NAME OF APPLICANT:  Dennis Howze, c/o Sharp Bros Construction 27132 Hwy 22 Springfield, Louisiana 70394.

LOCATION OF WORK:  Amite River, left descending bank, in Section 11, T9S-R4E, at 18417 La Trace Road French Settlement, Louisiana, in Livingston Parish, within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070204), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.276397 N, Longitude -90.943967 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to replace an existing bulkhead and to construct a new bulkhead, two wharves and a covered boat shed.  The new section of bulkhead will be approximately 50 feet long. Approximately 96.5 cubic yards of material will be dredged from beneath the boat shed area and be used as backfill behind the new bulkhead.  The boat shed and piers will be constructed by driving piles using a dragline excavator and will extend channel ward approximately 30 feet.  A preliminary analysis has determined that wetlands may be present at the project site; however, extent of coverage and impacts is undetermined at this time pending wetland delineation. It is anticipated that impacts to special aquatic sites will be negligible. 

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.
