NAME OF APPLICANT:  Badger Oil Corp. c/o Tim Morton & Associates, Inc., 500 S. Morgan Avenue, Broussard, LA 70518      

LOCATION OF WORK:  Access canals in the Bully Camp Field adjacent to and within the Point-aux-Chenes WMA in Sections 32, 36, 53, Township 19 South, Range 21 East and Sections 55, 56, 61, 62, 63, 64, Township 18 South, Range 21 East, southeast of Houma, Louisiana, in Lafourche Parish, within the Terrebonne Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08090302), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 29.467368 N, Longitude -90.359555 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The work described herein was partially completed under Emergency Authorization MVN-2017-01257-CG/ EUA 21-058 dated September 21, 2021, in response to Hurricane Ida. Approximately 62% of the work has been completed in response to the Emergency Authorization. The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to complete the maintenance dredging of the access canals in Bully Camp Field to include disposal of dredged material onto existing spoil banks and/or broadcast over adjacent shallow open water in locations which lack existing spoil banks.  Approximately 119,208 cubic yards of material will be dredged from approximately 36.60 acres of canals within traditionally navigable waters and deposited in approximately 73.17 acres of mixed open water/spoil bank areas. It is anticipated that the proposed action would have minimal impact on adjacent wetlands as the applicant has proposed disposal only onto existing spoil or within open waters.  

            The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts to wetlands to the maximum extent practicable by completing the work from waterborne vessels to avoid unnecessary impacts to wetlands and waterbottoms and by depositing dredged material in non-wetland areas. As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to mitigate in-kind wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed.
