NAME OF APPLICANT:  CF Industries Nitrogen, LLC, c/o Matrix New World Engineering, 2798 O’Neal Lane, Building F, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70816. 

LOCATION OF WORK:  In the Mississippi River, right descending bank, mile 173.5, near Donaldsonville, Louisiana, in Ascension Parish (lat. 30.106389, long. -90.951111), within the Mississippi River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070100), as shown on the attached drawings.                                                                                             

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested a Department of the Army authorization to continue maintenance dredging within the previously authorized, 21-acre dredge area.  Approximately 300,000 cubic yards will be removed with a cutterhead suction dredge and deposited below the -55’ contour of the Mississippi River. Approximately 21 acres of non-vegetated water bottoms will be impacted by the proposed activity.  The applicant has avoided impacts to special aquatic sites.  The dredge area has been minimized to only the areas needed to safely dock ships at the existing dock.   Due to the lack of impacts to special aquatic sites and the fact that impacts occur within a maintained, previously authorized footprint, no compensatory mitigation will be required.  Should it later be determined that compensatory mitigation will be required, the applicant will purchase credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located within the basin of impact.
