According to EIP Director of Operations Dave Urban, both Leslie Day of the Corps and Ken Powell of the Minnesota Department of Water and Soil Resources are due particular recognition for their vision in undertaking the permitting of the largest and most complex restoration project ever undertaken in the region.
A hearty thank you also goes out to Deric Deuschle, Senior Biologist at Short Elliott Hendrickson Inc., who worked tirelessly with Dave to provide the scientific and technical evidence for the extent of the restoration opportunity on the enormous site.

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.
