Salisbury Street, Raleigh, NC 27620 RE: DWR Draft BPDP Comments Little River - Weaver Mitigation Bank Parcel (DWR # 2020-1941 v2) Johnston County, NC Dear Ms. Merritt: Wildlands Engineering, Inc. (Wildlands) has reviewed the Division of Water Resources (DWR) comments dated March 23, 2022, for the Draft Bank Parcel Development Plan (BPDP) for the Little River - Weaver Mitigation Bank Parcel. The DWR comments are listed below in bold, while Wildlands responses are noted in italics lettering. 1. Cover Page - DWR ID # is 2020-1941v2. The correction has been mode. 2. Table of Contents - The "Project Credit Table" should be all one Table, not split into Table 8 and Table 9. Modify the table to be on one page and referred to as only Table 8. The correction has been mode. Please note the Project Credit Table is now Table 9. 3. Figures - Change the title to Figure 7 (See Comments on Figure). The correction has been mode. Figure 7 is now called Riparian Buffer and Nutrient Offset Mitigation Credits and Concept Mop. 4. Section 1.0 a. Edit section 1.0 to speak to the Umbrella Mitigation Banking Instrument (not the MBI) since we discussed combining this site into the Cox Pond and O'Berry UMBI? The correction has been mode. b. "Parcel" should be used throughout the BPDP to represent the bank site. However, "Project" and "parcel" are used and thus becomes confusing what is referred to. The MBI refers to the site as a "Bank Parcel", therefor "Parcel" or "Bank Parcel" should be used instead of "Project". Correct errors accordingly. This correction has been mode to "Parcel" throughout the document. c. Need to include the effective date of Rule .0703 as well. Be sure to say "Proposed UMBI" so that it is known that the UMBI has not been signed into effect yet when it goes on Public Notice. This correction has been mode. 5. Section 1.1— a. Insert text "By discontinuing agricultural practices and". The correction has been mode. b. Insert text "it". The correction has been mode.

The correction has been made. b. Insert text "the newly". The correction has been made. 7. Section 2.2 — a. It does not state that there are forested areas along UT1, however UT1 is shown on the Credit Table as having Preservation areas. I did not see the Preservation Areas shown on the supporting figures, nor was it mentioned in the Viability Letter. Explain and provide supporting documentation if Preservation is supposed to be included in UT1. There is a small area (approximately 414 ft2) of preservation at the downstream section of UT1. This section of report text has been updated to include mention of the small, forested area where UT1 enters the woods. A callout has been added on Figure 7 and Figure 8 to identify this area. Photos have been included in the appendix to support the mitigation type. b. Change Table 2 title from "Buffer" to "Bank Parcel Attributes" or "Parcel' depending on what was decided for Section 1.0. The correction has been made. c. It is preferred to only show the 8-digit HUC since that is what defines the service area for the credits generated in this table. The correction has been made to the 8-digit HUC. 8. Section 2.4 a. The viability letter cites "Non -subject" streams, not "Subject" streams and refers to (o)(4) in the rule, not (o)(5). Please correct these errors. The correction has been made. b. Indicate what feature this alternative mitigation is being proposed. I am unsure whether it should just be UT2 or also UT1 based on conflicting information provided in the BPDP between Text and supporting figures. Explain. The preservation on non -subject streams is being proposed on UT1 and UT2. Figure 7 has been edited to make the preservation areas more clear and photographic documentation has been added to the appendix for the proposed preservation areas. c. Indicate what feature this alternative mitigation is being proposed. The correction has been made to clarify that restoration on ditches being requested is on Ditch B only. d. Add another bullet here to explain how the ditch is meeting the rest of the criteria in item (o) regarding perpetual protection of the ditch, no maintenance, how it meets the connectivity to int stream, etc. and then reference Figure 3 since that is where the easement line is shown. The following bullet points were added to this section. • The ditch is directly connected with and draining towards an intermittent or perennial stream (See Figure 3 for Ditch 8 connection with UT1). The ditch is contiguous with the rest of the mitigation site protected under a perpetual conservation easement (See Figures 3 and 7 for easement boundary). The conservation easement does not allow for any alteration of the drainage, including Wildlands Engineering, Inc. • phone 704-332-7754 • fax 704-332-3306 • 1430 S. Mint Street, # 104 • Charlotte, NC 28203 ktww WILDLANDS ENGINEERING within the internal crossing; therefore, the hydrologic connection between Ditch B and UT1 is unaffected by the internal crossing. 9. Section 4.0 - Figure 7 illustrates the "Buffer Credit map". Do you need another map that represents the overall "conceptual design for the Parcel", Also note, Figure 7 needs a different title to adequately represent the credits generated by the Parcel. We believe it is helpful to portray oll of the information included in Figure 7 on o single figure. The title of Figure 7 has been changed to Riparian Buffer and Nutrient Offset Mitigation Credits and Concept Mop. 10. Section 4.1 a. Another area of the BPDP where UT1 is not cited as having forested areas. Explain. Report text has been edited to clarify that o forested area is present along lower UT1. See response pertaining to Section 2.2, comment o. b. Why is ripping not being proposed? Usually, long-term agricultural uses result in compacted soils, making it difficult for trees to grow without ripping the soils. Explain. Text has been added to explain that while soil physical properties within the Parcel hove been affected by agriculture, compaction is not of o severity that would jeopardize the success of the project. Mechanical planting, chisel plowing, or ripping may be implemented, os available, to further improve soil conditions. c. Insert text "with a conservation easement along with the rest of the Parcel". The correction has been mode. 11. Section 4.2 a. Need more details in this section, including: specific minimum and maximum widths on feature types as well as a table that includes species intended to be part of the temporary and permanent seed mix. Details regarding minimum and maximum widths of riparian restoration areas for buffer credit and nutrient offset credit os well os riparian preservation areas hove been added. An example list of species used for herbaceous cover has been provided. b. Despite citing that planted areas will include those areas identified for credits, it is still necessary to show exactly where planted areas will be. Figure 7 shows areas that are described as "non-credit areas" but are still likely to be planted. Therefore, show the Planted Area on Figure 7. Figure 7 has been updated to show the planted area. 12. Section 4.4 - Add that the activities that have to be completed before the site visit also include adequately marking the boundaries of the conservation easement. The correction has been mode. 13. Section 5.1— a. Also add that the plots will be representative of both nutrient offset credit areas and buffer mitigation credit areas. The correction has been mode b. Remove "of" The correction has been mode c. Insert "performance standards used to" The correction has been mode d. Change "MBI" to "UMBI" The correction has been mode 14.

Use this section to explain how the Conservation Easement is designed to ensure Ditch D remains directly hydrologically connected to Little Buffalo. Text has been added to explain that this portion of the conservation easement is to maintain hydrologic connectivity to Little Buffalo Creek in perpetuity. b. Insert "and will be installed" The correction has been mode 16. Section 7.0 a. Use numbers to describe the acreage for buffer credit and also include the square footage. The correction has been mode b. In order to confirm that diffused flow meets the memo referenced here, please show the ditches that extend beyond the CE boundary and reference the supporting figure here. I cannot tell that there are ditches that continue beyond the CE boundary above A, C and E without this additional information provided. If no ditches are present beyond the CE boundary above these features, then non- diffused flow is likely not present, and deductions are not required. There ore portions of Ditches A, B, and C that extend outside of the conservation easement making the diffuse flow reductions necessary. Collouts hove been added to Figures 3 and 7 to clarify the presence of these features. Figures 3 and 7 ore provided os 11"x17" page size so that non -project portions of Ditches A, B, and C ore visible. c. Consolidate Table 8 and 9 into one table as represented on the DWR website. The correction has been mode. d. Insert "Some of the" The correction has been mode e. Insert "while it describes UT1, UT2, and Ditch B, the rest of the ditches are left out of the description and should be included. The correction has been mode f. Add a note that a survey will be done and will be submitted with the asbuilt report, which is when exact area/credits will be determined. The correction has been mode g. Replace "MBI" with "UMBI" The correction has been mode h. Table 8 — i. As indicated in previous comments, DWR needs additional information to confirm the Diffused Flow deductions reported here. The correction has been mode ii. Comments are provided on Figure 7 and thus, this table needs to be corrected to address those comments. The correction has been mode iii. Removed Ditch B from the 0-100' row and create a new row for Ditch B to include the ft2 within the 50-100' area. In the Feature Name column, show as "Ditch B (50-100)" since the Min -Max column doesn't offer you an option for 50-100'.

Provide supporting documentation of Preservation areas along UT1. Photographs of the preservation area along lower UT1 have been added to Appendix A: Current Land Use Photographs v. What about preservation potential along Little Buffalo Creek within the 10' easement? The width, when measured perpendicular and landward from Little Buffalo, meets the minimum width requirement even through the CE width is small. But it may be too small to include after the 10:1 ratio. Thoughts? Wildlands has chosen not to pursue Preservation in this area adjacent to Little Buffalo Creek. i. Since the UMBI provided a "general" credit release schedule and implies it could be different for sites proposed under the UMBI, the BPDP needs to include a Credit Release schedule specific for this site. Add that table here. The following table was added to the BPDP. Table 10: Credit Release Schedule for Riparian Buffer Credits and Nutrient Offset Credits % Credit Available for Task Project Milestone Sale 1 Instrument and BPDP Approved by DWR, Conservation Easement 20 Recorded, and Financial Assurance Posted All mitigation activities including riparian earthwork, Planting and Installation of Monitoring Devices Completed, • easement boundaries 2 adequately marked, and all applicable permits obtained, site visit 20 performed by DWR 3 Monitoring Financial Assurance Posted and Approval of As -Built Report 10 Monitoring Report #1: Approved by the DWR* & financial assurance 4 renewed 10 Monitoring Report #2: Approved by the DWR* & financial assurance 5 renewed 10 Monitoring Report #3: Approved by the DWR* & financial assurance 6 renewed 10 Item B (I) of Section X in this Instrument has been completed and approved 7 by DWR 5 No remaining credits will be released until Task 7 has been satisfied, assigning the conversation easement to an approved land trust or long-term steward.

These points were left off of Figures 3 and 7 due to o conflict with other symbology. Stream origin points con also be found in the appendix in the Stream Determination Letter. c. As requested in previous comments, show all ditches that extend beyond the CE boundary. Text stated that ditches A, C, and E were affected by the non -diffused flow memo, however only one "non -project ditch" is shown and that is on Ditch A. Explain. Please see our response pertaining to Section 7.0, comment b. d. Explain "No Credit" here since not all areas are removed from credit due to the same reasons. Diffuse flow reduction triangles were added to Figure 7 to identify those "no credit" areas. Remaining "no credit" areas ore either greater than 200 feet from top of bank of stream and ditches or occur in existing forested areas within 200 feet of ditches that do not qualify for any type of credit. e. Add something to depict "Planted Areas" Figure 7 has been updated with symbology to indicate planted areas. f. Measurements off UT2 are measured incorrectly. They should be measured perpendicular and landward, no radius allowed on UT2 in this scenario. Update all credit tables, text and maps accordingly. The correction has been mode. g. No credits are allowed to be generated where overland flow is intercepted by the pond, viability letter stated no credit was viable around the pond since it is not directly hydrologically connected to a stream; the radius measured off the ditch origin cannot be used in this scenario since there is a feature above the ditch that is not viable for riparian restoration to generate credit. The easement boundary has been modified to exclude the pond. All credit tables hove been updated accordingly. h. Show the Ditch origin point below the pond. The ditch origin point below the pond was not added to figures because it would obscure the portion of Ditch B outside of the conservation easement. It is important for this non - project portion of Ditch B to be visible to demonstrate the need for o diffuse flow reduction. Ditch B originates exactly where symbology indicates the end of the pond and beginning of the ditch. i. No credit to be generated within this area since it represents riparian areas adjacent to the feature that is not viable for credits per the viability letter. The easement boundary has been modified to exclude the pond. All credit tables hove been updated accordingly. j. Title needs to be changed. This map is showing more than buffer credit determination. The title has been changed to Figure 7. Riparian Buffer and Nutrient Offset Mitigation Credits and Concept Mop. k. Address comments made on other figures here as well. The corrections hove been mode. 18. There is only one photo representing he landuse conditions within a reasonable timeframe from when the site viability letter was issued in August. Include more photos of riparian conditions that are taken after the site visit by DWR and corresponding letter. Wildlands Engineering, Inc. • phone 704-332-7754 • fax 704-332-3306 • 1430 S.

Small forested areas are included along lower UT1, UT2, Ditch A, Ditch D, and Ditch E. In recent years the fields have been planted with corn, cotton, or soybeans adjacent to project streams and ditches. The Parcel easement boundary will extend from top of bank to a distance of 200 feet from top of bank in agricultural fields (Figure 3, Figure 7). Drainage direction throughout the entire Parcel is generally west to east towards the Little Buffalo Creek floodplain. UT1 is an intermittent stream beginning at the confluence of Ditch A and Ditch B. UT2 is also intermittent and originates at a point where the classification of Ditch C transitioned to stream. Ditch D drains directly to Little Buffalo Creek and Ditch E drains to UT1. South of Ditch C, land use has mostly been in row crop agriculture since at least 1950. The area between Ditch C and Ditch D was forested in 1950, partially cleared between 1950 and 1959, and completely cleared and converted to row crop fields between 1964 and 1973. Land use within the Parcel has remained unchanged since 1973 (Appendix B). This suggests that watershed processes affecting hydrology, sediment supply, and nutrient and pollutant delivery have been consistent since the time of most recent land use modification. It is likely that the Parcel watershed outside of the proposed conservation easement will remain in agricultural land use during the implementation, monitoring, and closeout of this Parcel.

NCDWR also performed an onsite visit of the Parcel area to determine viability for buffer mitigation and nutrient offset on June 8, 2021 and issued a site viability letter on August 26, 2021. Three of the eight features assessed were determined viable to generate buffer mitigation by NCDWR. There have been no changes to land use since NCDWR's 2021 site visits. A copy of the Determination for Applicability to the Neuse River Buffer Rules and Site Viability for Buffer Mitigation & Nutrient Offset letters from NCDWR are included in Appendix C. A summary of features classifications and credit viability is included in Table 3.

The proposed project is in compliance in the following ways: Preservation on Non -Subject Streams (15A NCAC 02B .0295 (o)(4): • The buffer width is at least 30 feet from the stream (See Figure 8 for buffer zones). The minimum width of riparian areas on this site is 50 feet from top of banks. • The area meets the requirements of 15A NCAC 02R 0.0403(c)(7), (8), and (11) with no known structures, infrastructure, hazardous substances, solid waste, or encumbrances within the mitigation boundary (Appendix D for EDR Radius Report summary). • Mitigation credits for preservation are being requested on no more than 25% of the total area of buffer mitigation (See Table 8 for credit calculations). Restoration on Ditches (15A NCAC 02B .0295 (o)(8): • DWR Site Viability Assessment concluded the ditch meets 15 A NCAC 02B .0295(o)(8) A-E. • The restored are shall not be less than 30 feet and shall not exceed 50 feet (See Figure 8 for Buffer Zones). The watershed draining to the ditch shall be at least four times larger than the restored area along the ditch (see Table 4). The ditch is directly connected with and draining towards an intermittent or perennial stream (See Figure 3 for Ditch B connection with UT1). The ditch is contiguous with the rest of the mitigation site protected under a perpetual conservation easement (See Figures 3 and 7 for easement boundary). The conservation easement does not allow for any alteration of the drainage, including within the internal crossing; therefore, the hydrologic connection between Ditch B and UT1 is unaffected by the internal crossing. The following sections describe the existing riparian conditions on the Parcel in terms of watershed, soils, geology, cultural resources, species of concern, regulated floodplain zones, and site constraints. 2.5 Watershed Characterization Project tributaries and ditches flow into Little Buffalo Creek which flows into the Little River, which subsequently flows into the Neuse River. Little Buffalo Creek, the Little River, and the Neuse River are classified as NSW by NCDWR. The NSW designation applies to surface waters that experience excessive microscopic and macroscopic vegetation growth. Little Buffalo Creek is also classified as Class C waters which are designated for recreational use, agriculture, fishing and fish consumption, and maintenance of biological integrity for wildlife. The Parcel topography, as indicated on the Kenly West, NC USGS 7.5-minute topographic quadrangle, shows minimally sloped areas throughout the Parcel (Figure 3). Drainage areas for the project reaches (Figure 4) were derived from the North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program's 2017 Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data. Land uses draining to the project reaches are primarily agricultural with some forested areas. The watershed areas and current land use are summarized in Table 4, below.

Species present in the narrow forested strip south of Ditch A, small forested area along lower UT2, and the single row of trees and forest area along lower Ditch D include river birch (eetula nigra), Little River - Weaver Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP 460 HUC 03020201 Page 5 April 2022 red maple (Acer rubrum), black willow (Salix nigra), white oak (Quercus alba), willow oak (Quercus phellos), water oak (Quercus nigra), cherrybark oak (Quercus pagoda), elderberry (Sambucus canadensis), sweetgum (Liquidam bar styraciflua), loblolly pine (Pinus taeda), blackberry (Rubus spp.), and Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica). 2.8 Threatened and Endangered Species The NC Natural Heritage Program (NHP) database and the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Information for Planning and Consultation database (IPaC) were searched for federally listed threatened and endangered plant and animal species in Johnston County, NC. The dwarf wedgemussel (Alasmidonta heterodon), Tar River spinymussel (Elliptio steinstansana), and yellow lance (Elliptio lanceolata) are currently listed as threatened or endangered and the Neuse River waterdog (Necturus lewisi), Carolina madtom (Notorus furiosus), and Atlantic pigtoe (Fusconaia masoni) are proposed for listing as threatened or endangered. Correspondence with USFWS is included in the Appendix D. USFWS concurred with biological conclusions provided in the self -certification package. 2.9 Cultural Resources No historic or cultural resources have been observed during numerous site visits. The Parcel is not located near any sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) was contacted with request for review and comment on January 27, 2021. SHPO responded on March 5, 2021 and stated they were aware of no historic resources which that would be affected by the Parcel. Correspondence with SHPO is included in Appendix D. 2.10 FEMA Floodplain Compliance The Parcel is located within the 100-year floodplain. No grading is proposed so floodplain permitting will not be required. 2.11 Parcel Location, Parcel Constraints, and Access The Parcel is accessible for planting, monitoring, and long-term stewardship from Weaver Road (Figure 3). One existing culvert crossing on Ditch B will be maintained and placed within an internal easement crossing. The internal easement crossing language will be written to ensure there is no disruption in connectivity between Ditch B and UT1. Another existing culvert near the upstream extent of UT1 will be removed (Figure 7). There are no additional easement crossings. 2.12 Other Environmental Conditions An EDR Radius Map Report with Geocheck was ordered for the Parcel through Environmental Data Resources, Inc. on August 18, 2020. The target property was not listed in any of the Federal, State, or Tribal environmental databases searched by EDR. There were no known or potentially hazardous waste sites identified within the Parcel. The Executive Summary of the EDR report is included in the Appendix. 3.0 Site Protection Instrument The land required for planting, management, and stewardship of the Parcel includes portions of the parcels listed in Table 6. The Parcel will remain in private ownership, protected in its entirety by an NCDWR approved long term steward and will be managed under the terms detailed in an approved NCDWR conservation easement. Little River - Weaver Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP 460 HUC 03020201 Page 6 April 2022 Table 6: Site Protection Instrument Site Deed Book Acreage Landowner PIN County Protection and Page to be Instrument Number Protected Weaver, William Ray and 264600-59-9330 Weaver, Rebecca 264600-68-9215 Johnston Conservation Easement To Be Recorded 36.7 Weaver, William Ray and Ford, 264700-60-8358 264600-79-2796 Susan Weaver 264600-79-4123 4.0 Mitigation Work Plan The Parcel will restore agricultural land along the two tributaries and five ditches to a protected, forested riparian corridor and improve ecological function of the area. The Parcel design will avoid adverse impacts to existing riparian buffers. Figure 7 illustrates the conceptual design for the Parcel, and Figure 8 depicts the riparian buffer zones for the Parcel. 4.1 Parcel Preparation The land use within 200 feet from top of bank of the project features has been maintained for row crop cultivation except for a small forested areas along lower UT1, UT2, Ditch A, Ditch D, and Ditch E. These forested areas will be preserved with a conservation easement along with the rest of the Parcel. Minimal site preparation is anticipated in areas slated for restoration because the land will remain in agriculture until the fall prior to planting. Soil physical properties have been affected by agricultural practices, but are not expected to impose significant limitations to tree growth. It is expected that the Parcel will be planted using a mechanical tree planter. The shanks on a mechanical planter are capable of penetrating a plow pan to improve soil conditions for tree growth. Chisel plowing or ripping may be implemented in selected areas of the parcel to alleviate the minor soil compaction if mechanical planting is unavailable. Based on observation of the site during multiple growing seasons, herbaceous vegetation is expected to volunteer and become well established throughout the Parcel. Supplemental herbaceous seed will be added to areas that do not exhibit adequate volunteer vegetation growth during the spring of 2023. The culvert in UT1 will be removed. The disturbed area will be covered with coir matting and seeded. No other bank stabilization practices are proposed. Wildlands has requested that landowners avoid or limit mowing of ditch banks for the remainder of the Parcel's agricultural land use to maintain stability. 4.2 Riparian Area Restoration Activities Riparian area restoration will involve planting appropriate native tree species along the tributaries and ditches. Vegetation management or herbicide applications may be required to prevent competition with planted stems and eliminate invasive species. The planned tree species and proportions for Parcel planting are presented in Table 7. A minimum of eight of these species will be planted if any constraints arise that defeat feasibility of planting all 11 species at proportions listed in Table 7. The riparian restoration and preservation areas for buffer mitigation credit areas along UT1, UT2, and Ditch A exceed the minimum required with of 30 feet from the top of bank of streams for full crediting. Buffer mitigation areas along UT1 and UT2 extend to a maximum of 100 feet from the top of bank for riparian restoration and to a maximum of 200 feet for preservation. Buffer mitigation credit for riparian restoration along Ditch B extends to a maximum of 50 feet from top of bank, meeting the required Little River - Weaver Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP 460 HUC 03020201 Page 7 April 2022 maximum width from top of bank of ditches for buffer mitigation crediting. Nutrient offset credit areas exceed the minimum required width of 50 feet and extend to a maximum of 200 feet from the top of bank. Credit zones and buffer widths are displayed on Figure 7 and Figure 8.

At least 8 of the 11 species listed in Table 7 will be planted, and stems will be well mixed prior to planting to ensure diversity of tree species across the Parcel. Due to the nature of random mixing, some stems of the same species might be planted together in some areas. No one tree species will be greater than 50% of the established stems. A regionally appropriate seed mix of warm season grasses and wildflowers will also be applied to provide temporary and permanent ground cover for soil stabilization and reduction of sediment loss during rain events in areas without volunteer herbaceous cover. If permanent herbaceous seeding is determined necessary due to lack of volunteer herbaceous cover, the permanent seed mix applied would include species provided in Table 8. Rye grain (Secale cereale) or German millet (Setaria italica) will be used for temporary ground cover, if required. The proposed planting area includes both the areas identified Riparian Restoration for Riparian Buffer Credits and Nutrient Offset Credits on Figure 7. Planting is scheduled for December 2022.

Existing areas of forest will be protected in perpetuity by a conservation easement (Figure 7). No additional treatment or planting is planned for these areas of the Parcel. 4.4 NCDWR As -Built Evaluation Within 30 calendar days after completing the establishment of the buffer mitigation and nutrient offset areas, the Sponsor will submit written notification to NCDWR documenting that all buffer mitigation and nutrient offset activities have been completed. For this Parcel, specific activities that must be completed prior to NCDWR notification include planting, culvert removal in UT1, and conservation easement boundary marking. Failure to submit written notification within 30 days may result in a modified credit release schedule or a delay in the issuance of credit releases. 5.0 Monitoring and Maintenance Plan 5.1 Monitoring Protocol A total of 27 100 square meter permanent vegetation monitoring plots will be installed and evaluated within the riparian restoration areas to measure the survival of the planted trees. The plots will be randomly placed throughout the planted riparian areas and representative of both the buffer mitigation and nutrient offset credit areas (Figure 9). 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 28 plots. Overview photos will be taken each monitoring year and provided in the annual reports. All planted stems will be marked with flagging tape and recorded. The first annual vegetation inventory monitoring will commence at the end of the first growing season, at least five months after planting has been completed and no earlier than September 1. 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. Performance standards used to measure vegetative success for the Parcel will be the survival of at least four native hardwood tree species, where Little River - Weaver Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP 460 HUC 03020201 Page 9 April 2022 no one species is greater than 50% of the established planted stems, and an established density of at least 260 planted trees per acre at the end of the fifth year of monitoring. Appropriate and desirable native volunteer species may be included in the Parcel's density to meet the performance standards with NCDWR approval. The Sponsor shall submit the annual monitoring report to NCDWR by December 315Y of each year for five consecutive years and will follow the terms and conditions of the UMBI. 5.2 Parcel Maintenance If the Parcel or a specific component of the Parcel fails to achieve the performance standards outlined in Section 5.1, adaptive measures will be developed and/or appropriate remedial actions will be implemented. Maintenance will be performed to correct any identified problems on the Parcel that have a high likelihood of affecting project success. Such items include but are not limited to competing vegetation, flooding, drought, or insects that cause excess tree mortality. Any actions implemented will be designed to achieve the performance standards and will include a work schedule and updated monitoring criteria. Herbicide application may be required during the first few years to reduce competing vegetation. The only herbicides used on the Parcel will be aquatic approved and will be applied in accordance with North Carolina Department of Agriculture rules and regulations. The easement boundary will be checked annually as part of monitoring activities. Easement boundary conditions as well as any maintenance performed will be reported in the annual monitoring reports to NCDWR. If mowing is deemed necessary by the Sponsor during the monitoring period, the Sponsor must receive approval from NCDWR prior to conducting any mowing activities within Zone 1 and Zone 2 of the Neuse buffers to ensure that no violations occur. 5.3 Easement Boundaries Easement boundaries will be identified in the field to ensure clear distinction between the Parcel and adjacent properties. Boundaries may be identified by marker, post, tree -blazing, or other means as allowed by site conditions and/or conservation easement and will be installed prior to the NCDWR onsite As -Built evaluation. 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. The portion of the conservation easement associated with Ditch D includes a 10-foot-wide strip that connects Ditch D to Little Buffalo Creek. This section of the easement is to ensure Ditch D remains cannot be modified and maintains hydrologic connectivity to Little Buffalo Creek in perpetuity. 6.0 Financial Assurance and Long -Term Management 6.1 Financial Assurances Following approval of the Little River - Weaver Bank Parcel Development Package, the Sponsor shall provide a Performance Bond from a surety that is rated no less than an "A-" as rated by A.M. Best. The Performance Bond amount shall be 100% of the estimated cost for implementation of the project as described in the Bank Parcel Development Package (BPDP), but not less than $150,000.00. In lieu of posting the performance bond, the Sponsor may elect to construct the Parcel prior to the first credit release. In that case no performance bond will be necessary. After completion of the restoration/construction, a separate Performance/Maintenance Bond will be secured for 100% of the estimated cost to implement the monitoring and maintenance plan but not less than $100,000.00. The Performance/Maintenance Bond shall apply at the inception of the monitoring period for a term of one year and be extended annually for a minimum of five years. Upon NCDWR approval, this may be lowered each year based on the adjusted cost to complete the monitoring. Little River - Weaver Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP 460 HUC 03020201 Page 10 April 2022 Performance bonds for monitoring shall be renewed at least annually to cover the next years monitoring period, with confirmation of renewal provided to NCDWR with each annual monitoring report when applicable. NCDWR reserves the right to alter the credit release schedule if monitoring reports are submitted without proof of bond renewals when applicable. 6.2 Long-term Management The Parcel will remain in private ownership, protected in its entirety by an approved NCDWR long term steward, and will be managed under the terms detailed in an approved NCDWR conservation easement. The long-term manager will be chosen prior to the submittal of the Year 4 Monitoring report and will be responsible for periodic inspection of the Parcel to ensure that the restrictions documented in the recorded easement are upheld in perpetuity. No remaining credits will be released for Monitoring Year 4 until the conservation easement has been assigned to an approved land trust or stewardship 7.0 Project Credit Potential Of the 36.63 acres (1,595,472 ft2) protected under the conservation easement, the mitigation activity for 32.77 acres (1,427,494 ft2) is riparian restoration. 7.22 acres (314,652 ft2) are proposed for buffer mitigation credit via restoration and 25.55 acres (1,112,842 ft2) are proposed for nutrient offset credit. There is also 0.19 acres (8,285 ft2) of preservation proposed for riparian buffer credit within the conservation easement. The Buffer Interpretation/Clarification Memo #2008-019 applies to Ditches A, B, and C where maintenance of diffuse flow onsite is unattainable; therefore, a total of 0.25 acres (10,875 ft2) were removed from the creditable area at the upper extent of Ditches A, B, and C (Figure 7). The management objectives, credit type, and proposed amounts of buffer restoration and preservation are presented in Table 9 below. Some of the riparian restoration areas along UT1, UT2, and Ditch B are viable for either riparian buffer credits or nutrient offset credits; however, Riparian Buffer Credit will be sought within area top of bank-100' on UT1 and UT2 and top of bank-50' along Ditch B. These credits can be converted and transferred into Nutrient Offset Credits only upon receiving written approval from NCDWR. Nutrient Offset Credits are proposed from 101'-200' along UT1 and UT2, 50'-200' along Ditch B, and top of bank-200' along Ditches A, C, D, and E. Nutrient Offset Credits are not convertible to Riparian Buffer Credits per the Parcel's UMBI. A Professional Land Surveyor licensed in North Carolina will prepare a plat of the credit zones in the Parcel and provide the final and exact square footage for each credit type. Final crediting will be based on this plat. There will be three credit ledgers for the project: • Buffer Restoration Credit Ledger, • Buffer Preservation Credit Ledger, • and Nitrogen Nutrient Offset Credit Ledger. 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.

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 for subjectivity to the Neuse River Riparian Area Protection Rules. Streams that are considered "Subject" have been located on the most recently published NRCS Soil Survey of Wayne 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. There may be other streams or features located on the property that appear or do not appear on the maps referenced above. Any of the features on the site may be considered jurisdictional according to the US Army Corps of Engineers and subject to the Clean Water Act.

(Wildlands) for a site visit near the above - referenced site in the Neuse River Basin within the 8-digit Hydrologic Unit Code 03020201. The site visit was to determine the potential for riparian buffer mitigation and nutrient offset within a proposed conservation easement boundary, which is more accurately depicted in the attached map labeled "Figure 1-Site Map" (Figure 1) prepared by Wildlands. The proposed easement boundary in Figure 1, includes all riparian areas intended to be proposed as part of the mitigation site. On July 14, 2021, Ms. Merritt performed a site assessment of the subject site. Staff with Wildlands were also present. Ms. Merritt's evaluation of the features onsite and their associated mitigation determination for the riparian areas are provided in the table below. This evaluation was made from Top of Bank (TOB) and landward 200' from each feature for buffer mitigation pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (effective November 1, 2015) and for nutrient offset credits pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0703.

The map representing the proposal for the site is attached to this letter and initialed by Ms. Merritt on August 26, 2021. Substantial changes to the proposed easement boundary as well as any site constraints identified in this letter, could affect the Site's potential to generate buffer mitigation and nutrient offset credits. This letter does not constitute an approval of this Site to generate buffer and nutrient offset credits. Pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0295, a mitigation proposal and a mitigation plan shall be submitted to DWR for written approval prior to conducting any mitigation activities in riparian areas and/or surface waters for buffer mitigation credit. Pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0703, a proposal regarding a proposed nutrient load -reducing measure for nutrient offset credit shall be submitted to DWR for approval prior to any mitigation activities in riparian areas and/or surface waters. All vegetative plantings, performance criteria and other mitigation requirements for riparian restoration, enhancement and preservation must follow the requirements in 15A NCAC 02B .0295 to be eligible for buffer and/or nutrient offset mitigation credits. For any areas depicted as not being viable for nutrient offset credit above, one could propose a different measure, along with supporting calculations and sufficient detail to support estimates of load reduction, for review by the DWR to determine viability for nutrient offset in accordance with 15A NCAC 02B .0703. This viability assessment will expire on August 26, 2023 or upon approval of a mitigation plan by the DWR, whichever comes first.

The species list fulfills the requirements of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) under section 7(c) of the Endangered Species Act (Act) of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). New information based on updated surveys, changes in the abundance and distribution of species, changed habitat conditions, or other factors could change this list. Please feel free to contact us if you need more current information or assistance regarding the potential impacts to federally proposed, listed, and candidate species and federally designated and proposed critical habitat. Please note that under 50 CFR 402.12(e) of the regulations implementing section 7 of the Act, the accuracy of this species list should be verified after 90 days. This verification can be completed formally or informally as desired. The Service recommends that verification be completed by visiting the ECOS-IPaC website at regular intervals during project planning and implementation for updates to species lists and information. An updated list may be requested through the ECOS-IPaC system by completing the same process used to receive the enclosed list. Section 7 of the Act requires that all federal agencies (or their designated non-federal representative), in consultation with the Service, insure that any action federally authorized, funded, or carried out by such agencies is not likely to jeopardize the continued existence of any federally -listed endangered or threatened species. A biological assessment or evaluation may be prepared to fulfill that requirement and in determining whether additional consultation with the Service is necessary. In addition to the federally -protected species list, information on the species' life histories and habitats and information on completing a biological assessment or 12/14/2020 Event Code: 04EN2000-2021-E-00806 evaluation and can be found on our web page at http://www.fws.gov/raleigh. Please check the web site often for updated information or changes If your project contains suitable habitat for any of the federally -listed species known to be present within the county where your project occurs, the proposed action has the potential to adversely affect those species. As such, we recommend that surveys be conducted to determine the species' presence or absence within the project area. The use of North Carolina Natural Heritage program data should not be substituted for actual field surveys. If you determine that the proposed action may affect (i.e., likely to adversely affect or not likely to adversely affect) a federally -protected species, you should notify this office with your determination, the results of your surveys, survey methodologies, and an analysis of the effects of the action on listed species, including consideration of direct, indirect, and cumulative effects, before conducting any activities that might affect the species. If you determine that the proposed action will have no effect (i.e., no beneficial or adverse, direct or indirect effect) on federally listed species, then you are not required to contact our office for concurrence (unless an Environmental Impact Statement is prepared). However, you should maintain a complete record of the assessment, including steps leading to your determination of effect, the qualified personnel conducting the assessment, habitat conditions, site photographs, and any other related articles. Please be aware that bald and golden eagles are protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (16 U.S.C. 668 et seq.), and projects affecting these species may require development of an eagle conservation plan (http://www.fws.gov/windenergy/ eagle_guidance.html). Additionally, wind energy projects should follow the wind energy guidelines (http://www.fws.gov/windenergy/) for minimizing impacts to migratory birds and bats. Guidance for minimizing impacts to migratory birds for projects including communications towers (e.g., cellular, digital television, radio, and emergency broadcast) can be found at: http:// www.fws.gov/migratorybirds/CurrentBirdlssues/Hazards/towers/towers.htm; http:// www.towerkill.com; and http://www.fws.gov/migratory birds/CurrentBirdlssues/Hazards/towers/ comtow.html. Not all Threatened and Endangered Species that occur in North Carolina are subject to section 7 consultation with the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service. Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon, sea turtles,when in the water, and certain marine mammals are under purview of the National Marine Fisheries Service. If your project occurs in marine, estuarine, or coastal river systems you should also contact the National Marine Fisheries Service, http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/ We appreciate your concern for threatened and endangered species. The Service encourages Federal agencies to include conservation of threatened and endangered species into their project planning to further the purposes of the Act. Please include the Consultation Tracking Number in the header of this letter with any request for consultation or correspondence about your project that you submit to our office.

The Service has reviewed the Online Project Review package submitted by email on January 27, 2021. Our comments are provided pursuant to, and in accordance with, provisions of the Endangered Species Act (the Act). The submitted package included a self -certification letter, a species conclusions table and a species list printout from the Information, Planning, and Consultation System (IPaQ website. No other information was included concerning species surveys or the potential activities on site (methods of construction, measures to avoid and minimize impacts on the site and downstream, etc.). As noted in the submitted documents, most of the waterbodies on the site do not contain suitable habitat for listed aquatic species or species proposed to be listed. However, the species conclusions table indicates that suitable habitat is present for Neuse River waterdog (NRWD), Atlantic pigtoe, dwarf wedgemussel, and yellow lance. Further, the proposed project is just upstream of occupied habitat (Little River) for yellow lance and NRWD. The Service is pleased to see this proposal for compensatory mitigation in a watershed with known records of sensitive species and we encourage stream and wetland projects in these watersheds, because of the potential benefits to species downstream. However, we caution that the potential effects of the proposed plans and construction methods should be carefully considered during review. It does not appear that any aquatic surveys were conducted within the suitable habitat onsite for listed mussels. The Natural Heritage Program's (NHP) dataset only reflects data which has been provided by others. The lack of data on a parcel does not indicate an absence of a species; rather it often means that no data has been collected. It is the responsibility of the applicant to survey for listed species. We recommend that mussel surveys and NRWD surveys be conducted in the areas of suitable habitat, to determine whether sensitive aquatic species are present. We recommend that NRWD surveys be conducted as soon as possible, as this species is most easily surveyed during the coldest months of January and February. Also, the submittals do not consider the potential effects to listed and proposed aquatic species directly downstream of the site. In general, outside of stream reaches where listed or proposed aquatic species are found, in -water work is acceptable and encouraged; particularly with stringent adherence to sediment and erosion control requirements. In upstream reaches or tributaries flowing to waterbodies where listed species are known to be located, surveys should be conducted prior to planning, to determine whether individuals of those species are present in the tributaries. If no individuals are found in the tributaries, carefully -planned restoration, enhancement, or preservation of those streams may provide great benefits to the species downstream. Beneficial effects to species, as well as detrimental effects, are considered "effects" for the purposes of the ESA. Aquatic resources are highly susceptible to sedimentation. We recommend that all practicable measures be taken to avoid adverse impacts to sensitive aquatic species, including avoiding in - water work in reaches with occupied habitat, implementing stringent sediment and erosion control measures, constructing the project in the dry, and maintaining any remaining natural, vegetated buffers on streams and creeks on the project site (if applicable). The Service encourages you to continue project planning on this site, due to the potential benefits to listed aquatic species in Little River. However, because the Service does not currently have enough information concerning the project plans, construction methods, and potential for listed species within stream reaches on the site, we cannot concur with your species determinations at this time. We look forward to coordinating with you and reviewing more information concerning this project. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Kathy Matthews of this office at kathryn_matthews@fws.gov. Please note that Service staff are teleworking to lessen the spread of COVID-19.

A Site Map is enclosed. The site is located at latitude 35.587504 longitude-78.769015. The Little River Weaver Mitigation Site is being developed to provide riparian buffer and nutrient offset mitigation in the Neuse River basin. The project will include buffer restoration and preservation along two unnamed tributaries and five ditches that drain into Little Buffalo Creek. One existing pond will be removed. This buffer mitigation project will reduce sediment and nutrient loading, provide and improve terrestrial and in stream habitats, and improve stream and bank stability. The area surrounding the streams and channels proposed for buffer restoration is currently row crop agricultural fields. Restoring the vegetative buffer on the areas up to 200 feet from streams and ditches will remove the crops and fertilizer inputs within the project area. The restored floodplain areas will filter sediment during high rainfall events. The establishment of riparian buffers will create shading to minimize thermal heating. Finally, newly planted native vegetation will provide cover and food for wildlife. The major goals of the proposed buffer restoration project are to provide ecological and water quality enhancements to the Neuse River Basin by creating a functional riparian corridor and restoring the riparian buffer. Waters of the United States 404/401 permitting is not required for this buffer mitigation site as construction activities will only involve planting riparian vegetation and will not impact project streams or downstream resources. We thank you in advance for your timely response and cooperation. Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have concerning the extent of site disturbance associated with this project.

A Site Map and USGS Topographic Map showing the approximate project area are enclosed. The topographic figure was prepared from the Kenly West 7.5-Minute USGS Topographic Quadrangle, and the site is located at latitude 35.587504 longitude-78.169015. The Little River Weaver Mitigation Bank Parcel is being developed to provide riparian buffer and nutrient offset mitigation in the Neuse River Basin. The project will include restoration and preservation of riparian buffers on two unnamed tributaries and five ditches that drain into Little Buffalo Creek: UT1, UT2, Ditches A-E. Little Buffalo Creek has an existing riparian forested zone. Project streams and ditches are surrounded by row crop agricultural fields and forestland which was harvested approximately five years ago. The major goals of the riparian buffer and nutrient offset mitigation bank project are to provide ecological and water quality enhancements to the Neuse River Basin while creating a functional riparian corridor at the site level. This will be accomplished by restoring and or preserving the vegetative buffer on the areas up to 200 feet from streams and ditches, along with permanently preserving and protecting the site through establishing a conservation easement. The nearest site on the National Register of Historic Places is the Boyette Slave House (JT0003) located approximately four and a half miles to the north. The only NC Natural Heritage Program managed area located within a mile of the project area is the Johnston County Open Space and is located on a neighboring parcel to the south. None of these resources will be disturbed for the proposed project. No other architectural structures or archaeological artifacts have been observed or noted during preliminary surveys of the site for restoration purposes. We ask that you review the site based on the attached information to determine the presence of any historic properties. We thank you in advance for your timely response and cooperation.
