NAME OF APPLICANT: Teche-Vermilion Freshwater District, c/o: Sellers and Associates, Inc., 148-B Easy Street, Lafayette, Louisiana 70506.

LOCATION OF WORK: Located in Iberia Parish, located in Loreauville Canal, near 475 Parish Road 304, located in the community of New Iberia, Louisiana, (Latitude North: 30.01933°N, Longitude West: -91.68070°W), as shown within the enclosed drawings. (Hydrologic Unit Code 08080102, Vermilion-Teche Basin).

CHARACTER OF WORK: Work consists of dredging approximately 9,000 cubic yards of fill material from the Loreauville Canal Bypass Channel, excavating approximately 3,500 cubic yards of earthen fill material to construct an 80-foot wide by 100-foot long cofferdam and overflow weir, placing 2,225 cubic yards of earthen fill material and 175 cubic yards of riprap around the cofferdam, placing approximately 94 cubic yards of stone to install a 14-foot wide by 544-foot long road within a permanent Right-of-Way to access the cofferdam, dewatering and maintenance of an existing navigable control structure, placing approximately 5,724 cubic yards of dredged fill material at a non- wetland spoil disposal site. All remaining spoil would be hauled off to a non-wetland disposal site. Approximately 0.18 of an acre of non-wetland waters would be permanently impacted via cofferdam construction, 0.17 of an acre of non-wetland would be permanently impacted via access road construction, 1.4 acres of non-wetland waters would be temporarily impacted via project implementation. The purpose of dewatering and maintenance of the existing navigable control structure is to comport with the procedures related to the USACE DAC29-81-C-0106 project issued in August 1982. The purpose of dredging the bypass channel is to provide adequate flow through the new bypass drainage structure in order to maintain and control drainage during the dewatering period. No wetland impacts are anticipated therefore no compensatory mitigation would be required.
