NAME OF APPLICANT:  Livingston Parish Gravity Drainage District 1, c/o ELOS Environmental, LLC., Attn: Brian Fortson, 607 W. Morris Ave., Hammond, LA 70403.    

LOCATION OF WORK:  In a drainage conveyance on Pine Bluff Road in Section 47 Township 6 South, Range 2 East, in Denham Springs, Louisiana, in Livingston Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.505229 N,        Longitude -90.963386 W).   

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to excavate approx. 350 linear feet of the drainage conveyance to a maximum depth of 3 feet, widening the existing 3-foot waterway to a maximum width of 8-feet. Approximately 216 cubic yards of material will be excavated and hauled off site to a non-jurisdictional location for disposal. The proposed project is situated between a residence and a wooded tract and would impact approximately 0.04 acres of waters of the US. No impact to adjacent wetlands have been proposed.   

            The applicant has designed the project to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable. The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts to wetlands by conducting the excavation from an adjacent driveway and by placing excavated material directly into dump trucks for disposal at an off-site non-wetland location.  Compensatory mitigation will not be required as no impacts to jurisdictional wetlands are proposed.
