NAME OF APPLICANT: Bridgeline Holdings, LP, c/o James Vincent of GeoEngineers, Inc., 11955 Lakeland Park Blvd., Baton Rouge, LA 70809.

LOCATION OF WORK: In the Mississippi River, Section 37, T6S-R1E, Mississippi River RM 233.9 north of Port Allen, Louisiana, in East Baton Rouge and West Baton Rouge Parishes, within the Mississippi River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070201), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.507780 N, Longitude -91.201000 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The work described herein was previously authorized for Chevron Pipe Line Company on September 15, 2010, extended on May 24, 2013. The applicant has procured the property and has requested Department of the Army authorization to modify and complete the project to include temporary workspaces, temporary spoil areas and the Horizontal Directional Drill (HDD) of 2,900 linear feet of16-inch natural gas pipeline to a depth of minus 110-feet under the Mississippi River to replace the existing damaged 16-inch natural gas pipeline. Approximately 1,410 cubic yards of native material will be excavated and backfilled for the HDD installation.  Excavated material will be stockpiled and used as backfill upon successful completion of the project. A preliminary analysis has determined wetlands to be present at the project site; however, extent of coverage and impacts is undetermined at this time pending wetland delineation.

The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts by remaining within the previously authorized footprint of the worksite, restricting activity to previously developed areas and utilizing timber mats for equipment if necessary.  No impacts to wetlands have been proposed or are anticipated for this project.  As compensation for any unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to mitigate inkind wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed.
