NAME OF APPLICANT:  Amite River Basin Commission, c/o Volkert Inc., Attn: Anthony Evett, 7967 Office Park Blvd., Baton Rouge, LA  70809

LOCATION OF WORK:  At the confluence of the Amite River and the Amite River Diversion Canal, Section 9, T9S-R4E, approximately 1.5 miles southwest of French Settlement, Louisiana, in Ascension Parish, within the lake Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070204), as shown on the attached drawings.  

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to excavate and deposit rock to repair the existing weir and boat channel located between the Amite River and the Amite River Diversion Canal.  The existing structure has settled and been compromised by water pressure allowing too much water to enter the Amite River Diversion Canal.  The flow has been reduced in the Amite River causing sediment build up.  Approximately 23,900 cubic yards of rock would be hauled in and deposited to repair the boat channel raise the elevation of the structure.    

A Preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would directly impact approximately 4.2 acres of jurisdictional water bottoms. 

The applicant stated that they have designed the project to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  No jurisdictional wetlands will be impacted by this project.  The project will permanently impact “other waters of the U.S.” only.
