NAME OF APPLICANT:  North Lafourche Levee District, C/O Kenneth King of Delta Coast Consultants, 4924 Hwy 311, Houma, LA 70360. 

LOCATION OF WORK:  From GIWW to Banana Grove, Louisiana along LA Highway 657, in Lafourche Parish, within the Barataria Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08090301), as shown on the attached drawings (POB: Latitude 29.591800 N, Longitude -90.371543 W, POE: Latitude 29.601278 N, Longitude -90.405653 W).   

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct and maintain an approx. 3-mile levee reach tie-in to include infrastructure for a future sector gate and a hydraulic structure equipped with sluice gates and drainage pipes.  Approximately 42,951 cubic yards of material would be excavated and placed onsite along with approx. 284,701 cubic yards of hauled fill and approx. 660 cubic yards of rock material. The project site is within a 3-mile linear corridor and proposes to impact approx. 32.46 acres of wetlands and 2.18 acres of waters of the U.S. 

MITIGATION: The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts to the maximum extent practicable. Any further reduction in the levee and infrastructure would not meet engineering construction standards at the project site. The applicant has designed the project to allow the avoided wetlands located on the protected side of the levee to remain hydrologically connected, limiting the construction activity to the designated project areas onsite. The applicant further proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts by disposing of all removed vegetation by chipping and spreading not to exceed a depth of 4-inches and utilizing best management practices for erosion and siltation control during and after the construction phase of the project. As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to mitigate in-kind wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed. If authorized, the project will receive approval from all appropriate local drainage authorities
