Expiration date: 12/23/2017

NAME OF APPLICANT:  North Lafourche Levee District, c/o Kee Environmental Services, LLC, Attn: Earl Eues, P.O. Box 3236, Houma, Louisiana 70361

LOCATION OF WORK:  In the 40/80 Arpent Canal, East Theriot Canal, Sam Foret Canal, Halpin Canal, and Laurel Valley Canal, south of Lake Boeuf, approximately 4.5 miles northwest of Raceland, Louisiana, in Lafourche Parish, within the Barataria Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08090301), as shown on the attached drawings. 

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to bucket dredge and hydraulically spray dredge for drainage and wetland improvements near Raceland, Louisiana in Lafourche Parish.  Some of the material will be placed in non-wetland agricultural areas with the remainder being sprayed as a slurry consisting of 30% solid material and 70% water into forested and herbaceous wetlands for nourishment.  The material will be limited to six (6) inches deep in herbaceous wetlands and three (3) inches deep in forested wetland areas.  Approximately 12,527 cubic yards of material will be dredged and place into 6.6 acres non-wetland areas and approximately 237,160 cubic yards material will be spray dredged into approximately 152 acres of forested and herbaceous wetlands.         

A Preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would directly impact approximately 96 acres of jurisdictional water bottoms and temporarily impact approximately 152 acres of forested and herbaceous wetlands.  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.
