NAME OF APPLICANT:  Entergy Louisiana, Inc., c/o: C.H. Fenstermaker & Associates, L.L.C., attn: Mr. Chad Soileau, 16340 Park Ten Place, Suite 165, Houston, Texas 77084.

LOCATION OF WORK: Located in Iberville Parish, located off Dean Road, in Plaquemine, Louisiana, (lat. 30.258129, long. 91.168231), as shown within the attached drawings. (Hydrologic Unit Code 08070300, Lower Grand Watershed)

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested a Department of the Army authorization to conduct mechanized land clearing, grading, and deposition of fill to construct a expand the existing Bayou LaButte Substation and mechanized land clearing for the Magnolia Power L.L.C. transmission line cut-in right-of-way in Iberville Parish. The purpose of the proposed work is to upgrade the existing substation to increase capacity and efficiency, as well as to accommodate the Midcontinental Independent System Operator interconnection request for the Magnolia Power Plant being constructed by Magnolia Power L.L.C. The project will be located on an approximately 3 acre tract of land located west of Dean Road near Plaquemines, Louisiana.  A preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would directly impact approximately 0.51 acres of bottomland hardwood habitat and 0.83 acres of palustrine scrub-shrub habitat through clearing and filling activities, 0.50 acres of bottomland hardwood and 0.22 acres of palustrine scrub-shrub through clearing activities only, and temporary impacts to 0.1 acres of palustrine emergent habitat. Fill operations will include the deposition of approximately 1,167 cubic yards of limestone material and 6,373 cubic yards of earthen material into wetlands, as foundation for a power substation and access roads.  

MITIGATION:  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 power substation site size would not meet the functional and operational needs that necessitate the Bayou LaButte Substation expansion.  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to use a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impact
