Miller Farm is one of three wetland mitigation bank sites included in the Northern Virginia Regional Environmental Bank (NVREB), owned and operated by Angler Environmental. The Miller Farm Wetland Bank Site is comprised of over 18 acres of mixed palustrine forested (PFO) and emergent (PEM) wetland habitat situated within the floodplain of Town Run. Historically, the spring fed surface hydrology within the project area was drained with agricultural ditching and drainage tile to increase cattle pasture. These agricultural practices were neutralized as part of the wetland design, which incorporated low profile surface berms to capture the surface hydrology. Existing vegetation was preserved where appropriate to increase seed sources and the entire wetland was replanted with woody vegetation after construction. All wetland design and construction was performed by Angler Environmental, who continues to monitor and maintain the site for ecological success.
