NAME OF APPLICANT:  Livingston Parish Gravity Drainage District No. 2, c/o D&S Environmental Services, Post Office Box 510, French Settlement, Louisiana, 70733. 

LOCATION OF WORK:  Within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin, in the Amite River hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202); within a tributary to Middle Colyell Creek located in T5S-R3E, Sections 25 and 36; beginning at a point south of Tack Covington Road and extending approximately 1,042 feet downstream, near Watson, Louisiana, in Livingston Parish. 

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant proposes to clear impeding vegetation along a 15-foot corridor adjacent to an unnamed tributary of Middle Colyell Creek. The upper 6 inches will be excavated and crushed concrete placed at natural grade in wetlands to create a permanent access route.                Additionally, the unnamed tributary will be cleared of any obstructions, de-silted and re-shaped to the original shape.  Two laterals that intersect the tributary will also be de-silted, re-shaped, and lined with crushed concrete to prevent future erosion.  Excavated material will be distributed in non-wetlands on site with any excess material being placed in Livingston Parish Gravity Drainage District No. 2 maintenance yard. Approximately 0.2 acre of forested jurisdictional wetlands will be impacted by the maintenance corridor, while approximately 0.24 acre of jurisdictional waters will be impacted by ditch cleanout and re-shaping. 

The applicant has minimized the impacts as much as practicable.  Additionally, appropriate erosion control methods, including silt fencing, hay bales, seeding, etc., will be utilized during and after the construction to prevent impacts to adjacent property.  Crushed concrete will also be placed in lateral ditches will help to contain the sediment load and prevent excessive runoff. As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts the applicant proposes to purchase wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed.
