NAME OF APPLICANT:  Matt Miller c/o: JESCO, Post Office Box 1324, Jennings, LA 70546.

LOCATION OF WORK: The work is to take place along River Oak Drive, at Latitude 30.227475, Longitude -92.631449, in the City of Jennings in the Parish of Jefferson Davis, LA. The project is located within Hydrologic Unit Code 08080201 and the Mermentau Watershed.

The work described below was partially completed prior to obtaining a Department of the Army permit and was in violation of Section 301 of the Clean Water Act.  All legal issues concerning the unauthorized work have been deferred.

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested a Department of the Army (DA) authorization to develop a pond on the property for cattle, recreation, and stormwater control. The applicant developed the project to control stormwater while developing a pond.  During construction, the levee impounded and slowed down the flow of stormwater which reduced erosion.  Approximately 125,000 cy of native material was excavated from the north side of the levee in the area of an unnamed ditch using a track excavator, and material was then deposited to construct the levee (maximum measurements: 18-foot-high, 75-foot-wide, and 500-foot-long) in wetlands and across the unnamed ditch. The levee was built with a stormwater overflow, to allow stormwater past the levee. The new levee is allegedly damming/ponding water in the ditch up stream.  As proposed, the project is anticipated to permanently impact 0.635 of an acre of PFO wetlands due to the work activities and placement of fill.  The applicant proposes to offset unavoidable wetland impacts by purchasing mitigation credits from a Corps-approved mitigation bank within the New Orleans District, if a DA permit is warranted.  

The applicant may be required to fully or partially restore the project site to pre-project conditions, if issuance of a permit as proposed is determined to be contrary to the overall public interest.
