The River Products Company, Inc.
2014 – Present
The River Products Company, Inc. (RPC) is a premier mining and manufacturing operation located in Eastern Iowa. Long-term planning for mine expansion showed unavoidable wetland impacts and the need for future and ongoing wetland mitigation. Mitigation banks are areas that are restored, established, enhanced, or preserved to provide compensation for unavoidable impacts to wetland resources that are permitted under the Section 404 regulation.
The River Products Mitigation Bank provides not only the resources needed for restoration efforts, but it also provides a long-term funding source for on-going restoration efforts, maintenance, and management. The project created approximately 16.5 acres of forested wetland, 14.8 acres of emergent wetland, and 5.4 acres of buffer.
