NAME OF APPLICANT:  Valero Refining – New Orleans, LLC, ATTN: Stantec Consulting, LLC, ATTN: Ms. Lindsay Grisson, at 1615 Poydras, Suite 850, New Orleans, Louisiana  70112. 

LOCATION OF WORK:  Located at 14902 River Road, on the left descending bank of the Mississippi River, approximately 125 miles above the Head of Passes, in Goodhope, Louisiana, in St. Charles Parish, as shown on the attached drawings. 

HUC:  08090100; Lower Mississippi River – New Orleans, 08090203; Eastern Coastal Louisiana 

CHARACTER OF WORK:  To install a new dock and expand an existing dock at an existing St. Charles Refinery in Goodhope, Louisiana. The work will include a piperack along the batture, modifications to an existing upstream dock and associated infrastructure.  No dredging will occur.  Temporary impacts to wetlands via equipment access and matting will occur to approximately 12.4 acres and a permanent conversion of forested wetland to herbaceous wetland will occur to 1.2 acres due to the elevated piperack and access road maintenance.  The riprap, pilings and associated walkways and moorings, and the maintained ROW for the new road and piperack will result in a permanent impact to 0.5 acres of wetlands and 0.2 acres of other waters.  The applicant proposes to purchase credits from a mitigation bank to offset any unavoidable losses to wetland functions caused by project implementation.
