Hydrologic Unit Codes: 08090100 Lower Mississippi River - New Orleans and 080900301 East Central Louisiana Coastal.

CHARACTER OF WORK: Clear, grade, excavate, and deposit fill for a 200 acre bulk liquid export terminal facility including: tank storage area/s with supporting infrastructure, dock, additional rail spurs, and rail off-loading facility.

The proposed 200 acre parcel was originally part of Department of the Army permit authorization for RAM Terminals, LLC.
