(Anticipated mid 2023)

Cowpens Mitigation Bank is a 1,387-acre mitigation bank that is located on a 1,518-acre tract in Horry County, SC. The Bank is in the Waccamaw River watershed, 8-digit Hydrologic Unit Code 03040206. The Bank is located within the Middle Atlantic Coastal Plain Level III Ecoregion.
