Battle Ridge Mitigation Bank

The Battle Ridge Mitigation Bank is on approximately 934 acres surrounding the stream reaches, riparian buffers, and unnamed tributaries of Rogers Creek and Clearwater Branch in McMinn County, Tennessee. This bank is unique, as it is situated in two primary watersheds – the Hiwassee River and the Middle Tennessee-Chickamauga. Historically, the site was managed as an active loblolly pine plantation, which greatly altered all aspects of the property. All stream channels had been straightened and deepened to drain and support pine propagation and logging roads, and staging areas had interrupted stream flow and removed stream floodplain accessibility. Mitigation Resources will reconnect impaired streams to their pre-plantation floodplain and preserve functioning streams through perpetual protection of the watershed. When complete, the Battle Ridge Mitigation Bank will restore and preserve over 89,000 linear feet of stream channel. Battle Ridge will be the largest stream mitigation bank created to date in the state of Tennessee.
