MVN 2010-02959 CO

Published June 5, 2017
Expiration date: 6/25/2017

NAME OF APPLICANT:  Talos Energy, 500 Dallas Street, Suite 200, Houston, Texas 77002.


LOCATION OF WORK:  Within the Terrebonne Basin (HUC 08090302); in Lake Pelto, approximately 29 miles southwest of Chauvin, Louisiana, in Terrebonne Parish.


 CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested authorization to dredge an area to allow access to the existing Caillou Boca Tank Battery Facility.  Currently, the facility is almost inaccessible by barge due to shoaling.  The site will be accessed via existing channels.  Approximately 90,800 cubic yards of native material will be dredged and placed at the current marsh elevation of +2.5 feet NAVD88 to create back barrier marsh behind Whiskey Island.  Approximately 9.4 acres of non-vegetated water bottoms will be dredged and approximately 18.7 acres of water bottoms will be filled at heights conducive to marsh creation.  No impacts to vegetated wetlands are proposed.

No compensatory mitigation is anticipated.  Should compensatory mitigation be


required, the applicant proposes to purchase wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed.


It is presumed that the applicant has designed the project to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable. Any further reduction would limit usage of the property and, therefore function deeming the project impracticable.
