NAME OF APPLICANT:  Manchac Consulting Group, c/o ELOS Environmental, LLC, Attn: Flynn Daigle, 607 West Morris Avenue, Hammond, LA 70403.      

LOCATION OF WORK:  In an approximate 96.07-acre site located along an approximate 8,500-linear foot reach of Bayou Paul ending at its confluence with Alligator Bayou, in Sections 31-33, Township 8 South, Range 2 East, east of Saint Gabriel, Louisiana, in Iberville Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.3020 N, Longitude -91.04412 W).   

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to excavate, place and deposit fill material to restore the water flow and capacity of Bayou Paul within the waterway.  The project would involve the excavation and dredging of approximately 17.6 acres of waterbottoms and channel slopes of an approximate 8,500-linear foot reach of Bayou Paul.  The proposed project would create a channel with a targeted width of 70 feet.  Approximately 67,200 cubic yards of waterbottoms would be excavated and placed as fill material in targeted wetland enhancement areas at depths not to exceed 6 inches in overall thickness and will not be placed in areas that may hinder or affect natural existing drainage.  The fill placement areas would be located within 200-foot wide areas on both sides of the Bayou Paul channel.  All work is proposed to be performed via barge within the channel.  According to the applicant, the proposed restoration by the deepening and widening of Bayou Paul to its original width and depth would allow storm water from rainfall and high-water events to flow directly into Alligator Bayou and would potentially help mitigate flooding in the area.  Approximately 78.5 acres of jurisdictional wetlands would be temporarily impacted as a result of the proposed project as a result of the targeted fill placement depth of 6-inches or less at the proposed wetland enhancement areas.  The applicant is claiming that no forested wetlands would be cleared and that all appropriate best management practices would be implemented to avoid any unnecessary impacts to avoided wetland areas.  The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts (to wetlands) to the maximum extent practicable by performing all work from within the channel, and utilization of an existing boat launch for staging and access.   As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant is proposing that no permanent impacts to the wetland enhancement areas would occur and is requesting a one year growing season prior to performing any assessment for potential project related impacts to wetland areas.
