  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! • Close-out! • Close-out!

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

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

  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. Project CloseoutExpanding Role for EEP Monitoring Firms • First round of closeouts Summer 2007 • 10 wetland projects and 1 stream project (approx.) • Close out process and report templates • http://www.nceep.net/business/monitoring/Monitoring_report_web/Projects_in_Monitoring.htm

  8. Project CloseoutExpanding Role for EEP Monitoring Firms • 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. Project CloseoutExpanding Role for EEP Monitoring Firms • 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

  10. Project CloseoutExpanding Role for EEP Monitoring Firms • 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

  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. EEP Restoration Plan Template(now “Project Implementation Manual” • 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)
