Restoration Initiative

The Tuscarawas and Upper Ohio Mitigation Banks will protect and restore a property covering nearly 455 acres of Eastern Ohio.

The site is ideally suited for the cost-effective restoration of stream channels in order to generate significant ecological uplift. EIP will restore miles of important ecological functions to streams historically degraded by logging, surface coal mining, road crossings, channelization and other hydromodification activities. Credits generated through this restoration of these critical aquatic resources are used to compensate for the unavoidable impacts from various economic development projects throughout eastern Ohio.
