About Us

30 Years of Environmental Restoration + Preservation

Stream + Wetlands Foundation (S+W) – a non-profit corporation based in Lancaster, Ohio – was established in 1992 and is the largest provider of compensatory mitigation for impacts to aquatic resources authorized through state and federal regulatory programs. We are dedicated to providing turnkey, fixed cost, permittee responsible mitigation projects for applicants in areas not served by mitigation banks or In-Lieu Fee sponsors.

Highest Quality Off-Site Mitigation Alternatives At A Reasonable Cost

Since our inception, S+W has served more than 1,500 permit applicants that have completed an estimated $3 billion in economic development and infrastructure projects and have protected, enhanced, or restored, more than 4,000 acres of wetlands, riparian corridors, and upland buffers through the establishment of mitigation banks and permittee responsible mitigation projects. Each site is developed with the community in mind, often aiding with economic development activities in a region. On every project, we partner with a public entity who will be the long-term owner of the mitigation bank site to ensure sustained success.

“Stream and Wetlands Foundation did a remarkable job guiding us through the wetland mitigation process. Their in-depth knowledge and strong relationships with the regulatory community were a big factor in meeting the project timelines and developing a project that will enhance the environment and biodiversity of the Mosquito Creek watershed. Ultium Cells looks forward to successful project construction and establishment of a wetland that will be preserved in perpetuity for many generations to come. Many thanks to Stream and Wetlands and all the government partners who worked so diligently to make this project to protect the environment possible.”
