Project Example

Middle Fork Development Corp.

Individual Permit

Jackson Environmental was contracted by Middle Fork Development Corp. to prepare an Individual Permit for their proposed coal mining operation. This project included the preparation of a Jurisdictional Determination of the project area, an Indiana Bat Survey, a Compensatory Mitigation Report, and a Cumulative Impact Analysis. Methods used to conduct the field work included a level 3 routine wetland delineation as described in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual (Environmental Laboratory 1987) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jurisdictional Determination Form Instructional Guide Book, May 2007. Mist nets were placed across stream channels, trails, road ruts, roads, and within forest interiors according to guidelines (Appendix II) in the Agency Draft Indiana Bat (Myotis sodalis) Revised Recovery Plan (USFWS 1999).
