Since 1994, Land and Water Resources, Inc., in Rosemont, Illinois, has been a national
leader in creating, building, and managing wetland mitigation banks. As one of the
nation's first private mitigation bankers, LAWR received its first permit from the
Corps and Illinois Department of Natural Resources in 1994 for the nationally-acclaimed
Otter Creek Mitigation Bank in St. Charles, Illinois.
Currently LAWR and its affiliates operate permitted banks in Lake, Kane, Will, Rock
Island and Winnebago counties in Illinois; and in Weld County, Colorado. The service
area for the Rock Island County bank includes portions of Iowa and Illinois.
LAWR earned its proven track record by building strategic partnerships with landowners,
engineers, contractors, and restoration ecologists.
