The Tampa Bay Mitigation Bank

The Tampa Bay Mitigation Bank (TBMB) provides pre-approved mitigation opportunities to projects located in the Tampa Bay Basin (portions of Hillsborough, Pinellas, Manatee, and Pasco Counties). Click here for our Mitigation Service Area. This is a cost-effective and convenient way to provide mitigation required for your project. Please review the TBMB project description which provides detailed information regarding the methodology used to create the bank. The mitigation bank is highly successful with nearly complete creation and restoration of freshwater, oligohaline, and estuarine habitats. See current photographs of the site. The Florida Audubon Society regularly visits the mitigation bank to view the numerous local birds utilizing the site.
