Great Land Trust proposes to preserve the 5 acre site. The purpose of the preservation is to protect high value habitat consistent with the State of Alaska Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge Management Plan, the Municipality of Anchorage Wetland Management Plan and Great Land Trust’s 2010 wetland prioritization. The goal of the mitigation site is to provide appropriate mitigation for impacts, within the authorized service area, by providing wetland preservation. The ILF Sponsor plans to establish this mitigation site by preserving all onsite wetlands. The sponsor has proposed, for purposes of Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act and/or Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, that the geographic service area of this mitigation site would include the portions of the USGS Hydrologic Unit Code 19020401 that are within the Municipality of Anchorage and the portions of USGS Hydrologic Unit Code 1902030207, Turnagain Arm that are within the Municipality of Anchorage.
