NAME OF APPLICANT:  TOWER CAPITAL c/o Michael Henry, Hydrik, 2323 Hwy 190 E, Suite 2, Hammond, LA 70401

LOCATION OF WORK:  Along Hooper Road, Latitude 30.530254, Longitude -91.101037, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in East Baton Rouge Parish, within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings. 

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested a Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct and maintain a single-family residential development (Belle Arbor) to single- family residential lots, roadways, detention ponds, utilities, and drainage infrastructure.  Approximately 338,028 cubic yards of silt material will be excavated to construct the detention ponds and used for fill on site. The proposed project is situated on an approximately 53.70-acre tract that has been determined to contain a mixture of pasture and forested wetlands and non-wetland waters. Nearly the entire tract will be utilized to construct the residential development. The proposed project is expected to impact 6.84 acres of wetlands and the applicant is proposing to avoid 0.85 acre of wetlands. It is anticipated that the proposed action would have minimal impact on adjacent wetlands with the use of best management practices to reduce runoff and erosion.

The applicant claims that potential minimization will be addressed post notice and mitigation will be purchased at an approved bank within the Pontchartrain Basin.
