NAME OF APPLICANT: First Horizon, LLC, c/o Michael Henry, Hydrik, 2323 Highway 190 East, Suite 2, Hammond, Louisiana 70401. 

LOCATION OF WORK:  Within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin, in the Amite River hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202); located adjacent to and south of US Highway 190, approximately 0.9 mile east of its intersection with Louisiana Highway 16, near Denham Springs, Louisiana within Livingston Parish. 

The work described below was partially completed prior to obtaining a Department of the Army permit and was in violation of Section 301 of the Clean Water Act. All legal issues concerning the unauthorized work have since been deferred. 

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested authorization to clear, grade and fill a 58.1-acre tract to allow for construction of 221-lot residential subdivision, known as Middlebrook Place Subdivision. Approximately 110,221 cubic yards of native material will be excavated and placed on-site. A total of 9.3 acres of forested wetlands will be impacted by the proposed development.  Of the 9.3 acres, 0.5 acre was mechanically cleared without authorization. 

According to the applicant, the project has been designed to avoid and minimize direct and indirect wetland impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  Any further reduction, would not meet construction standards and Parish requirements.  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts the applicant proposes to purchase wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed. 

The applicant may be required to fully or partially restore the site to pre-project conditions if issuance of a permit is determined to be contrary to the public interest.
