NAME OF APPLICANT: Byron E. Talbot Contractors, Inc., c/o Kee Environmental Services L.L.C., Attn: Earl Eues, Post Office Box 3236, Houma, Louisiana 70361.

LOCATION OF WORK: On the right descending bank of the Mississippi River at MP 152.4, above head of passes, and on LA Hwy 18, in Fietel, Louisiana, in St. James Parish, within the Lower Mississippi River Basin- Baton Rouge in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070100), as shown on the attached drawings.

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to suction dredge approximately 18 acres of Mississippi River water bottom for sand to be placed in a 7- acre existing borrow pit in the batture. Trucks using an existing road for access will be loaded to transport sand for sale to future construction projects. Approximately 1,200,000 cubic yards of dredged material will be moved from the river to the borrow pit. A preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would directly impact approximately 18 acres of Mississippi River water bottom from dredging and approximately 7 acres of other waters of the U.S. from the deposition of dredged material within the borrow.
