Lexington Mitigation Bank
The project is located very close to Lexington, Georgia, and historically has been used for cattle grazing. Excess fecal matter runoffs can damage a particular body of water by disrupting the natural balance of nutrients and other factors.
By working with Federal and State Agencies, we hope to protect about 3 miles of a stream from further damage by erecting and/or increasing the current buffers in place.
The various creeks and tributaries eventually flow into Indian Creek and further to the Broad River. Protecting and further enhancing the water resources of this region will benefit both nature and the human population.
Please note, the timeline photos may duplicate from our Paul’s Farm and Brown’s Chapel Quarry Projects.
