NAME OF APPLICANT:  Lafayette Parish Government, Attn: Frederick Trahan, Post Office Box 4017-C, Lafayette, Louisiana, 70502.

LOCATION OF WORK: Located within and along the Vermilion River, near Coulee Mine, in Lafayette Parish (latitude 30.192750; Longitude -92.028778°), as shown within the attached drawings. (Hydrologic Unit Code 08080103, within the Vermilion- Teche River Basin)

CHARACTER OF WORK: To perform spot dredging of areas within the Vermilion River at the Coulee Mine outfall by bucket dredge, removing approximately 14,156 cubic yards of spoil material and placing it on a hopper barge for transport and disposal. The material will be hauled approximately one mile up river and disposed of at the Jomela disposal site, requiring temporary impacts to 0.03 of an acre of jurisdictional wetlands along the river bank for access from river to the disposal site. The adjacent delineated and avoided jurisdictional wetlands and waters will be protected from runoff of unconsolidated sediments by the construction of a two-foot perimeter berm surrounding, the approximately 8,000 cubic yards of material that is expected to remain at the disposal site after dewatering. The areas impacted by the crossing will be allowed to re-vegetate following completion of disposal activities and removal of board roads. The applicant has not proposed compensatory mitigation for the temporary wetland impacts, due to the minor acreage of impacts proposed.
