The Black Creek Mitigation Bank will assist in current and future development within the following larger Tennessee cities:

Kingsport, Blountville, Bristol, Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Jefferson City, Knoxville, Erwin, Greeneville, Johnson City, Dandridge, Jonesborough, Rogersville, Mount Carmel, Morristown, Newport, Hartford

The Black Creek Mitigation Bank will create stream and wetland mitigation credits for the following Tennessee counties as primary or secondary:

Sullivan, Sevier, Jefferson, Knox, Unicoi, Greene, Washington, Hawkins, Hamblen, Cocke

The Black Creek Mitigation Bank comprises of 266 +/- acres located in Greene County, Tennessee. This site is located in the Nolichucky River Basin (HUC 06010108) and the Ridge and Valley Level III Ecoregion. 

This Bank was created to restore and improve the ecological functions that have been altered over the years with ditching, straightening, and farming. Due to these practices Black Creek is showing signs of inciting and downcutting. This restoration of the stream and wetlands will improve the stability of the land and improve the aquatic environment. By completing this the overall stability of Black Creek thus providing additional long term benefits to many of its tributaries as the Lick Creek Lower Watershed (060101080806) that is a subset of the Nolichucky River Basin.

Upon completion the Bank will service the Nolichucky River Basin (HUC 06010108) as a primary service area but may also service the Middle Tennessee-French Broad Watershed (HUC 060101), Ridge and Valley (67), and Blue Ridge (66) ecoregions.
