Red Bluff Mitigation Bank is a 5,515-acre mitigation bank that is located on a 6,392 -acre tract adjacent to the New and Wright Rivers in Jasper County, SC. The Bank is in the Lower Savannah River and Calibogue Sound/Wright River watersheds, 8-digit Hydrologic Unit Codes 03060109 and 03060110 . The Bank is located within the Southern Coastal Plain Level III Ecoregion.

Overall, the Bank will protect approximately 5,132 acres of jurisdictional aquatic resources (streams and wetlands). The Bank will also protect approximately 382 acres of non-jurisdictional lands (uplands) occurring adjacent to the marsh that will be preserved, enhanced and restored. that contribute to the ecological functioning of jurisdictional aquatic resources within the Bank. An average 150-foot upland buffer will be placed around all salt marsh wetlands included within the bank.

The project will eventually restore and enhance approximately 231 acres of freshwater wetlands, 27 acres of tidal wetlands, and 4,139 linear feet of freshwater streams. In addition to restoration and enhancement, the project will perpetually protect an additional 163 acres of freshwater wetlands, 4,678 acres of tidal wetlands, and 905 linear feet of freshwater streams in the Beaufort/Jasper County watershed.
