NAME OF APPLICANT:  K&D Development, 14880 Lucien Street, Denham Springs, LA 70726 

LOCATION OF WORK:  Wetlands near the intersection of William Ficklin Road and U.S. Highway 61, in Section 8, Township 9 South, Range 3 East, within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin (HUC 08070204), near Duplessis, Louisiana, in Ascension Parish, as shown on the attached drawings, (Latitude 30.281397 N, Longitude -90.934725 W).   

CHARACTER OF WORK: The work described herein was previously authorized as Braud Subdivision to Energy Star Homes, LLC on November 27, 2006, extended on May 211, 2012, and modified as Belle Maison Subdivision to K&D Development on December 11, 2015.  The applicant has requested a time extension for the Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct and maintain the 54-lot single family residential subdivision (Belle Maison) to include driveways, green space, sidewalks, two stormwater detention ponds, a sewer treatment plant, and ingress/egress access. Approximately 3,252 cubic yards of earthen material and a combination of 2,624 cubic yards of soil and/concrete will be deposited during construction of the project, as shown on the drawings. The project is situated on 24.13 acres and proposes direct impacts to 3.71 jurisdictional wetlands and 0.38 acres of other waters of the US. 

The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts by avoiding 0.30 acre of jurisdictional aquatic resources and by utilizing best management practices for erosion and siltation control during and after the construction phase of the project. Compensatory mitigation required for the original project and the previous modification has been assessed, collected and is considered to be satisfactory for the remainder of work to be completed.
