Energy & Environment Report: Fat private-equity investment buoys restoration industry - Restoration Systems

But Dave Urban, EIP's director of operations and past president of the National Mitigation Banking Association, keeps an informal and incomplete tally of the number of federal bank applications approved: 10 in 2008, 68 in 2009, 78 in 2010, 86 in 2011 and 38 so far this year.
"In 2009 and 2010, you just started seeing a flood of mitigation bank applications," Urban said. Urban, an environmental engineer and former Army Corps permit officer, says the cure to poor oversight is greater transparency. Boundaries of watersheds and siting of mitigation banks are dependent on factors ranging from flora and fauna to soil types and are not always conducive to simple rules. "There's some people who advocate simple solutions, but simple solutions are not always the right solutions," he said. "It keeps all boiling down to transparency," Urban added.

David Urban, Director of Operations of Ecosystem Investment Partners, provided a big picture view of the current state of mitigation banking.
He first noted the history and growth of mitigation banking - which started with early banks in the 1990s, grew to around 500 prior to the 2008 Rule and has since grown to around 900 banks. He noted that there was a lot of press about the failure of wetland mitigation in general. The 2008 Rule was a result of the 2002 National Academy of Sciences study that laid out what should be included in a mitigation plan. Mr. Urban noted that a standard against which mitigation banks are measured is regulatory requirements - and the track record is favorable with only 1% of banks suspended. A brief foray into analyzing RIBITS database unearthed both internal and external errors in data availability and analysis - highlighting the need for continued transparency of data. The other piece of the story, Mr. Urban noted, related to 'ORMS' wetlands permits data. From 2011 data, only about 50% of the watersheds in US had a permit issued for an impact to wetlands. He noted that this could be because of problems of enforcement.
