NAME OF APPLICANT: Ingram Barge Company, c/o Lanier & Associates Consulting Engineers Inc., 4101 Magazine Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70115

LOCATION OF WORK:  In the Mississippi River, left descending bank, at MP 226, in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, within the Mississippi River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070100), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.381389 N, Longitude - 91.223611 W).   

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to install a new barge fleeting operation to include the placement of 800 cubic yards of rip rap for revetment repair.  The operation will be broken into 4 separate fleets.  From downriver going up, the first fleet will have 10 tiers of barges.  The second fleet will have 7 tiers of barges.  The third fleet will have 6 tiers of barges and the fourth fleet will have 7 tiers of barges.  The barges will be secured using steel monopiles and a string of spar barges.  During normal river stage conditions (+16' and above on the Baton Rouge gauge) each tier will be 9 barges wide which includes the spar barges.  During low water river stage conditions (below +16' at the Baton Rouge gauge) each tier will be reduced down to 5 barges wide, which includes the spar barges, in order to allow for additional channel space for deep draft vessel traffic. 

The applicant stated that the proposed project has been designed to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable which are limited to the placement of 800 cubic yards of rip rap to stabilize the bank.
