Expiration date: 8/19/2018

NAME OF APPLICANT:  DR Horton Gulf Coast, c/o Michael Henry, Hydrik Wetlands Consultants, 2323 Highway 190 East, Suite 2, Hammond, LA 70401.   

LOCATION OF WORK:  On Jones Creek, Sections 20, 29 and 52, T7S-R2E, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in East Baton Rouge Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.416310 N, Longitude -91.025610 W).     

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct and maintain a residential development (The Lakes at Jones Creek Subdivision) to include roads, utilities and drainage infrastructure.  Approximately 463,870 cubic yards of native material would be excavated and redistributed on site to achieve required grade elevation requirements.  Approximately 90,000 cubic yards of concrete will be placed for construction. The proposed project is situated on an approximately 179-acre tract and would impact approximately 6.09 acres of jurisdictional wetlands and approximately 4.1 acres of Waters of the US through excavation and redistribution of fill material.    

     The applicant has designed the project to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts by proposing to utilize best management practices during and after the construction phase of the project and by modifying the existing drainage capacity on the site by expanding the existing ponds, constructing additional ponds and enhancing existing drainage conveyances. The project will receive approval from all appropriate drainage and sewage agencies. As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to use a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impact.
