NAME OF APPLICANT: Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government, c/o Morris P. Hebert, Inc., Attn: William Cagle, 116 Venture Blvd., Houma, Louisiana 70360.

LOCATION OF WORK:  Located in Houma, Louisiana, within the 1-1B Forced Drainage System, in Terrebonne Parish, as shown on the attached drawings.  This project is located in the Terrebonne Basin (West Central Louisiana Coastal HUC 08090302).

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant is requesting a Department of the Army permit modification to an existing authorization to modify the operations plan of the existing 1-1B Forced Drainage System.  The proposed modification proposes to lower the pump down level of the system from the authorized -0.53 to -1.28 NAVD 88.  The proposed modification is being requested due to the area experiencing more frequent flooding events within the drainage system potentially due to coastal subsidence, increased development, and sea level rise. The permittee proposes to continue the current monitoring of the system which includes weekly staff gage readings, thalimede data recording downloads at pumping stations, ground water monitoring and vegetative monitoring (every 3 years) to ensure impacts to wetlands within the system are not occurring.  The permittee has stated that vegetative monitoring of the existing wetland conditions would be performed to provide a baseline dataset to see if any of the wetland habitat would be affected by the change in operations as proposed in this application over time.  No compensatory mitigation is anticipated at this time for this proposed modification.
