NAME OF APPLICANT:  Tri-Parish Sand & Gravel. LLC, c/o Pangea Conservation & Compliances, LLC, Attn: Erin Colborn, P.O. Box 40345, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70835.      

LOCATION OF WORK:  On the left descending bank of the Amite River (30.693016, -90.863598), approximately 6.4 miles west of Pine Grove, Louisiana in St. Helena Parish, within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin in Amite hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings. 

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization for a time extension and modification to an existing sand and gravel mining operation. The applicant proposes to excavate sand and gravel which will be transferred on an established road within the site to then be deposited into an existing process plant area to be sorted and washed then moved to an existing stockpile area. From the stockpile area, the material will be loaded on trucks for transport and sale. The tailings will be directed and pumped through 4 recirculation areas located within the project area.   Approximately 410,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel would be excavated, washed, dredged, and re-deposited.  The proposed excavation area is approximately 15.9 acres of jurisdictional non-wetland waters of the U.S.  A 75-foot no work zone will be included between the river and a 100-foot no excavation buffer located adjacent to the excavation area.

 A Preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would temporarily impact approximately 15.9 acres of jurisdictional non-wetland waters of the U.S. within the excavation area.  

The applicant stated that they have designed the project to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  The 175-foot buffer to the river has been included to reduce impacts to the Amite River and all wetlands within and near the project site have been avoided by project design.
