CHARACTER OF WORK:  Rebuild and maintain an existing 69kV T-Line from the Lake Charles bulk substation to the Chlomal substation, and construct and maintain a laydown yard to store construction equipment.  The east-west section (poles 1-12) will be rebuilt in place, no expansion of the ROW will be needed for this section.  The north-south portion will be expanded from 100’ to 150’ (25’ on each side) and a line will be re-built to the west of the existing line.  All wooded vegetation within the proposed ROW will be mulched to a depth of no more than 4”.  The 41 new poles will be augured to a depth of 15-30’ and the spoil (379 cubic yards total) will be spread near the base of each pole at a depth not to exceed 3”.  Project implementation would impact approximately 6.4 acres of bottomland hardwoods, to be compensated through the purchase of mitigation credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank, and 32.7 acres of herbaceous wetlands, to be evaluated after a one-year growing season with potential for further compensatory mitigation.
