NAME OF APPLICANT:  Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana (CPRA), Attn: Justin Merrifield, Post Office Box 44027, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70804.

LOCATION OF WORK:  Located in Lake Pelto and Terrebonne Bay, south of Cocodrie, Louisiana, located in Terrebonne Parish, as shown on the enclosed drawings (Latitude 29.06678 N Longitude -90.48855 W).  This project is located in Terrebonne Basin (West Central Louisiana Coastal HUC 08090302).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant is requesting a Department of the Army permit authorization for the Restoration of Timbalier Island and Trinity East Islands through beach and dune fill placement utilizing offshore sand material located in federal waters. The project is a part of the Terrebonne Basin Barrier Island and Beach Nourishment Restoration Project (TE-143) located south of Cocodrie, Louisiana, in Terrebonne Parish.  The project has been designed to restore the geomorphic and ecologic form and function of the barrier island features at Timbalier Island and Trinity East Island to provide and protect critical habitats.  The project proposes to add sand material in areas most susceptible to breaching and provide benefits through the restoration and sustaining of important coastal habitats such as nesting habitat for numerous shorebird species.  The applicant has stated that they have designed this project to be synergistic with currently implemented and future restoration projects.  Approximately 16,130,359 cubic yards of native waterbottom material would be dredged (hydraulic cutterhead dredge and hopper dredge) and placed as fill for barrier island, dune, and marsh platform restoration/creation activities.  Approximately 981 acres of beach, dune, and marsh habitat are proposed to be created as a result of the fill placement.  Approximately 921 acres of waterbottoms would be impacted through dredging activities at the borrow sites.  Approximately 91 acres of wetlands would be impacted as a result of the fill placement.  Created beach and dune habitat and marsh platform habitat are proposed to be replanted with appropriate native ecospecies.  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 is proposing that the project derived benefits and habitat creation would outweigh any detrimental impacts to wetland areas as a result of project implementation.  Compensatory mitigation requirements are not anticipated.
