NAME OF APPLICANT:  South Louisiana Methanol LP, c/o PPM Consultants, Inc., Attn: Tim Powers, 7936 Office Park Boulevard, Suite A, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70809.  

 LOCATION OF WORK: On the Mississippi River, RDB, mile 161.5, approximately 0.7 mile south of Romeville, Louisiana, in St. James, Louisiana, in St James Parish, within the Barataria Basin, East-Central Louisiana Coastal, in hydrologic unit (HUC 08090301), as shown on the attached drawings.   

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate, and place fill and aggregate material to construct and maintain a methanol production facility and marine terminal which will include the construction of a barge dock, heavy haul Mississippi River levee and LA Hwy 18 crossing/ramp, barge mooring structures, an effluent discharge line, removal of an existing dock, and dredging.  Additionally, the complex will include access roads, administrative buildings, heavy haul roads, two natural gas pipelines, an overhead Entergy power line, underground utilities, and a raised pipe rack crossing LA Hwy 18 and the Mississippi River levee.  The proposed project is situated on an approximately 1,273-acre site that has been determined to contain jurisdictional forested and herbaceous wetlands and other waters of the U.S.   Approximately 1,114,054.00 cubic yards material will be excavated and placed back on site, and approximately 666,073.00 cubic yards of gravel, concrete, rock, and earthen fill material will be hauled in and used as fill for the project.   

 A Preliminary analysis has determined that there are no wetlands on the protected side of the levee within the project area but there are some other waters of the U.S. that will not be impacted.  The proposed project would directly impact approximately 0.33 acre of jurisdictional herbaceous batture wetlands and approximately 0.12 acre of jurisdictional forested batture wetlands.  Additionally, approximately 0.39 acre of jurisdictional herbaceous batture wetlands will be temporarily impacted by board mats during construction.  Approximately 6 acres of Mississippi River waters bottoms will be temporarily impacted by dredging for barge access to the facility.  Approximately one acre of the Mississippi River will be impacted by the new dock structure.  It is anticipated that the proposed project would have no impact on adjacent wetlands.
