Sheboygan County purchases Amsterdam Dunes

The Sheboygan County Board on Tuesday unanimously approved the purchase of more than 330 acres of lakeside forest, dunes and wetlands in the Town of Holland...
The Amsterdam Dunes area will also become a wetland mitigation bank, which could be a valuable source of revenue for the county. State law requires communities or businesses that harm natural wetlands in the construction of roads or other projects to replace those wetlands elsewhere.
For every acre harmed, 1 1/2 acres must be created or restored. Communities that don't have wetland areas can buy "wetland mitigation credits" from communities that do.
Sheboygan County has purchased credits — which currently go for $50,000 each — in the past from places like Ashland County in northern Wisconsin. By having a wetland mitigation bank in Sheboygan, Payne said the county will be better able to more cost effectively do public projects and better poised to do private sector projects.
