NAME OF APPLICANT:  Tony Palermo, 2713 Maplewood Drive, Sulphur, Louisiana.

LOCATION:  Project located at Latitude 30.308936, Longitude -93.361298, in the community of Sulphur, in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.

     The work described below was partially completed prior to obtaining a Department of the Army permit and was in violation of Section 301 of the Clean Water Act.  All legal issues concerning the unauthorized work have been deferred.

DESCRIPTION:   Department of the Army (DA) permit, MVN-1998-02254-WMM, was originally issued to Palvest Incorporated, on November 17, 1998.  The company Palvest Incorporated is owned by Tony Palermo, and he has submitted this application for permit re-authorization.  The original DA permit was issued to clear, grub, excavate, and deposit fill to develop residential sites with associated roadways, utilities and drainage infrastructure in the proposed Shady Oaks Subdivision.  The permit expired on November 30, 2003, and the applicant subsequently began the work activity after the permit had expired.  The applicant is requesting the original permit be issued without any proposed modifications to the original authorization.  The applicant previously purchased 27.5 acres of bottomland hardwoods as compensatory mitigation for the original authorization.  The Corps would reevaluate the impacts and determine, at the end of this review, if any additional mitigation is required as a result of this permit re-authorization.

     The applicant may be required to fully or partially restore the project site to pre-project conditions, if issuance of a permit is determined to be contrary to the overall public interest.
