NAME OF APPLICANT:  Livingston Parish, c/o Foret Environmental Services, Inc., 9040 Briarwood Place, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70809. 

LOCATION OF WORK: Within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin, in Amite River hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202). Beginning at the intersection of Louisiana Highway 16 and Cook raod, near Denham Springs, Louisiana, in Livingston Parish. 

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested authorization to clear, grade, and fill an area to allow for the widening of Cook Road, construction of a new bridge over Grey’s Creek, and construction of a turnaround at the intersection of Cook Road and LA-16. The proposed bridge will consist of an 84’ x 140’ slab span, pile-supported bridge. The new bridge and widening of Cook Road will result in impacts to 2.5 acres of jurisdictional wetlands and 1.3 acres of other waters.  For these impacts, the applicant has agreed to purchase wetland credits from a Corps approved bank located within the watershed of impact.

The newly improved Cook Road will tie into Juban Development, which was authorized by permit number MVN 2005-4490 CZ. The Juban development permit authorized a road extending throughout the property and ending aligned with Cook Road. This road is in the process of being relinquished from the permit from Juban Development and transferred to Livingston Parish. The road has been mostly constructed in conjunction with Juban Development.  However, the portion along the western boundary of the site has yet to be constructed.  Livingston Parish is now proposing to modify the unconstructed portion of the authorized road to include six 8’ x 7’ x 124’ concrete box culverts and fill at the crossing of the unnamed waterway. All wetland impacts within the boundary of the original authorization have been mitigated for. No additional wetland impacts will occur as a result of this modification. Thus, no additional mitigation will be assessed for the modification of the previously permitted road.  

The applicant has stated that the project has been designed to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable. Any further reduction was deemed impracticable. During construction, best management practices (BMP’s) will be implemented to prevent impacts to adjacent properties.
