The Conservation Fund and Great Land Trust are proposing the SC-1/Mud Lake compensatory mitigation site from the preservation of the SC-1 Mud Lake property. The purpose of the preservation site is to protect high value aquatic resources, and to help maintain the ecological function of the Knik River watershed. The goal of the preservation site is to provide compensatory mitigation for impacts to aquatic sites authorized by Department of the Army permits in The Conservation Fund’s Southcentral Service Area and Great Land Trust's Mat-Su Borough Service Area. Factors considered in the selection of this site included the presence of high-quality aquatic resources, priority lands, the presence of threats to the aquatic resources, and the practicability of self-sustaining preservation. The SC-1 Mud Lake property is located on Mud Lake near the Knik River, within Section 17, 18, 19 & 30, T. 17 N., R. 3 E., Seward Meridian, Alaska; Latitude 61.552° N., Longitude 148.972° W. The proposed mitigation site is approximately 796 acres in size and is proposed to be preserved with a conservation easement and a non-development covenant.
