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

 LOCATION OF WORK:  In an approximate 102.48-acre site located south and west of Lovett Road, in Sections 41 & 71, Township 6 South, Range 2 East, near Central, Louisiana, in East Baton Rouge Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.518232 N, Longitude -91.044093 W).   

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill to construct and maintain an approximate 261-lot residential subdivision (Villages at Magnolia Square) to include infrastructure, greenspace, onsite detention ponds, utilities and drainage infrastructure.  Approximately 207,815 cubic yards of clean silt fill and clay from onsite excavation would be placed as fill material in jurisdictional areas.  The proposed project is situated on an approximate 102.48-acre tract that has been determined to contain approximately 9.53 acres of jurisdictional forested wetlands.  Of this, approximately 4.75 acres would be directly impacted as a result of project implementation.  Approximately 0.077 acre of jurisdictional Other Waters of the US would be filled, and 0.257 acre of Other Waters of the US would be relocated / modified as a result of project implementation.  The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts (to wetlands) to the maximum extent practicable by avoiding approximately 4.78 acres of jurisdictional wetlands and has proposed to utilize best management practices for erosion and siltation control during and after the construction phase of the project.  If authorized, the project will receive approval from all appropriate local drainage authorities and sewerage agencies. As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to use a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impact.
