NAME OF APPLICANT: Lafayette Parish Consolidated Government - Public Works, c/o: CK Associates, Attn: Autry Atkins, 8591 United Plaza Blvd. Suite 300, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70809.

LOCATION OF WORK: Located along the Vermilion River, near Lake Martin Rd. and adjacent to the Bayou Tortue Swamp, in Lafayette and St. Martin Parishes, Louisiana, (lat. 30.211503°, long. -91.969724°), as shown within the attached drawings. (Hydrologic Unit Code 08080103, Vermilion River Basin).


Chappuis Site (MVN-2021-00165-WKK) – in Lafayette Parish, North Bank Vermilion River

The project is for the creation of a temporary flood storage retention area in an existing wetland area west of Lake Martin Rd. that is historically and currently subject to flooding from both seasonal rainfall and overbank flooding events. This proposed project will involve permanent impacts to 0.53 acre of bottomland hardwood forested wetlands for the repair of an existing levee breach, construction of a water control structure, aggregate access path, and removal and backfilling of an existing damaged culvert.  Impacts to non-wetland waters of the US will total 0.09 acre or 108 linear feet. The applicant proposes to purchase mitigation credits of an appropriate type and amount from an approved bank to offset permanent wetland impacts.

Blanchet Site (MVN-2021-00698-WKK) – in St. Martin Parish, South Bank Vermilion River & Bayou Tortue Swamp

The purpose of the project is to restore the natural hydraulic exchange between the Vermillion River and Bayou Tortue Swamp in periods of overbank flooding through the removal of existing upland spoil banks just upstream from the confluence of Bayou Tortue and the Vermillion River. This proposed project will involve temporary impacts to 0.53 acre of bottomland hardwood forested wetlands related to construction, in which 0.11 of an acre will be temporarily cleared for the placement of timber matting to allow equipment to access the western end of the existing upland spoil bank, and the remaining 0.42 of an acre of temporary impacts will result from clearing forested wetlands north of the existing upland spoil bank and south of the natural bank of the Vermilion River to allow for staging of spoil material, equipment and personnel maneuvering, and barge loading.  Impacts to non-wetland waters of the US will total 0.01 acre or 57 linear feet. The applicant proposes to purchase mitigation credits of an appropriate type and amount from an approved bank to offset temporal function loss, re-plant the impact areas with native bottomland hardwood species following construction, a combination of the aforementioned, or as determined necessary by the USACE.
