NAME OF APPLICANT:  Donald Ott, c/o Howard Nass of Gulf South Research Corporation, 8081 Innovation Park Drive, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70820.   

LOCATION OF WORK:  In Section 43, T4S-R4E, approximately 6 miles west of Pine Grove, Louisiana, in St. Helena Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08080202), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.685675 N, Longitude    -90.845304 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 housing development to include driveways, yard space and drainage infrastructure.  Approximately 1,323 cubic yards of earthen material and approx. 312 cubic yards of aggregate material would be hauled in and deposited to achieve grade elevation requirements. Approximately 164 cubic yards will be excavated and deposited on site. The proposed project is situated on an approximately 4.08-acre tract that has been determined to contain wetlands.  Of this, approximately 0.6 acres of wetlands would be permanently impacted and 0.08 acres of wetlands would be temporarily impacted in construction of the development.   

     The applicant has designed the project to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to aquatic resources by including design features to prevent sediment runoff and minimize direct impacts to wetlands onsite and by utilizing non jurisdictional areas for staging and workspaces.  Any further reduction would limit usage of the property and, therefore function, deeming the project impracticable. 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.  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to mitigate in-kind wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed
