NAME OF APPLICANT:  Lafayette Consolidated Government, Post Office Box 4017-C, Lafayette, Louisiana 70502.

LOCATION OF WORK: Located in Lafayette Parish, located off Frem Bustany Drive, near Isaac Verlot Coulee Lateral W-6L7 (L7) and Lateral W-6L7C (L7C), in the community of Lafayette, Louisiana, (Latitude North: 30.155278°N, Longitude West: -92.038360°W), as shown within the attached drawings. (Hydrologic Unit Code 08080103, Vermilion-Teche Basin).

CHARACTER OF WORK:  Excavate approximately 140,000 cubic yards of earthen fill material within a 3.25-acre site for Detention Pond 1 and within a 7.5-acre site for Detention Pond 2. Excavate approximately 15,000 cubic yards of earthen fill material to relocate a 1.35-acre area of Lateral L7C. Excavated fill material would be placed onsite for pond construction. Install approximately 200 square yards of flexible revetment for detention ponds 1 and 2, approximately 4,000 square yards of flexible revetment within a 4.4-acre area of Lateral L7, and approximately 4,300 square yards of flexible revetment for Lateral L7C, remove five pipe outfalls from Lateral L7, and install three pipe outfalls in Lateral L7C. No pipes would be removed or installed within Laterals L7 and L7C. Out of a total 16.5 acres, it is anticipated that approximately 2.45 acres of forested wetlands would be permanently impacted via project implementation. During rain events, Kings Haven Subdivision and Ashland Park Subdivision, which drain into Lateral L7, experience back flow of water due to the high water elevation within L7. The purpose of the detention ponds would alleviate back flow causing flooding concerns for both subdivisions. The realignment of Lateral L7C would maximize water capacity within the ponds. If a Department of the Army permit is warranted, the applicant has proposed to mitigate unavoidable wetlands impacts at an approved and acceptable mitigation bank within the N.O. District.
