            NAME OF APPLICANT: Joseph Spell, c/o: Tim Morton and Associates, 500 S. Morgan Avenue, Broussard, Louisiana 70518.

LOCATION OF WORK: Located in Vermilion Parish, located in a private canal and off bend of the Vermilion River, on Live Oak Road, in the community of Abbeville, Louisiana, (Latitude North: 29.865639° N, Longitude West: -92.127472° W), as shown within the attached drawings. (Hydrologic Unit Code 08080103, Vermilion-Teche Basin).

CHARACTER OF WORK: Along the bend of the Vermilion River, work consists of installing a 28-foot wide by 50-foot long boat dock with an attached 10-foot wide by 42-foot long fixed deck, a 125-foot long bulkhead, and place approximately 17 cubic yards of hauled-in fill material behind the bulkhead. It is anticipated that approximately 0.01 of an acre of forested wetlands would be permanently impacted and 0.03 of an acre of non-wetland waters would be temporarily impacted via project implementation. Along the private canal, work consists of installing a 25- foot wide by 105-foot long boat dock containing four boat slips. It is anticipated that approximately 0.06 of an acre of non-wetland waters would be temporarily impacted via project implementation. Mitigation has not been proposed since the wetland impacts are under 0.1 of an acre.
