NAME OF APPLICANT: Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government, c/o GIS Engineering, LLC, 2503 Petroleum Drive, Suite 110, Houma, Louisiana 70363

LOCATION OF WORK: In Bayou Petit Caillou on the upstream side from the existing floodgate in Section 94, T19S-R18E, near Chauvin, Louisiana, in Terrebonne Parish, within the Terrebonne Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08090302), as shown on the attacheddrawings (Latitude 29.387417 N, Longitude -90.617414 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to construct and maintain a floodgate adjacent to an existing floodgate.  The construction of the new floodgate will create a lock system to provide continuous access to marine vessels passing through the area when the downstream floodgate is closed.  It will prevent the flooding of habitable regions in the upper Bayou Petite Caillou watershed due to seasonal tides from the Gulf of Mexico, rainfall or storm events, hurricanes or from incidental storm surges.  The proposed project will involve the excavating approximately 24,200 cubic yards of material.  A coffer dam will be placed around the sector gate located in the center of the channel.  A temporary by-pass channel will be constructed in order to maintain the navigability of the channel while the floodgate is under construction.  It is anticipated that the proposed action will impact approximately 0.63 acres of waterbottoms.

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.
