NAME OF APPLICANT: Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana (CPRA), Attn: Justin Merrifield, Post Office Box 44027, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70804

LOCATION OF WORK: Located in Timbalier Bay, near Port Fourchon, Louisiana, located in Lafourche Parish, as shown on the enclosed drawings (Latitude 29.06717 N Longitude -90.32224 W). This project is located in Barataria Basin (East Central Louisiana Coastal HUC 08090301).


The applicant is requesting a Department of the Army permit

authorization for the Restoration of East Timbalier Island and West Belle Headland Project

(CPRA project TE-118) through beach and dune fill placement utilizing offshore sand material

located in federal waters.  The project also entails the construction of back-barrier marsh

habitat utilizing mixed sediment from state waters.  The project also proposes to create a feeder

beach along West Belle Headland to help provide sediment to nourish the shoreline and renourishment

of the previously constructed West Belle Pass Project (CPRA Project TE-52).  The

project is located southwest of Port Fourchon, Louisiana, in Lafourche Parish.  The project has

been designed to restore the geomorphic form and function of the barrier island features at East

Timbalier Island and West Belle Pass Headland to provide and protect critical habitats. 

Approximately 28,861,042 cubic yards of native waterbottom material would be dredged

(hydraulic cutterhead dredge and hopper dredge) and placed as fill for barrier island, dune, and

marsh platform restoration/creation activities.  Approximately 1,613 acres of beach, dune, and

marsh habitat are proposed to be created as a result of the fill placement.  Approximately 1,583

acres of waterbottoms would be impacted through dredging activities at the borrow sites. The

applicant has claimed that the project has been designed to avoid and minimize direct and

secondary adverse wetland impacts to the maximum extent practicable. The applicant is

proposing that the project derived benefits and habitat creation would outweigh any detrimental

impacts to wetland areas as a result of project implementation.  Compensatory mitigation

requirements are not anticipated.
