NAME OF APPLICANT: Grand Isle Acquisitions, LLC, ℅ SPEC, LLC, Attn: Robert Potier, Post Office Box 80594, Lafayette, Louisiana 70598.


LOCATION OF WORK:  Near Caminada Bay within a vacant lot at 1851 Louisiana Highway 1, Grand Isle, Louisiana in Jefferson Parish, as shown on the enclosed drawings.


Latitude: 29.210797, Longitude: -90.032711

Hydrologic Unit Code: 08090301 – Lower Mississippi Region


CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant proposes to expand “Hurricane Hole Marina” which would include dredging and filling activities to accommodate land reclamation, 51 boat slips, and piers/wharves.  Project construction would result in dredging approximately 3.2 acres of non-vegetated waterbottoms (22,962 cubic yards) within the project footprint.  The dredged material, along with 1,000 cubic yards of crushed stone would be deposited within 1.3 acres of tidal wetlands for land reclamation.    


The applicant proposes to purchase 1.7 acres of compensatory mitigation credits from the Chef Menteur Mitigation Bank in order to offset the unavoidable impacts to jurisdictional wetlands associated with the proposed project.  The applicant utilized the Louisiana Wetlands Rapid Assessment Method (LRAM).  The LRAM is the New Orleans District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ compensatory mitigation calculation model.  The applicant’s proposed mitigation plan will only be considered after the sequence of mitigation (avoidance, minimization, compensation) is followed as directed in the Section 404(b)(1) guidelines.
