NAME OF APPLICANT:  Texas Brine Company, LLC, c/o Miller Engineers & Associates, Inc., Attn:  Mr. Joel J. Miller, 601 Main Street, Franklin, Louisiana 70538. 

LOCATION OF WORK:  In Iberville Parish, North 30.126725, West -91.233769, on Ridge Road, approximately 2.9 miles from its intersection with Louisiana Highway 404, southwest of White Castle, Louisiana, in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070300, Lower Grand River), as shown on the attached drawings.          

CHARACTER OF WORK:  Clear, fill and grade three 400’ by 300’ well pads with access roads ranging from 30’ by 200’ to 30’ by 400’, to drill three new brine wells, the locations and roads will be filled with 33,822 cubic yards of earthen fill material and 5,668 cubic yards of limestone material.  A Preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would directly impact 8.57 acres of forested wetlands. 

The applicant states that the proposed project has been designed to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  Any further reduction in the well pads and access roads would not meet engineering construction standards at the project site, therefore rendering the project impracticable.   As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to mitigate with in-kind wetland acres from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed.
