NAME OF APPLICANT:  South Louisiana Fill Materials, LLC, c/o Pangaea Conservation & Compliance, LLC, Post Office Box 40345, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70835.

LOCATION OF WORK:  Within the Mississippi River Basin, in the Lower Mississippi River – Baton Rouge hydrologic unit (HUC 08070100); in the Mississippi River, left descending bank, mile 152, near Vacherie, Louisiana, in St. James Parish.

 CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested a modification and time extension to an existing sand dredging permit.  Modifications include increasing the previously authorized dredge area and an additional stockpile area.  Under this proposal, the dredging area in the River will be increased from the previously authorized 65 acres to 118 acres.  Approximately 200,000 cubic yards of material will be dredged per month via suction dredge.  The material will be placed in the previously authorized dredge sand pit for dewatering.  After dewatering, it will be transferred to a stockpile or directly to trucks for commercial sale.  Approximately 15.9 acres of the proposed 16.2-acre stockpile area was previously authorized as a dirt pit.  This area was previously cleared and surrounded by levees.  The applicant proposes to excavate a maximum of 2,000 cubic yards/month from the 28.66 acres of previously authorized dirt pits and stockpile the sand in this area.  The applicant has designed the project such that the modifications are located within the previously-authorized footprint.  To minimize impacts to adjacent water/wetlands, appropriate BMP’s will be implemented.  Should compensatory mitigation be required for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to purchase wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed.
