North Suisun Mitigation Bank

20. Brief project description

The North Suisun Mitigation Bank is a 627 acres mitigation bank that includes created vernal pools, vernal swales, and upland habitats. The preserve is located in Solano County, east of the town of Suisun Ciity. The goal of the bank is to preserve and maintain the quality of existing vernal pools, swales and other seasonal wetland habitats on the site, and to create additional vernal pool habitat. Mitigation at the bank will provide 126.9 acres of vernal pool preservation and 45 acres of vernal pool creation to serve as off-site mitigation.

21. Project type (see definitions to right)

Check one: [X ] Compensatory mitigation [ ] Non-mitigation

Definitions for project type

Compensatory mitigation: Project includes legally required work to compensate for unavoidable impacts to existing wetland/riparian habitat.

46. Performance Criteria

Paste into this area the criteria by which the performance and success of the restoration/mitigation project will be judged. Criteria can be extracted from final mitigation plan or permit; table formats are preferred. Attach separate file if necessary; can include time-based criteria such as percent plant cover by year, or duration and extent of soil saturation. See the Form instructions document for a full example.


Performance Criteria for Wetlands



All of the created vernal pool acreage must be inundated or saturated during the rainy season for periods of duration sufficient to support vernal pool plant and animal communities


Restored vernal pool acreage must be inundated or saturated during the rainy season for duration sufficient to support vernal pool plant communities and the depth and duration of inundation for the constructed pools is not significantly different than the reference pools (at α ≤ 0.05 or 95% confidence)



Constructed vernal pools shall have a relative cover of vernal pool indicator species that is not significantly different (at α ≤ 0.01 or 99% confidence) than the reference pools; or the number of vernal pool indicator species (i.e. richness) is not significantly different (at α ≤ 0.01 or 99% confidence) than the reference pools



5% of the total number of restored vernal pools will support listed vernal pool invertebrate species over the ten year monitoring period


47. Vegetation Planting List Paste from mitigation plan or permit, if available, into this area a list of any plant species that will be planted as part of this project. If no planting will occur, list species by habitat type expected to develop. Note that target vegetation should be native species. Attach a separate file if necessary.
No planting will occur on site as the preferred source of vegetation will be seed and egg inoculum obtained from on-site. Expected Plant Species to develop are included in the attached table of Vernal Pool Plant Species of Central Valley.

48. List reference sites or reference datasets to be used, if any

Quantitative Data will be collected from approximately 20 of the onsite existing pools – these will be the reference dataset.

49. Other project conditions in permit (Add as necessary)


50. Reporting requirements

Monitoring reports are required every: [X ] year [ ] 2 years [ ] years, over a total required monitoring period of years.

[ ] other schedule:

Other reports required:

Monitoring Data, analysis, conclusions and recommendations, if any, will be compiled in a report for submission to the Agencies. Monitoring reports will be submitted by December 31st of years 1,2,3,5,6,7,8 and 10, 15, 20 and every 10 years thereafter in perpetuity under this plan. Long-term monitoring will be accomplished under the O& M Plan and Special-status species Management Plan.


51. You must submit with this form the following maps of your project:

1) a map indicating present habitats at all project locations and

2) a map indicating planned habitat changes (gain/improvement/loss) at all project locations

  • Maps must use the habitat list provided on this form (see "Habitat Definitions" below)

  • Submittal must clearly identify the "Present Habitats" and "Planned Habitat Changes" maps respectively.

  • For mitigation projects, include both the impacted site and the mitigation site, on separate maps if necessary.

  • Include planting details and structural/hydro modifications if appropriate.

  • Examples of habitat maps can be found at

Indicate the map format used (listed in order of preference):

[ ] (Recommended) Google KML files saved from Google Maps: My Maps (free) or Google Earth Pro (not free). Maps must show the boundaries of all project habitats, using the habitat list provided on this form. See

[ ] GIS shapefiles. The shapefiles must depict the boundaries of all project habitats, using the habitat list provided on this form. Each shape should be attributed with the habitat name. Features and boundaries should be accurate to within 33 feet (10 meters). If possible, provide map in NAD83/WGS84 datum, UTM Zone 10 projection; identify datum/projection used.

[ ] Other electronic format (CAD or illustration format) that provides a context for location (inclusion of landmarks, known structures, geographic coordinates, or USGS DRG or DOQQ). Maps must show the boundaries of all habitats, using the habitat list provided on this form.

[ ] Habitats maps marked on paper USGS 7.5 minute topographic maps or DOQQ printouts. Maps must show the boundaries of all habitats, using the habitat list provided on this form.

52. If using Google Maps: My Maps or similar, provide URL(s) of habitat maps:


Consider all areas in both the mitigation/restoration project and the development project/impacted site. Provide the total area of all existing habitats (including riparian) in acres; provide also the total existing riparian habitat in linear feet.

53. Total existing wetland/riparian habitat (including habitat to be lost) 126.9 acres (all habitats): linear ft (riparian):
