NAME OF APPLICANT:  Hidden Lakes Estates LLC, c/o D&S Environmental Services, Inc., PO Box 510 French Settlement, Louisiana 70733.   

LOCATION OF WORK:  On and west of Joe May Road, just east of Louisiana Highway 16, Section 26, T7S-R3E, in Denham Springs, Louisiana, Livingston Parish, within the Amite River Watershed in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings.   

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The residential subdivision described herein was previously authorized as MVN-2015-02179-CG issued to Hidden Lakes Properties, LLC on July 8, 2016 for the construction of a residential subdivision (Hidden Lakes Estates).  The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to modify this authorization and clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to include an additional entrance off of Joe May Road as well as 5 additional lots with houses, driveways and green spaces to accommodate each residence, common green space areas, utilities and drainage infrastructure, increasing the total lots for the development to 321. 

The modification would result in a reduction of construction related impacts to approx. 0.17 acres of waters of the US, but would increase fill related impacts to approx. 1.2 acres of jurisdictional forested wetlands and approx. 0.18 acres of waters of the US.  

The applicant has designed the project to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  Any further reduction in the proposed development would be cost prohibitive 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.
