NAME OF APPLICANT: RaceTrac Petroleum Company, C/O David Templet of D&S Environmental Services, PO Box 510, French Settlement, Louisiana 70733

LOCATION OF WORK: On and east of Highway 22, just south of Interstate 10, Section 26, T10S-R3E, in Sorrento, Louisiana, in Ascension Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070204), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.168496 N, Longitude -90.878446 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct and maintain a commercial retail fuel station (RaceTrac Market Fuel Station) to include fuel pump islands, corresponding underground fuel storage tanks, parking, a stormwater detention basin and floodplain mitigation area with pertinent outfall, a sanitary sewer treatment unit, green space and ingress/egress access respectively. Approximately 809.11 cubic yards of earthen material, approx. 391.66 cubic yards of concrete material and approx. 481.53 cubic yards of lime treated base material would be placed to achieve required grade elevation requirements. The proposed project is situated on an approximately 3.60-acre tract that has been determined to contain jurisdictional wetlands and waters of the U.S. Approximately 1.53 acres of wetlands and approx. 0.04 acre of waters of the U.S. would be directly impacted by the development.

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. The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts to wetlands by utilizing appropriate erosion control methods during and after the construction phase to help prevent erosion and degradation of water quality or non-point source pollution onsite.  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to mitigate inkind wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed.
