NAME OF APPLICANT:  Ascension Parish, c/o ELOS Environmental, LLC, Attn: Brian Fortson, 43177 East Pleasant Ridge Road, Hammond, Louisiana 70403.


LOCATION OF WORK:  Located along at approximate address of 36000 Alligator Bayou Road, in Section 28, Township 8 South, Range 2 East, near the confluence of Fish Bayou and Bayou Manchac, near Prairieville, Louisiana, located in Ascension Parish, as shown on the enclosed drawings (Latitude 30.3237 N Longitude -91.0179 W).  This project is located in the Pontchartrain Basin (Amite River HUC 08070202).


CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant is requesting a Department of the Army permit authorization for the installation and maintenance of a drainage control structure comprised of two (2) (12-foot x 12-foot) box culverts with sluice gates and rock armoring on either side.  The proposed structure is proposing to connect Bluff Swamp to Bayou Manchac and is located along Alligator Road.  The project proposes to help improve drainage of the Bluff Swamp through restoring the conveyance of Fish Bayou into Bayou Manchac through the box culverts.  Sluice gates would be installed on the box culverts to help control the flow from Bluff Swamp into Bayou Manchac events during flood events when water elevations within Bayou Manchac are low enough to open the structure and to prevent backwater flooding from Bayou Manchac into Bluff Swamp during high water events.  Approximately 0.08 acre of jurisdictional forested wetlands and 0.1 acre of jurisdictional Other Waters of the United States would be directly impacted as a result of project implementation.  Approximately 586 cubic yards of rip rap material, 400 cubic yards of clay material, and 256 cubic yards of gravel/asphalt material would be placed as fill material during project implementation.  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.  The applicant has stated that all impacts to jurisdictional wetlands would be mitigated through the purchase of mitigation bank credits at a Corps approved mitigation bank.
