Barberville Mitigation Bank
The Barberville Mitigation Bank provides State and Federal Freshwater Mitigation Credits within the St. Johns River (Wekiva to Welaka) Basin (also known as Basin 14). Mitigation credits are available to offset unavoidable wetland impacts in the St. Johns River (Wekiva to Welaka) Basin with RATIO credits (State) and UMAM (Federal).
The Barberville Mitigation Bank covers a total of 358 acres, and is located northwest of the intersection of State Road 40 and US Highway 17, adjacent to the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge and the Barberville Conservation Area, in Volusia County.
Habitats that will be preserved and restored on the site include cypress swamps, mixed wetland hardwoods, hydric pine flatwoods, freshwater marshes, and associated uplands, including long leaf pine, wiregrass prairies, and pastures.
