by cyclical beaver activity, as the community does not appear to be a climax forest, and it is not evident through aerial imagery that the area has been cleared or logged in at least many decades. However, the footprints of historic beaver impoundments are evident in the floodplain where there is significant lack of trees with some areas almost devoid of any trees. With that said, the greater community type resembles a disturbed Coastal Plain small stream swamp and includes trees and saplings such as swamp tupelo (Nysso biflora), red maple, water oak, willow oak, black willow (Salix nigra), and silky dogwood (Corpus amomum), while the shrub stratum is dominated by Chinese privet with some buttonbush (Cepholonthus occidentalis) present. The herbaceous layer includes Pennsylvania smartweed (Polygonum pennsylvanicum), Nepalese browntop (Microstegium vimineum), tearthumb (Polygonum sagittatum), false nettle (Boehmeria cylindrica), and swamp rosemallow (Hibiscus grandiflorus). As noted in this species list, invasive species include Chinese privet and Nepalese browntop, with dense Chinese privet in localized areas. B. Riparian Vegetation In general, the Project reaches do not function to their full potential. Current conditions demonstrate significant habitat and water quality degradation with a loss of stabilizing vegetation because of impacts from ongoing crop production. Throughout the Project there are also some invasive plant species. DJ1 runs through crop field and then dissipates upslope from the forested Thunder Swamp floodplain. Throughout the crop fields, the reach lacks a forested riparian buffer, barring a few individual mature trees along the bank at the upstream extent. Some understory native and invasive species are also present in this area around the base of the trees. Generally, the stream banks of DJ1 contain tall, herbaceous vegetation and little to no woody vegetation. The current crop in production is sweet potatoes. At the base of DJ1 where the reach dissipates, there is a small area of black willow (Salixnigra) trees. DJ3 is a very short reach that has almost no riparian buffer barring a few mature trees along the banks near its confluence with DJ1. The majority of DJ3 is captured in the easement for the DMS full -delivery project and only a small portion is included in the bank. This reach also includes one or more significant erosional features along the banks where mass wasting has occurred, thus compromising the immediate riparian area. DJ2, like DJ1, runs through crop field and then enters the Thunder Swamp floodplain. The left bank of DJ2 abuts crop fields and the riparian buffer condition is absent and mostly devoid of trees. There is a small stand of trees off the right bank that contains mature hardwoods and some Chinese privet. Generally, stream banks contain herbaceous vegetation and little to no woody vegetation, and the current in production is sweet potatoes. As the reach enters the Thunder Swamp floodplain, the riparian area becomes sufficiently buffered through mature forest, although Chinese privet is prevalent. Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project Bank Parcel Development Package Riparian Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset 6 April 2022 DJ4 is the ephemeral reach above DJ5 and runs through crop field. Throughout the crop fields, the reach lacks a riparian buffer, barring a few mature trees along the bank at the upstream extent. Some understory native and invasive species are also present in this area around the base of the trees. Generally, the stream banks of DJ4 contain tall, herbaceous vegetation and little to no woody vegetation. The current crop is sweet potatoes. A portion of this reach parallels the edge of the Project parcel boundary, which is to be utilized as an access corridor for the parcel. Therefore, some of the riparian area here will be excluded from riparian restoration. DJ5 is directly downstream of DJ4 and runs through crop field and then enters the Thunder Swamp floodplain. DJ5 is surrounded by crop fields and the riparian buffer condition is absent and mostly devoid of trees. Generally, stream banks contain weedy, herbaceous vegetation and little to no woody vegetation, and the current crop is sweet potatoes. As the reach enters the Thunder Swamp floodplain, the riparian area becomes sufficiently buffered through mature forest, although Chinese privet is prevalent. DJ6 is the ephemeral reach upstream of DJ3 and is surrounded by crop fields on all sides. There is currently no riparian buffer present on DJ6. DJ7 is the ephemeral reach upstream of DJ2 and is surrounded by crop fields on all sides. There is currently no riparian buffer present on DJ7. Part of DJ7 and all of DJ2 are captured in the easement for the DMS full - delivery project. Thunder Swamp contains a wide, mostly forested floodplain with dense canopy coverage in most areas. However, some areas have been previously disturbed by beaver activity. The beaver activity led to an increase in standing water for an extended period within impoundment areas, causing these areas to be sparsely covered by trees. In these areas, the riparian areas along the banks contain herbaceous vegetation with little to no woody vegetation as well as a few mature swamp tupelo trees. There are also invasive species including Chinese privet and Nepalese brown top throughout this area. The current land -use at the time of writing this BPDP has remained unchanged since the site viability assessment for buffer mitigation and nutrient offset, conducted by DWR on May 271", 2021.

According to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service's (USFWS) Information for Planning and Consultation (IPAC) database review tool (accessed March 1", 2021) and the self -certification process conducted by RES and submitted to the USFWS on April 1st, 2021, the list of threatened or endangered species includes the Red -cockaded woodpecker (Picoides borealis). Two additional species on the list submitted to USFWS are proposed for listing, the Neuse River Waterdog (Necturus lewisi) and the Carolina Madtom (Noturus Furiosus). The Thunder Swamp Phase II Project does not contain any suitable habitat for the Red -cockaded woodpecker, the Neuse River Waterdog, nor the Carolina Madtom. A self -certification letter was sent to USFWS (on April 1st, 2021). No response was received by USFWS. This consultation was conducted as part of the Categorical Exclusion process for the DMS Thunder Swamp project and supporting documentation and correspondence can be found in Appendix C. The Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act requires consultation with state fish and wildlife agencies when "waters of any stream or other body of water are proposed or authorized, permitted or licensed to be impounded, diverted ... or otherwise controlled or modified. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC) was consulted during the Categorical Exclusion process and the NCWRC did not comment on any state or federally listed species; however, they did recommend the use of biodegradable and wildlife -friendly sediment and erosion control devices and to treat invasive species as part of the Project. Documentation is included in Appendix C. 3.2 Cultural Resources A review of North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) GIS Web Service (accessed March 1" 2021) database did not reveal any registered occurrences within the Project area. RES consulted with the SHPO during the Categorical Exclusion process and the SHPO had "conducted a review of the project and are aware of no historic resources which would be affected by the project." Documentation is included in Appendix C. 3.3 Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)/ Hydrologic Trespass The southern portion of the Project, including the Thunder Swamp floodplain, is within a mapped FEMA Regulatory Floodway and 100-year floodplain (Zone AE) (Figure 4b). However, no grading or earthwork is proposed within this area, and the only activity to be conducted is planting trees. Therefore, no FEMA or floodplain permitting will be required. Also, adjacent land use will not be affected by the proposed design and no detrimental impacts are expected. 3.4 Clean Water Act - Section 401/404 This project will not impact/fill any Waters of the US; therefore, there will be no 401/404 permit required. 3.5 Additional Environmental Considerations A limited Phase I Environmental Site Assessment was completed for the Parcel by acquiring an Environmental Date Resources (EDR) report in February 2021. The report can be found in Appendix D. Neither the target property nor the adjacent properties were listed in any of the Federal, State, or Tribal environmental databases searched by EDR. There are no known or potentially hazardous waste sites identified within or immediately adjacent to the project area. Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project Bank Parcel Development Package Riparian Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset 12 April 2022 4 RIPARIAN RESTORATION, ENHANCEMENT, AND PRESERVATION IMPLEMENTATION PLAN Riparian restoration, enhancement, and preservation areas adjacent to streams are shown in Figure 6 and mitigation types were approved in the DWR Buffer Viability letter dated July 131", 2021 (Appendix A). 4.1 Parcel Preparation Preparation at the Project will involve spraying crops and exotic invasive species, applying soil amendments, seeding native plants, and planting trees. Soil amendments will be provided across the entire planted area based on the results of soil fertility tests. The soil fertility tests will be based on soil samples collected within proposed riparian restoration areas across the site. A seed mix will be chosen to maximize successful herbaceous growth in all riparian areas while also incorporating valuable pollinator species. All riparian planting areas will be seeded using a no -till drill prior to tree planting. Temporary and permanent riparian seeding, bare root plantings, and live stakes shall be planted according to the planting plan (Section 4.3). The limits of the riparian restoration areas will be surveyed post -planting and seeding, and the information will be provided in the As -Built report and plat. 4.2 Methods Riparian restoration, enhancement, and preservation along streams will be implemented to generate nutrient offset credits and riparian buffer credits. All applicable areas were determined by the site viability assessment by DWR (Appendix A). 4.2.1 Riparian Restoration Activities The Project will provide riparian buffer restoration and nutrient offset in accordance with the Consolidated Buffer Mitigation Rules 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (n), 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (o)(3) and (7), and the Nutrient Offset Credit Trading Rule 15A NCAC 02B .0703. Restoration and nutrient offset activities will include the planting of bare root trees as described in Section 4.3. These restoration activities will begin from the tops of the stream banks and extend a minimum of 30 feet from the stream outward to a maximum of 200 feet perpendicular to the stream channel. Notably, there is a small portion of riparian restoration along reach DJ4 that is greater than 30 feet but less than 50 wide and therefore is not viable for nutrient offset credit. Restoration will occur where cropland is currently present or in the non -forested area along Thunder Swamp. Furthermore, restoration will entail the permanent protection of the riparian area from cutting, clearing, filling, grading, and similar activities that would affect the functioning of the buffer through a conservation easement that will have clearly visible easement markers and signs (see Section 4.4 for further description of the easement boundaries). All reaches within the Project will include riparian buffer restoration and/or nutrient offset (Figure 6). 4.2.2 Riparian Enhancement Activities Enhancement will take place in the partially forested area along Thunder Swamp where existing tree canopy and diversity is inadequate and in accordance with Consolidated Buffer Mitigation Rule 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (n) and the DWR site viability assessment (Appendix A). Enhancement activities will include the planting of bare root trees as described in Section 4.3. These enhancement activities will begin from the top of the stream bank and extend a minimum of 30 feet from the stream outward to a maximum of 200 feet perpendicular to the stream channel. Furthermore, enhancement will entail the permanent protection of the riparian area from cutting, clearing, filling, grading, and similar activities that would affect the functioning of the buffer through a conservation easement that will have clearly visible easement markers and signs. Thunder Swamp is the only reach that will include enhancement (Figure 6). Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project Bank Parcel Development Package Riparian Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset 13 April 2022 4.2.3 Riparian Preservation Activities Preservation will take place in the forested areas within the Project where existing tree growth was determined adequate, and in accordance with the alternative mitigation option of Consolidated Buffer Mitigation Rules 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (o)(4) and (5) and the DWR site viability assessment (Appendix A). In addition, preservation activities will include treating exotic invasive species, specifically Chinese privet. Furthermore, preservation will entail the permanent protection of the riparian area from cutting, clearing, filling, grading, and similar activities that would affect the functioning of the buffer through a conservation easement that will have clearly visible easement markers and signs. Thunder Swamp, DJ2, and DJ5 will include preservation (Figure 6). 4.2.4 Other Activities Other activities involved with the Project include minor bank stabilization efforts, including grading and live staking where stream bank stability is compromised, such as erosional rills, sink holes, and gullies. Also, some stream reaches contain dense thickets of greenbriers and grape vines along their banks that have the potential to become a nuisance; therefore, some of these areas may be thinned and/or removed mechanically if there is a threat to planted vegetation. As mentioned earlier, this Project will be codeveloped with a DMS buffer mitigation project that will be nested within the boundary of this Project and includes some of the same features as this Project. Therefore, riparian planting and site preparation activities will extend beyond the limits of this Project's boundaries to include the limits of the DMS full -delivery project. 4.3 Planting Plan All riparian restoration and enhancement areas will be planted from top of bank back at least 30 feet from streams with bare root tree seedlings on a nine by six-foot spacing to achieve an initial density of approximately 800 trees per acre. Planting will occur in all areas proposed for riparian buffer restoration, enhancement, and nutrient offset and will meet the performance standards outlined in the Rule 15A NCAC 02B .0295. This includes treating invasive species and planting at least four species of native hardwood bare root trees. To ensure tree diversity across the Project area, bare root trees will be well mixed before planting. For the majority of the site, Mixed-Mesic Hardwood Forest (Coastal Plain subtype) (Schafale, 2012) will be the target community type and will be used for all areas of existing crop field and field margins within the Project. There will be a separate planting zone for the Thunder Swamp floodplain, which is a periodically inundated wetland. The target community for this wetland area will be Coastal Plain Small Stream Swamp. These community compositions are highly diverse and are suitable given the Project's soil and landscape characteristics and will provide water quality and ecological benefits. Ultimately, there will be two planting zones and are designated as "Upland Zone" and "Wetland Zone." Notably, although bald cypress (Taxodium distichum) is technically considered a softwood tree, it is included in the Wetland Zone planting plan due to the significant wetness of this zone and the species' proven success at other stream, wetland, and buffer mitigation projects with similar site characteristics in the Neuse 01 service area. The initial planting of bare root trees will occur before Spring 2022. The list of bare root tree species to be planted and their percentage of total species composition per zone can be found in Table 3. Please note that the real compositions of planted trees may differ from this proposed list due to availability; however, the procured trees will ideally be comprised of species from the list. With that said, the minimum number of unique species to be planted in each planting zone across the Project will be seven. Wherever possible, mature vegetation will be preserved and incorporated into the buffer. Some areas adjacent to the forested areas may require maintenance due to the rapid regeneration of some species, such as red Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project Bank Parcel Development Package Riparian Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset 14 April 2022 maple (Ater rubrum) and sweetgum (Liquidambor styrocif(uo). The live stake plantings mentioned above in Section 4.2.4 will consist of black willow (Solix nigra) and silky dogwood (Corpus amomum). Planting areas covering existing agricultural areas will also be seeded with an herbaceous seed mix to provide rapid herbaceous cover and promote immediate buffer effectiveness as well as habitat for pollinators and other wildlife. The seed blend will contain both temporary and permanent seed and will include taproot species. See Table 4 for the proposed herbaceous seed mix composition. The seed will be sown utilizing a no -till drill. Table 3.

Boundaries may be identified by marker, bollard, post, tree -blazing, or other means as allowed by Project conditions and/or conservation easement. Boundaries will be clearly marked with signs identifying the property as a mitigation project and will include the name of the long-term steward and a contact number. These boundary markers will be installed prior to the DWR as -built site visit in order to satisfy the Task 2 milestone. Boundary markers disturbed, damaged, or destroyed will be repaired and/or replaced on an as needed basis. The easement boundary will be checked annually as part of monitoring activities and the conditions as well as any maintenance performed will be reported in the annual monitoring reports to DWR. This Project will be co -developed with a DMS full -delivery buffer mitigation project as mentioned throughout this document and shown in figures. There will be a DMS conservation easement nested within the boundaries of this Project that will also be marked appropriately. Additionally, an internal crossing to provide North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ) Stewardship legal and specific access to the DMS full -delivery buffer mitigation project will be included within the bank Easement boundaries. The internal crossing will be passive and will not include an additional culvert or mechanical access and the restrictions within the conservation easement will be upheld. This area will be clearly identified in the field as described above and as depicted in Figure 6 and Figure 9. 4.5 Post -Establishment Notification Within 30 calendar days after completing the establishment of the buffer mitigation and nutrient offset areas, DWR will be notified, in writing, that all buffer mitigation and nutrient offset activities have been completed. This will be in accordance with the RES 2022 Phase II UMBI. 5 MONITORING PLAN 5.1 Monitoring Protocol and Performance Standards Annual vegetation monitoring and visual assessments will be conducted. Riparian vegetation monitoring where riparian buffer mitigation and nutrient offset credits are being generated will be based on the "Carolina Vegetation Survey -Ecosystem Enhancement Program Protocol for Recording Vegetation: Level 1-2 Plot Sampling Only Version 4.2". Annual vegetation monitoring will occur each year for a minimum of five years and will be conducted during the fall season with the first year occurring at least six months from Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project Bank Parcel Development Package Riparian Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset 16 April 2022 initial planting. Monitoring plots will be installed a minimum of 100 meters squared in size and will cover at least two percent of the planted mitigation area. The planted area is 21.38 acres, with 2.40 acres within the Wetland Zone and 18.98 acres within the Upland Zone. There will be 16 vegetation plots measuring performance standards in all riparian restoration areas. Two of these vegetation plots will be installed in the Wetland Zone and 14 will be installed in the Upland Zone. These plots will be randomly placed throughout the planted riparian areas and will be representative of the riparian communities as well as both the nutrient offset credit areas and riparian buffer credit areas (Figure 9). The following data will be recorded for all trees in the plots: species, height, planting date (or volunteer), and grid location. All stems in plots will be flagged with flagging tape. The measures of vegetative success for the Project will be the survival of at least four native hardwood tree species, where no one species is greater than 50 percent of stems, at a density of at least 260 stems per acre at the end of Year 5. Native volunteer species may be included to meet the performance standards upon written approval by DWR. Invasive and noxious species will be monitored and treated so that none become dominant or alter the desired community structure of the site. Photos will be taken at each vegetation plot each monitoring year and provided in the annual reports. Visual inspections and photos will be taken to ensure that applicable areas are being maintained and compliant. A visual assessment of the conservation easement will also be performed each year to confirm: • easement markers are in good condition throughout the site; • no encroachment has occurred; • no invasive species occur in areas where invasive species were treated; • beaver activity has not adversely affected growth or establishment of planted trees; • diffuse flow is being maintained in the conservation easement areas; and • there has not been any cutting, clearing, filling, grading, or similar activities that would negatively affect the functioning of the buffer. A summary of project monitoring and maintenance activities can be found in Table 5. Table 5. Summary of Project Monitoring and Maintenance Activities Vegetation shall be maintained to ensure the health and vigor of the targeted plant community. Routine vegetation maintenance and repair activities may include supplemental planting, pruning, mulching, and fertilizing. Exotic Annual invasive plant species shall be treated by mechanical and/or chemical Vegetation vegetation methods. Any vegetation requiring herbicide application will be performed in monitoring accordance with NC Department of Agriculture (NCDA) rules and regulations. Vegetation maintenance activities will be documented and reported in annual monitoring reports. Vegetation maintenance will continue through the monitoring period. Invasive and noxious species will be monitored and treated so that none Invasive and Visual become dominant or alter the desired community structure of the Project. Nuisance Vegetation Assessment Locations of invasive and nuisance vegetation will be mapped and reported in the monitoring report. Routine site visits and monitoring will be used to determine if beaver Visual Beaver management is needed. If beaver activity poses a threat to vegetative success, Assessment EBX will trap beavers and remove impoundments as needed. All beaver manaaement activities will be documented and included in annual monitorina Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project Bank Parcel Development Package Riparian Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset 17 April 2022 reports. Beaver monitoring and management will continue through the monitoring period. Project boundaries shall be identified in the field to ensure clear distinction between the mitigation project and adjacent properties. Boundaries will be marked with signs identifying the property as a mitigation project and will Visual include the name of the long-term steward and a contact number. Boundaries Project Boundary may be identified by fence, marker, bollard, post, tree -blazing, or other means Assessment as allowed by Project conditions and/or conservation easement. Boundary markers disturbed, damaged, or destroyed will be repaired and/or replaced on an as -needed basis. Easement monitoring and staking/ signage maintenance will continue in perpetuity as a stewardship activity. 5.2 Adaptive Management Plan and Project Maintenance Adaptive measures will be developed, or appropriate remedial actions taken if the site, or a specific component of the site, fails to achieve the defined success criteria. Remedial actions will be designed to achieve the success criteria specified in this Plan, and will include identification of the causes of failure, remedial design approach, work schedule, and monitoring criteria that will consider physical and climatic conditions. Initial plant maintenance may include a one-time mowing, prior to initial planting to remove undesirable species. If mowing is deemed necessary by EBX during the monitoring period, EBX must first receive approval by DWR prior to any mowing activities to ensure that no buffer violations will be committed. Failure to receive approval to mow within the Neuse River buffer, as defined in 15A NCAC 02B .0714 by DWR, could result in Neuse River buffer violations and violations of the conservation easement. If necessary, EBX will develop a species -specific control plan. Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project Bank Parcel Development Package Riparian Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset 18 April 2022 6 LONG TERM MANAGEMENT PLAN The long term stewardship plan for the site entails that the Project would be transferred to an approved conservation easement holder. EBX intends to assign this conservation easement to the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ) Stewardship program. The NCDEQ Stewardship program currently holds conservation easements for many North Carolina Division of Mitigation Service projects (like the paired project for Thunder Swamp Phase II, "Thunder Swamp Buffer Mitigation Project (DWR # 2021-0306v3)") and is working to get approved as a conservation easement holder for DWR. The adjacent nature of these projects makes NCDEQ a good fit to manage both easements. In the unexpected situation that they are not approved, EBX will transfer the conservation easement to another approved easement holder. EBX is the fee simple owner of the parcel on which the Project is located. Therefore, to disincentivize long-term holding of the easement by an EBX-affiliated company for longer than is minimally necessary, EBX commits to ensure that the assignment is completed prior to the end of the Monitoring Year 2 in accordance with the RES 2022 Phase II UMBI. Additionally, EBX proposes a Task 5 for the assignment of the easement to the approved holder. This task can be completed at any time leading up to the end of Monitoring Year 2. It must be completed before any future credits are released as shown in Table 7. Once approved, NCDEQ Stewardship Program would serve as the conservation easement holder and entity responsible for long term stewardship of the Project. This party would conduct periodic inspection of the Project to ensure that restrictions required in the conservation easement are upheld. The NCDEQ Stewardship Program is developing an endowment system within the non -reverting, interest -bearing Conservation Lands Conservation Fund Account. The use of funds from the Endowment Account will be governed by North Carolina General Statute GS 113A-232(d)(3). Interest gained by the endowment fund may be used for the purpose of stewardship, monitoring, stewardship administration, and land transaction costs, if applicable. An engagement letter is being prepared; however, as it goes through state approval processes, email correspondence to document the NCDEQ Stewardship Program's intent to work together with EBX and DWR is included in Appendix C. The Stewardship Program will periodically install signage to identify boundary markings as needed. Any livestock or associated fencing or permanent crossings will be the responsibility of the owner of the underlying fee to maintain. 7 FINANCIAL ASSURANCE The Sponsor will provide financial assurances in the form of Performance Bonds sufficient to assure one hundred percent (100%) completion of all mitigation work, required reporting and monitoring, and any remedial work required. Financial assurances will be payable at the direction of the DWR to its designee or to a standby trust. Financial assurances structured to provide funds to the DWR in the event of default by the Bank Sponsor are not acceptable. The initial performance bond will be in the amount of at least $150,000 and shall be able to cover 100% of the costs associated with construction of the riparian restoration areas. The monitoring bond shall be in the amount of at least $100,000 and shall be able to cover 100% of the costs associated with the monitoring and maintenance of the riparian restoration areas for five years. Performance bonds for monitoring shall be renewed to cover the next years 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. Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project Bank Parcel Development Package Riparian Buffer Mitigation and Nutrient Offset 19 April 2022 8 PROJECT'S CREDIT POTENTIAL This Project has the potential to generate up to 378,316.131 ft' riparian buffer mitigation credits and provide 479,704 ft' (25,031.596 Ibs of N) of nutrient offset credits within a 30.53-acre conservation easement as depicted in Figure 6. These will be derived from riparian restoration, enhancement, and preservation. The credits generated will service the Neuse 01 watershed, excluding the Falls Lake Watershed. Also, some of these proposed buffer mitigation credits, where viable, can be converted to nutrient offset credit in accordance with the Nutrient Offset Credit Trading Rule, 15A NCAC 02B .0703. In accordance with the UMBI, any credit conversions must be calculated using the guidance provided in the Clarified Procedures for Calculating Buffer Mitigation Credits and Nutrient Offset Credits letter issued by the DWR. Upon receiving written approval by the NCDWR, buffer restoration credits, within the 0-100-foot zone, (294,613 ft') along DJ3, DJ4, DJ5, and DJ7 can be converted to nutrient offset credit, generating up to 15,373.300 Ibs of N. The total potential buffer mitigation and nutrient offset credits that the Thunder Swamp Phase II Mitigation Project will generate were calculated using the DWR "Project Credit Table Template (Updated October 2020)" and are presented in Table 6. Furthermore, Figure 8 depicts riparian zones of 50, 100, and 200 feet from stream top of banks to demonstrate width requirements for crediting. There will be three credit ledgers for the project: Buffer Restoration/Enhancement, Buffer Preservation, and Nitrogen.

This determination corrects the stream segment DJ2 which was wrongly marked as subject. The feature DJ2 is not subject because it's not located on the two maps identified. The Division of Water Resources has determined that the streams listed as "subject" above and included on the attached map have been located on the most recent published (1974) N RCS Soil Survey of Wayne County, North Carolina and/or the most recent copy of the Mt. Olive USGS Topographic map at a 1:24,000 scale and evaluated for applicability to the Neuse Riparian Buffer Rules. For each stream that is checked "Not Subject" it has been determined to not be at least intermittent, not present on the property or not represented on the most recent published (1974) NRCS Soil Survey of Wayne County, North Carolina and/or the most recent copy of the Mt.

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 3b- Existing Conditions" (Figure 3b) prepared by EBX. The proposed easement boundary in Figure 3b, includes all riparian areas intended to be proposed as part of a mitigation site. On May 27, 2021, Ms. Merritt performed a site assessment of the subject site. Staff with EBX 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.

It is likely that vegetation planted along this reach will be at high risk of low performance. 'Subjectivity calls for the features were determined by DWR in correspondence dated April 30, 2021 (D)VR# 2021-0020) using the 1:24,000 scale quadrangle topographic map prepared by USGS and the most recent printed version of the soil survey map prepared by the NRCS . 2The area of preservation credit within a buffer mitigation site shall comprise of no more than 25 percent (25%) of the total area of buffer mitigation per 15A NCAC 0295 (o)(5) and 15A NCAC 0295 (o)(4). 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. 'The 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 made using a proposed easement boundary showing proposed mitigation areas shown in Figure 3b. The map representing the proposal for the site is attached to this letter and initialed by Ms. Merritt on July 13, 2021. Substantial changes to the proposed easement boundary as well as any site constraints identified in the table above, 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 Page 3 of 4 DocuSign Envelope ID: 66FAA3BB-6FEC-48OD-AOBA-F746DA3F43C3 Thunder Swamp Site EBX July 13, 2021 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. This viability assessment will expire on July 13, 2023 or upon approval of a mitigation plan by the DWR, whichever comes first. This letter should be provided in any nutrient offset, buffer, stream or wetland mitigation plan for this Site.

The engagement letter has been drafted but needs to be run up my chain of command for approval. I plan to work on that next week. Katie and I had a good conversation this morning about the Stewardship Program status and the CE template. Please check -in with Katie on her position on the DEQ Stewardship Program holding these easements. We are going to get to work on the CE revisions but I will forewarn you this will probably take 45-60 days for Stewardship and DWR to agree on revisions. After that the revised CE will need to be approved by the Attorney General's Office (this is standard for all state held easements). I can't really give you a timeline on AG approval. I hope this helps with your project scheduling. Enjoy the snowy weekend. North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources State Historic Preservation Office Ramona M.

We have reviewed the submittal and offer the following comments. We have conducted a review of the project and are aware of no historic resources which would be affected by the project. Therefore, we have no comment on the project as proposed. 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.reviewgncdcr.gov.

Dear Mr. Hidlay, Biologists with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC) have reviewed the proposed project description. Comments are provided in accordance with certain provisions of the Clean Water Act of 1977 (as amended), Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act (48 Stat. 401, as amended; 16 U.S.C. 661-667e) and North Carolina General Statutes (G.S. 113-131 et seq.). Contracted by the NC Division of Mitigation Resources, Resource Environmental Solutions has developed the Thunder Swamp Buffer Mitigation Project. The 16.74-acre conservation easement site will restore and preserve riparian buffer. Land use within and surrounding the project area is comprised of row crop production and mature forests. The project area is located along NC Highway 55, southwest of its intersection with West Main Street, west of Mt Olive. The project area drains to Thunder Swamp in the Neuse River basin. Stream restoration projects often improve water quality and aquatic habitat. Establishing native, forested buffers in riparian areas will improve both aquatic and terrestrial habitats and provide a travel corridor for wildlife species. In addition to stringent best management practices for erosion and sediment control during construction, the NCWRC recommends the use of biodegradable and wildlife -friendly sediment and erosion control devices. Silt fencing, fiber rolls and/or other products should have loose -weave netting that is made of natural fiber materials with movable joints between the vertical and horizontal twines. Silt fencing and similar products that have been reinforced with plastic or metal mesh should be avoided as they impede the movement of terrestrial wildlife species. Excessive silt and sediment loads can have detrimental effects on aquatic resources including destruction of spawning habitat, suffocation of eggs and clogging of gills. Any invasive plant species found onsite should be removed and destroyed. Mailing Address: N.C.

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 03/01/2021 Event Code: 04EN2000-2021-E-01675 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/migratoDLbirds/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.

Reid Wilson, Secretary Walker Clark Director, Division of Land and Water5tewwdship NCNHDE-14090 The North Carolina Natural Heritage Program (NCNHP) appreciates the opportunity to provide information about natural heritage resources for the project referenced above. Based on the project area mapped with your request, a query of the NCNHP database indicates that there are no records for rare species, important natural communities, natural areas, and/or conservation/managed areas within the proposed project boundary. Please note that although there may be no documentation of natural heritage elements within the project boundary, it does not imply or confirm their absence; the area may not have been surveyed. The results of this query should not be substituted for field surveys where suitable habitat exists. In the event that rare species are found within the project area, please contact the NCNHP so that we may update our records. 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 found within the project area or is 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.

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. TC6372145.2s 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.
