Wetlander's Pick of the PostsLoaded Lovers: Virginia Department of Transportation overspends on wetland mitigation bank (Video)

Restoration Systems – July 2012
Travis Hamrick came across this TV news story revealing that VDOT had spent — get this — $5.1 million building a mitigation bank. Now that might be excusable if the agency had wetted up thousands of acres, or restored a river like RS did at Carbonton, but the story says the project yielded a mere mile of stream restoration and 36 acres of wetlands. http://www.restorationsystems.com/army-corps-of-engineers/virginia-dot-do-it-yourself-government-mitigation-waaaay-overspends-on-mitigation-bank/
