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

LOCATION OF WORK: Hanson Canal, near Bayou Black in Section 34, T17S-R16E, near Houma, Louisiana, in Terrebonne Parish, within the Terrebonne Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08090302), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 29.602094 N, Longitude -90.860436 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to construct and maintain a pumping station, a swing gate and tie-in levees in and adjacent to the Hanson Canal to pump the water from Bayou Black which is one of the drainage channels for Chacahoula-Gibson watershed area.  The project also includes the removal of an old tainter gate along with dredging of the existing drainage canal.  An access road from the east side of the pump station is also proposed in the project.  Approximately 24,000 cubic yards of material will be excavated and used on site as fill.  Additionally, 1,180 cubic yards of concrete, crushed stone and rock will be hauled in for the construction of the access roads and tie-in levees.  It is anticipated that the proposed action will impact approximately 5.8 acres of wetlands due to the construction of the access roads and tie-in levees.

It is presumed that the applicant has designed the project to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  The alternative of selecting of Hanson Canal for the construction of a pump station is the most feasible as it is the only canal that can connect the water flowing into Bayou Black to Intracoastal Waterway which flows into the Gulf of Mexico. Also, the area between Bayou Black and Intracoastal Waterway are freshwater marshlands. Construction of a canal would lead to additional wetland impacts over a large area which would not be economically feasible.  The applicant will compensate for unavoidable wetland impacts by purchasing credits from an approved mitigation bank.
