Welcome to Lake Swamp Mitigation Bank (Lake Swamp).

Environmental regulations are stringent. Developers face increasing challenges as do single-lot land owners. Performing responsible development is required by rule and law and we must all deal with unavoidable impact to wetlands by achieving an ecologically balanced result with the provisions of regulated wetland mitigation. Providing on-site mitigation to adequately offset wetland impact consumes valuable land and financial resources. Mitigating often includes a significant time commitment (5+ years) to ensure mitigation efforts are successful.

Lake Swamp is a UMAM permitted bank with freshwater, forested wetland and herbaceous wetland credits. These credits can be purchased within the service area to offset impacts regulated by St. Johns River Water Management District of Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The service area, Basin 17 (Halifax River), is located in eastern Flagler and Volusia counties. Visit the Service Area link.

Lake Swamp comprises 1,890 acres +/- of uplands and jurisdictional wetlands. It is home to many protected plant and animal species. Habitat restoration, enhancement and preservation provided by Lake Swamp are used as the basis for establishing credits to offset future wetland impact. The Bank is named after the most significant water resource onsite. The wetland system associated with this important regionally significant mitigation bank extends well onto Groover Branch. Groover Branch is a small creek that widens into a waterway southeast into the Little Tomoka River located approximately one mile southeast of the site. The Little Tomoka River is classified as an Outstanding Florida Water and it ultimately discharges into the Tomoka Basin to the northeast at the confluence with the Halifax River (Intracoastal Waterway).
