NAME OF APPLICANT: PriceCo West, c/o Hydrik Wetlands Consultants, Attn: Mike Henry, 2323 Hwy 190 East, Suite 2, Hammond, LA 70401.

LOCATION OF WORK: Tract of land on and south of Airline Highway in Sections 51 and 52, Township 8 South, Range 2 East, on the southeast corner of LA Highway 51 and Barringer Foreman Road in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in East Baton Rouge Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.360063 N, Longitude -91.017744 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct and maintain a mixed- use commercial development (Barringer Farms) to include 29 commercial structures, access roads, parking lots, utilities, and drainage infrastructure. Approximately 178,017 cubic yards of sand/silt material would be excavated and redistributed on site to construct drainage infrastructure and achieve required grade elevation requirements. The proposed project is situated on an approximately 84-acre tract that has been determined to include jurisdictional wetlands and waters of the US within the project boundary. Of this, approximately 4.41 acres of wetlands and approx. 0.21 acre of waters of the US would be impacted from the construction of the development.

It is presumed that the applicant has designed the project to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable by proposing to utilize best management practices during and after the construction phase of the project and ensuring that the project will receive approval from all appropriate drainage and sewage agencies prior to construction.

As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to use a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impact.
