NAME OF APPLICANT:  Waste Management, c/o Hydrik, Attn: Michael Henry, 2323 Louisiana Highway 190 East, Suite 2, Hammond, Louisiana 70401.


LOCATION OF WORK:  Located in Sections 28, 29, 32, & 33, Township 6 South, Range 4 East, adjacent to existing Woodside Drive Landfill, located on an approximate 133.7-acre site, at 29340 Woodside Drive, near Walker, Louisiana, located in Livingston Parish, as shown on the enclosed drawings (Latitude 30.492047 N Longitude -90.824703 W).  This project is located in the Pontchartrain Basin (Amite River HUC 08070202).


CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant is requesting a modification to a previously authorized Department of the Army permit authorization covering the expansion of an existing landfill (Waste Management Woodside Drive Landfill).  The permit modification involves the clearing, grading, road construction and drainage improvements associated with the approximate 133.7-acre of borrow excavation required for the expansion of the facility.  The excavation of the additional borrow material is required to expand the height of existing waste cells allowing for daily and long term liner and fill cover placement over a 35 year period.  The original permit authorization was issued on December 17, 2004. Approximately 3,160,000 cubic yards of native material would be excavated and placed in jurisdictional areas as a result of project implementation.  The excavation will not occur all at once but over a 35 year period.  The excavated fill material will primarily be utilized for existing landfill areas as daily cover material and the relocation of Other Waters of the US and construction of roads and appurtenances.  Approximately 31.91 acres of jurisdictional forested mixed pine bottomland hardwood wetlands would be directly impacted as a result of clearing and excavation.  Approximately 3.39 acres of jurisdictional forested mixed pine bottomland hardwood wetlands would be impacted from fill placement as a result of the proposed drainage ditch relocation and maintenance servitude.  Approximately 0.3 acre of jurisdictional Other Waters of the United States (OWOUS) would be permanently impacted as a result of excavation activities.  The jurisdictional wetlands that have been previously impacted as a result of the original permit authorization (approximately 66.54 acres) have been previously mitigated.  Approximately 133.47 acres of jurisdictional wetlands are to be avoided from the proposed expansion.   The applicant has claimed that the project has been designed to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse wetland impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  The applicant has also claimed that the proposed placement of the borrow areas was designed to provide the required borrow material and volume of fill while avoiding as much of the wetlands as reasonably possible.  The applicant is proposing to utilize best management practices during and after the construction phase of the project.  The applicant is proposing to compensate for the unavoidable impact by proposing a Permittee Responsible Mitigation Plan (PRMP) that is currently being coordinated and designed and will be provided to the US Army Corps of Engineers New Orleans District, Regulatory Branch once completed.
