NAME OF APPLICANT:  Terrebonne Port Commission, Inc., c/o GIS Engineering, LLC, Attn: Mohan Menon, 450 Laurel Street, Suite 1500, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70801

LOCATION OF WORK:  Located along an existing slip on Dickson Road, within and along the left descending bank of the Houma Navigation Canal, at the existing Louisiana Ship (LA Ship) Facility, near Houma, Louisiana, located in Terrebonne Parish, as shown on the enclosed drawings (Latitude 29.5468 N Longitude -90.7001 W).  This project is located in the Terrebonne Basin (West Central Louisiana Coastal HUC 08090302). 

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant is requesting a Department of the Army permit authorization for the construction of two bulkheads at the Louisiana Ship Facility (LA Ship) in Houma.  One bulkhead totaling approximately 1500 linear feet is proposed to be constructed along the left descending bank of the Houma Navigation Canal, and another approximate 995-foot bulkhead is proposed to be constructed along the northern bankline of the existing Munson Slip.  The two areas adjacent to the proposed bulkheads are proposed to be dredged to -20 feet (Houma Navigation Canal) and -15 feet (Munson Slip). The dredged areas are located up to approximately 100 feet from the proposed bulkheads and would slope upwards to meet the existing mud line.  Approximately 190,300 cubic yards of native waterbottoms would be hydraulically dredged and placed in a previously authorized spoil disposal area located to the northeast of the Houma Navigation Canal bulkhead site and north of the Munson slip site.  Approximately 49,700 cubic yards of hauled in materials (concrete, crushed stone/gravel, sand material) would be placed onsite during bulkhead construction as a result of project implementation.  Approximately 9.6 acres of jurisdictional waterbottoms would be impacted by the dredging portions of this project.   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 to utilize best management practices during and after the construction phase of the project and that the project will receive approval from all appropriate drainage and sewage agencies.  It is not anticipated that this project will directly impact any jurisdictional wetlands that have not been previously authorized to be impacted (dredging disposal area previously mitigated for under MVN-1997-178-CT).
