NAME OF APPLICANT:  LIVINGSTON PARISH GOVERNMENT., c/o Elos Environmental, LLC, 607 West Morris Avenue, Hammond, LA 70403.

LOCATION OF WORK:  In Lake Maurepas, dredging and disposal latitude and longitudes shown in in the drawings, Latitude 30.296389, Longitude -90.561228, Louisiana, in St. John the Baptist and Livingston Parishes, within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070204), as shown on the attached drawings.  

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested a Department of the Army authorization to dredge navigation channels via cutterhead suction dredging at the mouths of the Blind River and Amite River in Lake Maurepas. The dredged material will be transferred to the disposal locations via floating disposal pipe and disposal will be unconfined. Approximately 50,460 cubic yards will be dredged at the mouth of the Amite River and 101,000 cubic yards will be dredged at the mouth of the Blind River. The dredged material will be disposed into waterbottoms of Lake Maurepas and minimal fill locations at the edge of the cypress swamp. The material will be disposed into waterbottoms and extend into the swamp from wind and wave action. No dredged material disposal equipment will be located shoreward of the cypress trees. 

The applicant claims that the proposal will have no impacts to wetlands and that the deposited spoil material on the waterbottom will not increase the elevation of the ground surface of the wetlands onshore.
