    Mr. Brad Meiklejohn/The Conservation Fund has prepared this instrument modification request to establish the SW-1 Kaleak mitigation site to protect 124.97 acres at the confluence of Old Man Creek and the Mulchatna River in Southwest Alaska. The project would protect palustrine and riverine wetlands and buffers. PROPOSED SITE: The sponsor proposes to preserve the 124.97 acre site. The goal of the mitigation site is to provide appropriate mitigation for impacts, within the authorized service area, by providing wetland preservation. The sponsor has proposed that The Conservation Fund’s Southwest Service Area be used as the service area for the proposed site. The Southwest Service area contains most of the USGS’ Southwest Alaska sub-region. It also contains a small portion of the Southcentral Alaska sub-region, mostly along the southern side of the Alaska Peninsula. These sub-regions correspond directly to the level 2 hydrologic unit codes 1903 and 1902 respectively. The political boundaries of the Lake and Peninsula Borough and the Kodiak Island Borough were considered in the creation of the Southwest Service Area .
