Wetland Mitigation:
promoting and protecting Iowa's valuable wetlands

Iowa Agricultural Mitigation Bank, Inc. (IAMI) is a not-for-profit umbrella-type wetland mitigation bank that provides compensatory mitigation credits for impacts to farmed wetlands within identified service areas. The project was planned, developed and continues to be managed by EOR Iowa.

The goal of the IAMI is to provide an alternative, high-quality source of wetland mitigation credits in advance of their need for land improvement projects that result in impacts to farmed wetlands. The initial target area to be served includes the prairie pothole region of north central Iowa.

IAMI is managed by Iowa Agricultural Mitigation, Inc., an Iowa 501(c)(5) non-profit corporation formed in June 2010. The corporation’s Board of Directors is composed of seven members, including local government officials and natural resource professionals. In addition, the corporation has a non-voting planning committee composed of partner agency staff and advisers.
