Since 1994, Stream Wetland Services, L.L.C. (SWS) has provided a multitude of wetland restoration and mitigation services for a wide range of clients and their multifaceted projects. SWS established some of first Wetland Mitigation Banks in the State of Louisiana. To date, SWS manages 10 Mitigation Banks and multiple Permittee Responsible Mitigation Sites as well as an NRDA (Natural Resource Damage Assessment) site.
In 1997, SWS continued its pursuit of wetland restoration when it started one of the first licensed wetland plant nurseries in the State. To date, this nursery has produced over 2 million individual wetland plants that have been utilized in restoration efforts along Coastal Louisiana and Texas. In 2005, SWS’s nursery expanded its capacity with the construction of 9,000 square feet of greenhouses and has continued to increase its footprint with the expansion of previously established containerized propagation ponds and the associated infrastructure needs.
