NAME OF APPLICANT:  River Ventures, Attn: Jerry Hannah, 11744 River Highlands Drive, St. Amant, LA 70724.      

LOCATION OF WORK:  In and along the left descending bank of the Mississippi River, near river mile 220.5 by Sardine Point, near 10415 River Road, near Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in East Baton Rouge Parish, within the Mississippi River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070100), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.339856 N, Longitude -91.218764 W).   

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to  excavate and deposit fill to improve an existing access road within the Mississippi River batture for access to install and maintain eight (8) barge anchors within the batture to moor the proposed barges.  The proposed barge mooring area consists of an approximate 2700 linear foot long by 365 linear foot wide fleeting area (9 barges wide) and will contain 8 shore wires to the proposed anchor points.  Approximately 0.02 acre of batture herbaceous wetlands would be temporarily impacted as a result of anchor point installation.  Approximately 0.15 acre of batture habitat would be temporarily impacted as a result of existing road improvement.  The applicant has stated that the existing road improvements will not impact any forested batture areas and that the borrow areas will re-vegetate naturally.  Approximately 2,914 cubic yards of sand material would be excavated for road improvements and anchor installation.  The project will temporarily impact approximately 0.17 acre of batture habitat.  It is anticipated that the proposed action would have minimal impact on adjacent wetlands.  The applicant is proposing a one year growing season to allow for the disturbed batture area to naturally re-vegetate before any assessment of wetland impacts that may require mitigation.  No compensatory mitigation is being required for the temporary impacts to batture habitat but will be reassessed post construction after a one year growing season.   

The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts (to wetlands) to the maximum extent practicable by utilizing best management practices for erosion and siltation control during and after the construction phase of the project.
