NAME OF APPLICANT:  McManus Construction, c/o: Southland Environmental, LLC., Attn: Cleveland Hoffpauir, 510 Clarence Street, Lake Charles, Louisiana, 70601.

LOCATION OF WORK: Located in Section 27, T10S-R10W, along the east side of LA Hwy 27, in Carlyss, Louisiana, in Calcasieu Parish, (latitude 30.158083°; longitude -93.367861°), as shown within the attached drawings. (Hydrologic Unit Code 08080206, within the Calcasieu River Basin)

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 will clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill to construct a borrow pit, access road, and associated infrastructure for construction of the Carlyss C & D landfill facility.  Approximately 1,520 cubic yards of earthen material and 450 cubic yards of aggregate will be deposited for roadway construction.  Approximately 600 cubic yards of material will be excavated for construction of roadside ditches. These soils will be used in the roadway construction for contouring and grading.  Two 36-inch culverts will be installed along LA Highway 27 beneath the proposed access road.  A 4.5 acre borrow pit will be excavated, removing approximately 167,000 cubic yards of earthen material to be used on-site for grading.  The remaining portions of the property will be filled, graded, and contoured to allow for equipment and/or material storage/laydown areas.  Approximately 16,000 cubic yards of earthen material will be deposited for the laydown/storage areas.  The proposed project will result in permanent impacts to approximately 7.7 acres of forested wetlands, and 0.05 acre non-wetland waters.  If a Department of the Army permit is warranted, the applicant has proposed to mitigate unavoidable wetlands impacts at an approved and acceptable mitigation bank within the N.O. District.
