MVN-1997-04474-CG

Published June 12, 2017
Expiration date: 7/1/2017

NAME OF APPLICANT: R.W. Day and Associates, c/o Hydrik Wetlands Consultants, Attn: Mike Henry, 2323 Hwy 190 East, Suite 2, Hammond, LA 70401

LOCATION OF WORK: On and west of Burbank Drive, Sections 75 and 76, Township 8 South, Range 1 East, near Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in East Baton Rouge Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in the Amite hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.364795, N, Longitude -91.137355 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The work described herein was previously authorized under the Department of the Army authorization MVN-1997-04474-CD. The applicant has requested a time extension and modification to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct and maintain a residential subdivision (Pelican Lakes Subdivision) to include apartments, parking lots, utilities and drainage infrastructure.  Approximately 45,000 cubic yards of earthen material would be excavated and redistributed to construct the detention ponds and to achieve required grade elevation requirements.  Approximately 400 cubic yards will be excavated from an existing jurisdictional canal and disposed of off-site.  The proposed project will result in impacts to approx. 5.08 acres of jurisdictional forested wetlands and approx. 2,508 linear feet of jurisdictional waters of the U.S. Approximately 7.22 acres of jurisdictional wetland impacts were authorized under the previous authorization. The proposed modification would include an additional 5.08 acres of impacts to wetlands and 1.14 acres of impacts to waters of the U.S.

The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts by avoiding 29.18 acres of forested wetlands and by utilizing appropriate erosion and siltation controls during construction, to avoid sediment runoff into adjacent wetlands and waterways.  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to mitigate in-kind wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed.
