Wetland Mitigation Plan for Florida Department of Transportation Projects within the St. Johns River Water Management District Fiscal Year 2014-2015 INTRODUCTION This mitigation plan is developed pursuant to the provisions of section 373.4137, Florida Statutes, (F.S.), to provide wetland mitigation for the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). Section 373.4137, F.S., directs the water management districts to plan and implement mitigation for the FDOT projects in the adopted FDOT work program for which FDOT requests the District to provide the mitigation. Section 373.4137, F.S. directs the District mitigation plans to focus on land acquisition, restoration or enhancement, and Surface Water Improvement and Management projects where that option represents the best mitigation. In determining activities to be included in the plans, the District must also consider the purchase of credits from public and private mitigation banks. Section 373.4137, F.S., was amended in 2012. The amendments allow FDOT the option of directly providing the mitigation for their transportation projects or requesting that the District provide the mitigation (with FDOT funding). The amendments also reinstituted the requirement for FDEP approval of the mitigation plan. This is the seventeenth annual mitigation plan prepared for the FDOT Mitigation Program. An annual plan was not prepared for FY 2013-2014 as FDOT elected to purchase mitigation bank credits for their impacts. Each annual plan addresses the funded projects for the following FDOT fiscal year and necessary updates or modifications to previous plans. A Master Project List, including previously approved road projects and respective plan approval dates, is located in Appendix 2 page 27. The FY 2014-2015 plan includes five new road projects within the SJRWMD portion of FDOT Districts 2 and 5. The plan also includes an update of all mitigation projects for which the mitigation is not completed. The new projects are estimated to result in 17.50 acres of wetland and other surface water impacts. The impacts will occur in regulatory basins that do not have an US Army Corps of Engineers approved mitigation bank. All impact information in the plan is based on estimates provided by FDOT. Mitigation will be adjusted proportionally to account for permitted changes in impact acreage. The Uniform Mitigation Assessment Method will be used during permitting to confirm that sufficient mitigation has been provided. Project mitigation groups are organized by regulatory mitigation basin, and impacts are offset within the same basin unless specifically stated otherwise. During the permitting process, FDOT is required to implement practicable design modifications to reduce or eliminate impacts pursuant to subsection 373.4137(8), F.S.

FDOT WETLAND MITIGATION WORK PLAN MEASURES: Each program within the District is required to prepare a work plan with measurable goals and objectives. The work plan measure for this program is the total acreage of mitigation implemented per acre of wetland impact. For purposes of the work plan, mitigation is reported as implemented after issuance of required permits for the road project and after the District has been reimbursed by FDOT for land acquisition and management, restoration, enhancement, mitigation bank credit purchase, contracted work and/or other activities. The pie chart below provides a breakdown of the amount and distribution of wetland mitigation that has been implemented by the FDOT Wetland Mitigation program as of September 30, 2013. A total of 40,121.01 acres of mitigation has been provided to offset 1464.72 acres of wetland and other surface waters impacts. This total includes the mitigation acreage associated with 277.51 mitigation bank credits purchased to date. Some mitigation activities such as certain types of water quality improvement projects are not represented, as they are difficult to quantify as an acreage figure. These figures represent completion of mitigation for 153 road projects and partial implementation for 5 additional road projects through September 30, 2013.

NEW ROAD PROJECTS

BASIN 11: PROJECT GROUP SJ65

This is a new mitigation group, which will include the following projects: SR20 through Fowler’s Prairie SR20, East of US 301 to Putnam County Line UF Greenway and Trail, Segment 1 UF Greenway and Trail, Segment 2

FM #210024-4 FM #207818-1 FM #428896-1 FM #430614-1

The proposed projects will impact an estimated 8.53 acres of freshwater herbaceous and mixed forested wetlands associated with Fowler’s Prairie, Little Orange Creek, and Lake Alice. The proposed mitigation for this project is the preservation and enhancement of additional conservation lands in Regulatory Basin 11. The impacts will primarily occur to high quality wetlands which were acquired for conservation purposes as part of the Little Orange Creek Preserve and priority will be given to mitigation that would benefit the wetland systems and waterbodies that will be impacted by the roadway projects. Basin 11 does not have a mitigation bank. Figures 2 and 3 depict the location of the road widening projects and the existing public lands within Basin 11.

BASIN 22: PROJECT GROUP SJ57

One new road project is proposed for addition to this existing mitigation group which currently includes the following projects;

I-95 from N. of CR514 to SR 514 SR 5 (US1) S. of Highlands Dr. to S. of Oslo Rd. I-95 from Indian River C/L to SR 60 I-95 SR 60 to N. of CR 514 I-95 N. of CR514 to Brevard/Indian River C/L

FM# 413072-1 FM# 228583-4 FM# 413048-1 FM# 413050-1 FM# 413049-1

The new project is: I-95 Interchange at St. Johns Heritage Parkway/Palm Bay Parkway

FM# 426904-3

The new project is anticipated to impact 8.97 acres of wetlands, primarily consisting of wet prairie, freshwater marsh, hydric flatwoods and cypress. The previously approved mitigation plan for this group is preservation and enhancement as additions to existing conservation lands in basin 22 or restoration and enhancement on existing public lands. Current mitigation projects include wetland enhancement and restoration at the Wheeler Groves parcel to restore habitat connectivity between the St. Sebastian River Buffer Preserve State Park and the floodplain of the North Prong of the St. Sebastian River. Regulatory Basin 22, which has two banks CGW Mitigation Bank and Basin 22 Mitigation Bank. CGW Mitigation Bank has received both state and federal approval. CGW provides only saltwater mitigation credits, which would not offset the freshwater wetland impacts of the road projects in this group. Basin 22 Mitigation Bank received state approval in December 2013, but not federal approval. Additionally, no release of credits have been authorized by the state at this time.

UPDATE OF INCOMPLETE PROJECTS FROM PREVIOUS YEARS

BASINS 14, 16: PROJECT GROUP SJ56

This is an existing mitigation group, which currently includes the following road projects: SR 15 (US 17) DeLeon Springs to SR 40 US 1 @ Black Branch Bridge Commuter Rail Transit Project 92 Multiuse Path US17 to Kepler Sunrail/Commuter Rail –Deland Station, Sunrail/Commuter Rail –Debary to Deland

FM# 4102511 FM# 4110921 FM# 4129944 FM# 4172051 FM# 4234469 FM# 4234469

(2008) (2008) (2009) (2009) (2011) (2011)

The mitigation approved for this group in 2008 is wetland and upland preservation and enhancement as additions to the Heart Island Conservation Area or other adjacent conservation lands. The new 2009 and 2011 impacts were approved to be alternatively offset by purchase of credits from either Blackwater Creek Mitigation Bank or Wekiva River Mitigation Bank to the extent that credit purchase is the more cost-effective option. The majority of the impacts for this group are associated with the US 17 widening project which will be located, in part, on the District’s Heart Island Conservation Area. The widening project has the likelihood of severing a significant wildlife corridor between the Ocala National Forest and conservation lands to the east such as Tiger Bay State Forest, Relay Wildlife Management Area and the Volusia Conservation Corridor. To address this concern FDOT is incorporating wildlife crossings in the design. As part of the mitigation, the District and Volusia County purchased the Strawn parcel addition to Heart Island which in part borders the road project and will facilitate use of the crossing structures. Preservation and management of the parcel will also enhance the long-term value of Deep Creek, which is a significant feature of the parcel. Approximately 14.27 acres of the projected impact of 24.94 acres have been offset to date. FDOT is currently designing the SR 40 widening project immediately east of US 17 widening. Part of the mitigation for the remaining impacts in this mitigation group is acquisition, either by easement or fee simple, of parcels that would complement new crossing structures on SR 40 and potentially reduce the secondary impact of the roadway project. The balance of the mitigation could be provided by credits from either Blackwater Creek Mitigation Bank or Wekiva River Mitigation Bank.

BASIN 23: PROJECT GROUP SJ47 This is an existing mitigation group that currently includes the following road projects in the Lake Jesup regulatory basin: I-4 S. of Ivanhoe to N. of Kennedy Blvd SR 426, Mitchell Hammock to Winter Spgs SR 419/SR 436 west of Jetta Pt. to SR 426/CR426

FM# 242484-5 FM# 404525-1 FM# 422015-1

The previously approved mitigation plan for this group is preservation and enhancement as additions to existing conservation lands in this basin. Priority will be given to parcels which can provide both water quality and wildlife benefits within this rapidly urbanizing basin. There are no mitigation banks in basin 23 and the District is currently evaluating potential mitigation sites. Figure 10 shows existing conservation lands in basin 23.

PROJECTS PROPOSED FOR EXCLUSION FROM THE MITIGATION PROGRAM Section 373.4137(4)(b), F.S., provides that “[s]pecific projects may be excluded from the mitigation plan, in whole or in part, and are not subject to this section upon election by the Department of Transportation, a transportation authority if applicable, or the appropriate water management district.“ The District proposes to exclude the following previously approved projects that were approved as part of the 2012-2013 plan from the provisions of 373.4137, F.S. The previously approved plan for these projects was purchase of mitigation bank credits and FDOT has elected to complete the credit purchase.

USE OF MITIGATION BANKS

Subsection 373.4137(4), F.S., requires the District to consider the use of permitted mitigation banks in developing the FDOT mitigation plan. Please reference Figure 11 for the location of mitigation banks that have received both state and federal approval. Bank credits are proposed as an option for one of the incomplete mitigation groups in this plan, SJ 56, page 16. Mitigation group SJ 57 is located in Regulatory Basin 22, which has two banks. CGW Mitigation Bank has received both state and federal approval. CGW provides only saltwater mitigation credits which would not offset the freshwater wetland impact of the road projects in this group. Basin 22 Mitigation Bank received state approval in December 2013, but not federal approval. Additionally, no release of credits have been authorized by the state at this time. An alternative mitigation plan is proposed due to these circumstances. A new mitigation group, SJ65, is created as a part of this plan to provide mitigation primarily for the widening of SR 20 through a portion of Fowler’s Prairie. All of the roadway impacts occur in Regulatory Basin 11, which does not have an approved mitigation bank. In order to meet the cumulative impact criteria an in-basin mitigation option is proposed. The preferred option will also directly benefit the wetlands and waterbodies that will have the most significant impact. Previously approved mitigation group SJ 47 is located in the Lake Jesup Basin (Basin 23) which does not have an approved mitigation bank. An in-basin mitigation option was selected.

APPENDIX 1: 373.4137 F.S.

373.4137 Mitigation requirements for specified transportation projects. (1) The Legislature finds that environmental mitigation for the impact of transportation projects proposed by the Department of Transportation or a transportation authority established pursuant to chapter 348 or chapter 349 can be more effectively achieved by regional, long-range mitigation planning rather than on a project-by-project basis. It is the intent of the Legislature that mitigation to offset the adverse effects of these transportation projects be funded by the Department of Transportation and be carried out by the use of mitigation banks and any other mitigation options that satisfy state and federal requirements. (2) Environmental impact inventories for transportation projects proposed by the Department of Transportation or a transportation authority established pursuant to chapter 348 or chapter 349 shall be developed as follows: (a) By July 1 of each year, the Department of Transportation, or a transportation authority established pursuant to chapter 348 or chapter 349 which chooses to participate in the program, shall submit to the water management districts a list of its projects in the adopted work program and an environmental impact inventory of habitats addressed in the rules adopted pursuant to this part and s. 404 of the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. s. 1344, which may be impacted by its plan of construction for transportation projects in the next 3 years of the tentative work program. The Department of Transportation or a transportation authority established pursuant to chapter 348 or chapter 349 may also include in its environmental impact inventory the habitat impacts of any future transportation project. The Department of Transportation and each transportation authority established pursuant to chapter 348 or chapter 349 may fund any mitigation activities for future projects using current year funds. (b) The environmental impact inventory shall include a description of these habitat impacts, including their location, acreage, and type; state water quality classification of impacted wetlands and other surface waters; any other state or regional designations for these habitats; and a list of threatened species, endangered species, and species of special concern affected by the proposed project. (3)(a) To fund development and implementation of the mitigation plan for the projected impacts identified in the environmental impact inventory described in subsection (2), the Department of Transportation shall identify funds quarterly in an escrow account within the State Transportation Trust Fund for the environmental mitigation phase of projects budgeted by the Department of Transportation for the current fiscal year. The escrow account shall be maintained by the Department of Transportation for the benefit of the water management districts. Any interest earnings from the escrow account shall remain with the Department of Transportation. (b) Each transportation authority established pursuant to chapter 348 or chapter 349 that chooses to participate in this program shall create an escrow account within its financial structure and deposit funds in

2014-2015 FDOT Wetland Mitigation Plan

Page 23


the account to pay for the environmental mitigation phase of projects budgeted for the current fiscal year. The escrow account shall be maintained by the authority for the benefit of the water management districts. Any interest earnings from the escrow account shall remain with the authority. (c) Except for current mitigation projects in the monitoring and maintenance phase and except as allowed by paragraph (d), the water management districts may request a transfer of funds from an escrow account no sooner than 30 days before the date the funds are needed to pay for activities associated with development or implementation of the approved mitigation plan described in subsection (4) for the current fiscal year, including, but not limited to, design, engineering, production, and staff support. Actual conceptual plan preparation costs incurred before plan approval may be submitted to the Department of Transportation or the appropriate transportation authority each year with the plan. The conceptual plan preparation costs of each water management district will be paid from mitigation funds associated with the environmental impact inventory for the current year. The amount transferred to the escrow accounts each year by the Department of Transportation and participating transportation authorities established pursuant to chapter 348 or chapter 349 shall correspond to a cost per acre of $75,000 multiplied by the projected acres of impact identified in the environmental impact inventory described in subsection (2). However, the $75,000 cost per acre does not constitute an admission against interest by the state or its subdivisions and is not admissible as evidence of full compensation for any property acquired by eminent domain or through inverse condemnation. Each July 1, the cost per acre shall be adjusted by the percentage change in the average of the Consumer Price Index issued by the United States Department of Labor for the most recent 12-month period ending September 30, compared to the base year average, which is the average for the 12-month period ending September 30, 1996. Each quarter, the projected acreage of impact shall be reconciled with the acreage of impact of projects as permitted, including permit modifications, pursuant to this part and s. 404 of the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. s. 1344. The subject year’s transfer of funds shall be adjusted accordingly to reflect the acreage of impacts as permitted. The Department of Transportation and participating transportation authorities established pursuant to chapter 348 or chapter 349 are authorized to transfer such funds from the escrow accounts to the water management districts to carry out the mitigation programs. Environmental mitigation funds that are identified for or maintained in an escrow account for the benefit of a water management district may be released if the associated transportation project is excluded in whole or part from the mitigation plan. For a mitigation project that is in the maintenance and monitoring phase, the water management district may request and receive a one-time payment based on the project’s expected future maintenance and monitoring costs. Upon disbursement of the final maintenance and monitoring payment, the escrow account for the project established by the Department of Transportation or the participating transportation authority may be closed. Any interest earned on these disbursed funds shall remain with the water management district and must be used as authorized under this section. (d) Beginning in the 2005-2006 fiscal year, each water management district shall be paid a lump-sum amount of $75,000 per acre, adjusted as provided under paragraph (c), for federally funded transportation projects that are included on the environmental impact inventory and that have an approved mitigation plan. Beginning in the 2009-2010 fiscal year, each water management district shall be paid a lump-sum amount of $75,000 per acre, adjusted as provided under paragraph (c), for federally funded and nonfederally funded

2014-2015 FDOT Wetland Mitigation Plan

Page 24


transportation projects that have an approved mitigation plan. All mitigation costs, including, but not limited to, the costs of preparing conceptual plans and the costs of design, construction, staff support, future maintenance, and monitoring the mitigated acres shall be funded through these lump-sum amounts. (4) Before March 1 of each year, each water management district, in consultation with the Department of Environmental Protection, the United States Army Corps of Engineers, the Department of Transportation, participating transportation authorities established pursuant to chapter 348 or chapter 349, and other appropriate federal, state, and local governments, and other interested parties, including entities operating mitigation banks, shall develop a plan for the primary purpose of complying with the mitigation requirements adopted pursuant to this part and 33 U.S.C. s. 1344. In developing such plans, the districts shall use sound ecosystem management practices to address significant water resource needs and shall focus on activities of the Department of Environmental Protection and the water management districts, such as surface water improvement and management (SWIM) projects and lands identified for potential acquisition for preservation, restoration, or enhancement, and the control of invasive and exotic plants in wetlands and other surface waters, to the extent that the activities comply with the mitigation requirements adopted under this part and 33 U.S.C. s. 1344. In determining the activities to be included in the plans, the districts shall consider the purchase of credits from public or private mitigation banks permitted under s. 373.4136 and associated federal authorization and shall include the purchase as a part of the mitigation plan when the purchase would offset the impact of the transportation project, provide equal benefits to the water resources than other mitigation options being considered, and provide the most cost-effective mitigation option. The mitigation plan shall be submitted to the water management district governing board, or its designee, for review and approval. At least 14 days before approval, the water management district shall provide a copy of the draft mitigation plan to any person who has requested a copy. The plan may not be implemented until it is submitted to and approved, in part or in its entirety, by the Department of Environmental Protection. (a) For each transportation project with a funding request for the next fiscal year, the mitigation plan must include a brief explanation of why a mitigation bank was or was not chosen as a mitigation option, including an estimation of identifiable costs of the mitigation bank and nonbank options and other factors such as time saved, liability for success of the mitigation, and long-term maintenance. (b) Specific projects may be excluded from the mitigation plan, in whole or in part, and are not subject to this section upon the election of the Department of Transportation, a transportation authority if applicable, or the appropriate water management district. (c) When determining which projects to include in or exclude from the mitigation plan, the Department of Transportation shall investigate using credits from a permitted mitigation bank before those projects are submitted for inclusion in the plan. The investigation shall consider the cost-effectiveness of mitigation bank credits, including, but not limited to, factors such as time saved, transfer of liability for success of the mitigation, and long-term maintenance. (5) The water management district shall ensure that mitigation requirements pursuant to 33 U.S.C. s. 1344 are met for the impacts identified in the environmental impact inventory described in subsection (2), by implementation of the approved plan described in subsection (4) to the extent funding is provided by the 2014-2015 FDOT Wetland Mitigation Plan

Page 25


Department of Transportation, or a transportation authority established pursuant to chapter 348 or chapter 349, if applicable. During the federal permitting process, the water management district may deviate from the approved mitigation plan in order to comply with federal permitting requirements. (6) The mitigation plans shall be updated annually to reflect the most current Department of Transportation work program and project list of a transportation authority established pursuant to chapter 348 or chapter 349, if applicable, and may be amended throughout the year to anticipate schedule changes or additional projects which may arise. Each update and amendment of the mitigation plan shall be submitted to the governing board of the water management district or its designee for approval. However, such approval shall not be applicable to a deviation as described in subsection (5). (7) Upon approval by the governing board of the water management district or its designee, the mitigation plan shall be deemed to satisfy the mitigation requirements under this part for impacts specifically identified in the environmental impact inventory described in subsection (2) and any other mitigation requirements imposed by local, regional, and state agencies for these same impacts. The approval of the governing board of the water management district or its designee shall authorize the activities proposed in the mitigation plan, and no other state, regional, or local permit or approval shall be necessary. (8) This section shall not be construed to eliminate the need for the Department of Transportation or a transportation authority established pursuant to chapter 348 or chapter 349 to comply with the requirement to implement practicable design modifications, including realignment of transportation projects, to reduce or eliminate the impacts of its transportation projects on wetlands and other surface waters as required by rules adopted pursuant to this part, or to diminish the authority under this part to regulate other impacts, including water quantity or water quality impacts, or impacts regulated under this part that are not identified in the environmental impact inventory described in subsection (2). (9) The process for environmental mitigation for the impact of transportation projects under this section shall be available to an expressway, bridge, or transportation authority established under chapter 348 or chapter 349. Use of this process may be initiated by an authority depositing the requisite funds into an escrow account set up by the authority and filing an environmental impact inventory with the appropriate water management district. An authority that initiates the environmental mitigation process established by this section shall comply with subsection (6) by timely providing the appropriate water management district with the requisite work program information. A water management district may draw down funds from the escrow account as provided in this section.

Permitting

An overview of water management district permitting The two most common types of permits issued by Florida’s five water management districts address how much water may be used and address the impact of new development and construc​ ­ tion activities on water resources. The first type of permit, which authorizes water use, is a con​ sumptive use permit (CUP). A CUP typically allows water to be withdrawn from ground​ water or surface water for reasonable­beneficial uses — such as public supply (drinking water), agricultural and land​ scape irrigation, commercial use, and power generation — in a manner that does not inter​ fere with other existing legal water uses and protects water resources from harm (such as saltwater intrusion and drying up of wetlands, lakes and springs). CUPs require water conservation to prevent wasteful uses, such as the reuse of reclaimed water (treated wastewater) or storm water instead of higher quality groundwater, and set limits on how much water can be withdrawn at each location in the aquifer or from surface water. These limits protect existing residents’ water supplies and protect aquifers, lakes and rivers from harm. The second permit is an environmental resource permit (ERP), which authorizes new development or construction activities to occur in a manner that will prevent adverse flooding, manage surface water, and protect water quality, wetlands, and other surface waters. ERPs prevent flooding, protect the water quality of Florida’s lakes and streams from stormwater http://www.sjrwmd.com/permitting/#handbooks

pollution, and protect wetlands and other surface waters.

Who needs a CUP? Consumptive use permitting regulations have many thresholds, but the three situations which most frequently require a permit are: You want to withdraw water from a well that measures six inches or more in diameter You use or want to use an annual average of 100,000 gallons of water or more per day You have the capacity to pump 1 million gallons of water or more per day

Large water users, such as agricultural users, are required to obtain a consumptive use permit.

How do you obtain a CUP? To make certain that water users meet the criteria, District engineers and hydrologists review permit applications and conduct site inspections. Each permit applicant is required to: Submit a water conservation plan, providing measures to reduce water use and preserve water resources for other beneficial uses Investigate and use the lowest acceptable quality source of water. For example, golf courses and other large users of water for landscape irrigation are required to use reclaimed water or storm water when available instead of higher quality potable groundwater.

What happens after a CUP is issued? Each permit authorizes water use for a particular purpose and contains a number of permit conditions that must be followed by the water user. All water users are responsible for implementing their approved water conservation plan and reporting their total monthly water use every six months. Each permit has a limited duration and must be renewed upon expiration. At that time, the District reviews the permit again.

Who needs an ERP?

Golf courses and other large users of water are required to use the lowest acceptable quality source of water for irrigation.

ERPs were first required in 1995. They combine the former wetland dredge and fill permit issued by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the Management and Storage of Surface Waters permit issued by the water management districts. Anyone proposing construction of new facilities, including governmental agencies, developers building new residential or commercial areas, or anyone who wants to fill in wetlands must have an ERP. http://www.sjrwmd.com/permitting/#handbooks

Permitting

How do you obtain an ERP? ERP applications may be obtained online, or by calling or writing the District. If you need help in preparing the application, you can arrange a pre­application conference with a District engineer or environmental specialist, or you can call if you have questions that can be answered by phone. Most ERP applications involve a site visit by a District environmental specialists.

What happens after an ERP is issued? A permit is issued for a specific purpose and contains a number of conditions that must be followed. Permit holders are responsible for implementing these conditions and filing whatever reports may be necessary, including an as­built certification upon completion of construction. Each permit has a limited duration for construction, usually five years. On the St. Johns River Water Management District’s website, you can search for application and permit information and regulatory rules, forms and meeting information. You can also create and maintain a login ID that enables you to submit permit applications, submit permit compliance information, and subscribe to electronic noticing of application receipt and intended permit issuance decisions. Online applications that are currently available include the contractor licensing (new and renewals); water well construction permits (WWCs); consumptive use permits (CUPs), new, renewal and modifications; CUP notice of general permits; environmental resource permits (ERPs), new and modifications; and ERP­agriculture (silviculture) permits. All compliance submittals may also be submitted on this site.
