Frank Newell, 700 Papworth Avenue, Suite 202, Metairie, Louisiana 70005.

Location of Work: On the left descending bank of the Mississippi River, at mile marker 43.5 above Head of Passes and adjacent to the Bohemia Control Structure in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, as shown on the enclosed drawings.

Latitude: 29.530278, Longitude: -89.729167

Hydrologic Unit Code: 08090100 – Lower Mississippi – New Orleans

08090203 – Eastern Louisiana Coastal

Character of Work: The applicant proposes to install and maintain 360 linear feet of steel sheet pile and 15,000 cubic yards of rock rip rap in order to halt channel scour in the Bohemia Spillway and water flow into Breton Sound. If constructed as proposed, approximately 0.75 acres of Waters of the U.S. would be impacted. Work for Phase 1 would include six soil borings/cone penetrometer test soundings and two water gauges. PPG maintains that Phase 1 will be followed by future phases to repair and rehabilitate the Bohemia Control Structure to restore flow and salinity control.

Preliminary review has determined that no wetlands would be impacted by construction and maintenance of the proposed closure; therefore, no compensatory mitigation has been proposed at this time. Compensatory mitigation could be considered later in the review if it’s determined that construction of the proposed project would directly impact unavoidable jurisdictional wetland areas.
