NAME OF APPLICANT:  Tellus Operating Group, c/o T. Baker Smith, LLC, Attn: Boyd Boswell,107 Global Circle, Lafayette, Louisiana  70503

LOCATION OF WORK:  Near Grand Bayou Canal section 10 and 15, T18S-R20E, approximately 4 miles southwest of the Larose, Louisiana, in Lafourche Parish, within the Terrebonne Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08090302), as shown on the attached drawings. 

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to excavate and place fill for access to install two (2) 6” flow lines and drill the proposed Badger Prospect Well Location.  Approximately 103,000 cubic yards of native water bottoms and marsh will be dredged and excavated.  Approximately 7.5 acres of water bottoms will be temporarily impacted by dredging and approximately 9 acres of water bottoms will be permanently filled at an elevation of 6 feet above the normal water elevation to encourage brackish marsh re-establishment.  In addition, approximately 4 acres of marsh will be permanently impacted by excavation and approximately 34 acres of marsh will receive 6 inches material by way of spray dredging for brackish marsh nourishment.       

A Preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would directly impact approximately 16.5 acres of jurisdictional water bottoms.  In addition, approximately 4 acres jurisdictional brackish marsh wetlands will be permanently impacted and approximately 34 acres of jurisdictional brackish marsh wetlands will be beneficially impacted in the form of marsh nourishment. 

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 watershed.
