NAME OF APPLICANT:  Meadow Crossing, LLC , c/o David Templet of D&S Environmental Services, PO Box 510, French Settlement, Louisiana 70733. 

LOCATION OF WORK:  Section 32, T9S-R3E, on and east of S. Darla Avenue just north of Highway 940 in Gonzales, Louisiana, in Ascension Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070204), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.222959 N, Longitude -90.934815 W).    

The work described below was partially completed prior to obtaining a Department of the Army permit and was in violation of Section 301 of the Clean Water Act.  All legal issues concerning the unauthorized work have since been deferred.

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested after the fact Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct and maintain a 90-lot residential housing development (Meadow Crossing Subdivision) to include roads, driveways, green spaces, sidewalks, and drainage infrastructure including a stormwater detention pond with pertinent discharge outfall.  This project was originally advertised on public notice on January 22, 2019 and this is a readvertisement due to the original application’s withdrawal on April 4, 2020. Approximately 33,695 cubic yards of earthen material would be excavated and redistributed on site to achieve required grade elevation requirements.  Approximately 2,377 cubic yards of limestone, 1,714 cubic yards of concrete and 163 cubic yards of asphalt will be hauled in and deposited for the construction of the subdivision. The proposed project is situated on an approximately 26-acre tract.  Of this, approximately 8.63 acres of jurisdictional wetlands and approx. 0.45 acre of non-wetland waters of the US acres would be impacted in construction of the development. 

The applicant is proposing to utilize best management practices during and after the construction phase of the project and states that the project will receive approval from all appropriate drainage and sewage agencies.  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to use a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impact.   

The applicant may be required to fully or partially restore the site to pre-project conditions if issuance of a permit is determined to be contrary to the public interest.
