NAME OF APPLICANT: Rockhurst, LLC, c/o Hydrik Wetlands Consultants, Attn: Mike Henry, 2323 Hwy 190 East, Suite 2, Hammond, Louisiana 70401.

LOCATION OF WORK: Within Dumplin Creek, Section 24, T6S-R3E, at the intersection of Walker North Road and Corbin Avenue, in Walker, Louisiana, in Livingston Parish, within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings.  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 since been deferred. 

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to resolve an unauthorized activity which included work to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill for the re-route of Dumplin Creek and the construction and maintenance of a 111 lot residential subdivision (Isabella Lakes) with appurtenances and utility infrastructure.  The subdivision will include homes, driveways, greenspace, sidewalks, three (3) storm water detention ponds, and ingress egress.  Approximately 15,000 cubic yards of earthen native material has been excavated and re-deposited on site 2 to achieve required grade elevation requirements.  The roposed project is situated on an approximate 37-acre tract that has been determined to contain approximately 10.55 acres of forested wetlands and 0.31 of an acre of other waters of the US.  All 10.55 acres of forested wetlands and 0.31 of an acre of other waters of the US would be used in construction of the subdivision.

It has been determined that the proposed project has already directly impacted approximately 10.55 acres of forested wetlands and 0.31 of an acre of other waters of the US. 

The applicant stated that they have 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 deem the project impracticable.  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to mitigate in-kind wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the basin of impact. 

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