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:   Clear, grade, and fill for modifications to an existing vegetable oil manufacturing facility in Avondale, Louisiana. The expansion includes an expanded containment area and a ditch relocation with culverts. The original site is approximately 16.21 acres and the expansion area is approximately 2.0 acres. Additional impacts include approximately 0.32 acres of jurisdictional wetlands and 0.26 acres of Other Waters of the US. The applicant has proposed to compensate for any unavoidable impacts to jurisdictional wetlands by utilizing a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed.

This project was originally authorized in January 2019. Approximately 0.96 acres of permanent impacts to jurisdictional wetlands were mitigated for at a Corps approved mitigation bank in the original authorization.

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.
