NAME OF APPLICANT:  America Homeland, c/o Hydrik Wetlands Consultants, Attn: Mike Henry, 2323 Hwy 190 East, Suite 2, Hammond, LA 70401.      

LOCATION OF WORK:  North of Bayou Manchac in Section 42, Township 8 South, Range 2 East, on and south of Hoo Shoo Too Road and just east of Highway 73 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana within East Baton Rouge Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.349779 N, Longitude -90.970433 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 a residential subdivision (Woodhill Residential Development) to include 193 residential lots, roadways, green spaces, utilities, and drainage infrastructure.  Approximately 76,804 cubic yards of earthen material would be excavated on site and redistributed to achieve required grade elevation requirements. Approximately 1,500 cubic yards of asphalt will be placed for the roads. The proposed project is situated on an approximately 62-acre tract that has been determined to have jurisdictional waters and wetlands onsite.  Of this, approximately 0.20 acre of wetlands and approximately 0.358 acre of non-wetland waters would be impacted for the project.  The portion of the property abutting Bayou Manchac will be left in its natural state. 

MITIGATION: The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts by avoiding 2 acres of wetlands and approx. 1,113 linear feet of non-wetland waters, by limiting the construction activity to the designated project areas onsite and maintaining average construction distances from Bayou Manchac of 500 linear feet and 100 linear feet of the avoided wetlands, by utilizing best management practices for erosion and siltation control during and after the construction phase of the project, and by disposing of all removed fill and vegetation not approved as fill material to an off-site, non-jurisdictional location.

As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to use a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impact.

If authorized, the project will receive approval from all appropriate local drainage authorities and sewerage agencies.
