NAME OF APPLICANT: Lake Charles Harbor and Terminal District, c/o: Gahagan & Bryant Associates, 9330 Kirby Drive, Suite 100, Houston, Texas 77054.

LOCATION OF WORK: Located in Calcasieu Parish, at 3501 Bayou D’Inde Road, in Westlake, Louisiana, (lat. 30.193771, long. -93.296035), as shown within the attached drawings. (Hydrologic Unit Code 08080206, Calcaseu-Mermentau)

CHARACTER OF WORK: The existing permit authorizes impacts to approximately 30.8 acre of jurisdictional Waters of the United States through dredging activities.  Included in the 30.8 acres of jurisdictional open water impacts are the construction of 2,785 feet of pile supported dock structure, shoreline stabilization by approximately 2,290 feet of patented open cell design bulkhead, and dredging of approximately 1,100,000 CY of material to -40 feet Mean Low Gulf (MLG), plus 2 feet of advance maintenance, plus 2 feet of allowable overdepth of the Calcasieu River and Pass Ship Channel in Calcasieu Parish.

            The proposed time extension and permit modification includes additional dredge disposal facilities not considered for the previous authorization.  The Lake Charles Harbor and Terminal                District has partnered with Lake Charles Methanol, LLC to invest in infrastructure development in Lake Charles which includes expansion of Lake Charles Harbor and Terminal District’s                    Bulk Terminal #1 facility. The facilities at Bulk Terminal #1 unload dry bulk commodities and load liquid products. Due to limited dock space at the existing facility, new docks are necessary              to handle additional capacity requirements. If a Department of the Army permit is warranted, the applicant has proposed to mitigate unavoidable wetlands impacts at an approved and                    acceptable mitigation bank within the N.O. District.
