1 EEP Update Kevin H. Miller CVS-EEP Vegetation Monitoring Workshop Wake Technical Community College Northern Campus June 10, 2009

2 Begin with the End in Mind Close-out!

3 Construction to Monitoring Transition Traditional Monitoring Features & Baseline As-Built Baseline Mitigation Plan Final SCO Report Year – 1 Monitoring Years 2-5 Designer Monitoring Firm

4 New (on-going phase in) Year – 1 Monitoring Years 2-5 Designer Monitoring Firm As-Built Baseline Monitoring Features & Baseline Mitigation Plan Final SCO Report Construction to Monitoring Transition

5 ‘08-09 Monitoring Action Items Boundary marking needed Encroachment Invasives Beaver Channel repair assessment needed Infrastructure at risk, hydro-trespass Landowner need or conflict Assets at risk (stream, wetland, buffer) Field validation needed

6 ’10-11 Monitoring Revised Monitoring Template (Ver 1.3) –Upcoming meetings with Mac More concise –Fewer tables, less narrative Revised veg tables (from Simple Excel Report) Refined Visual Morph Assessment Consolidated MPV/CCPV –Better definition of “Problem Area” –Refined symbology

7 First round of closeouts Summer wetland projects and 1 stream project (approx.) Close out process and report templates eport_web/Projects_in_Monitoring.htm Project Closeout Expanding Role for EEP Monitoring Firms

8 Closeout Process and Report -Were goals and success criteria met? -Detailed asset verification (stream, wetland, buffer) -Asset mining as part of verification -Distilled assessment of performance/trends -Summary tables, graphs, drawings

9 Distilled assessment of performance/trends and Summary tables, graphs, drawings Examples: -Re-establish bankfull, recalculate CA’s and graph -Was there a stable pattern of variation over 5 years? -Were key variables maintained within bounds? -BHR -% Bank instability -Bedform diversity -Gauge performance percentages Project Closeout Expanding Role for EEP Monitoring Firms

10 Asset Verification and Asset Mining Final verification that restoration treatments meet regulatory definitions Verifying boundaries and areas Verifying regulatory buffer limits/requirements are met Finding/defining overlooked assets surplus buffer components that classify as preservation opportunities wetland features or their extent Do component attributes justify ratio adjustments? BMPs headwater drainage capture stressor removal Project Closeout Expanding Role for EEP Monitoring Firms

11 EEP Restoration Plan Template (now “Project Implementation Manual” First version 2005 Updated April 2009 Now part of new “Project Implementation Manual” –all deliverables: conceptual plan, ERTR, restoration plan, construction documents, project closeout documents (record drawings, etc) –construction management and administration

12 major change affects planting plan- related tables –Table 7: Soil Preparation and Stabilization –Table 8: Temporary and Permanent Seeding –Table 9: Planting Summary Table –tables still the same –moved from Restoration Plan to Project Manual (and re-numbered) EEP Restoration Plan Template (now “Project Implementation Manual”
