The Kittrell Farms Riparian Buffer and Nutrient Offset Mitigation Bank is located approximately 1.8 miles northeast of Farmville, NC. The project area consists of approximately 16 acres of agricultural land previously in row crops and that was converted to a functioning forested riparian corridor. The site is in the Neuse River Basin, and the riparian buffers along the project streams and ditches reduce sediment and nutrient inputs, thus providing both ecological and water quality benefits. The plan for the buffer restoration area included permanent seeding, planting bare root trees, treatment of invasive plant species, removal pf drain tiles, and grading drain tile removal areas.
The project was planted in 2020 and is in monitoring year three.
