COMMUNITY
The wetlands mitigation plan protects
4,000 acres, expanding the green
belt around Charleston - terrific for
future hiking, biking, bird watching,
and enjoying nature.
ENVIRONMENT
The plan improves water quality,
protects wildlife, and restores the
long-leaf pine ecosystem.
Note: wetlands projects do not have
to be large; it is more about functional
ecological gain than acreage.
ECONOMY
Streamlined permitting supports
business development, adding
direct and indirect jobs to the local
economy, as well as around the state
through the supply chain.
A streamlined permitting process is good for
the economy and good for the environment.
