What is a Wetland Bank?

A wetland bank is a wetland feature that has been restored, created, enhanced, or preserved for the purpose of compensating for permitted unavoidable impacts to wetlands at a different location from the wetland bank.  Wetland impacts in and around Blaine are typically the result of development projects (i.e. residential developments, commercial developments, roadway projects, etc.).
