Location: Latitude: 30.199363 /Longitude: -93.161982

Hydrologic Unit Code: 08080206 – Lower Calcasieu. LA.

CHARACTER OF WORK:  Calcasieu Parish Police Jury was issued a permit to clear, grub and grade approximately 7.8 acres to construct new facilities for the existing Calcasieu Parish Juvenile Justices Services Center on December 7, 2017.  Existing structures and facilities will be demolished during this development.  The development consists of several new structures and facilities, an outdoor area, and two storm water retention ponds.  A total wetland impact of 0.41 acre was authorized under the original permit.  To mitigate unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant originally contracted with Delta Land Services, L.L.C. for acquiring 0.6 acre of coastal prairie mitigation at the Moss Lake Mitigation Bank.

A modification to the permit received on December 7, 2017, is being proposed for the redesign of the retention ponds and the entrance road design on the east side of the facility.  Additionally, Calcasieu Parish Police Jury proposes to clear, grub, and grade forested areas on the tract to better maintain security at the facility.   The proposed activities will permanently impact an additional 1.7 acres of wetlands in the project area.  The applicant has proposed to contract with an approved mitigation bank in the project service area for the appropriate mitigation credits prior to permit issuance.
