NAME OF APPLICANT:  Greater Lafourche Port Commission, 16829 East Main St., Cut Off, Louisiana 70345 

LOCATION OF WORK: at Latitude 29.13941, Longitude -90.19056, at Port Fourchon, Louisiana, within the Lafourche Basin Hydrologic Unity (HUC08090301), within Lafourche Parish, as shown on the attached drawings. 

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant received an authorization to dredge slip d and to construct an industrial development surrounding the slip.  To date, approximately 93.4 acres of marsh with 6,150 feet of integrated tidal creeks, approximately 885,302 cubic yards of the authorized 2,986,698 cubic yards have been removed via dredging, and approximately 4 acres of industrial development has been constructed along Flotation Canal Road.  The applicant has requested authorization to dredge the remaining 2.1 million cubic yards of material and install fill material to construct an industrial area.  In addition, the applicant has requested to modify the footprint of the western development area located adjacent to Flotation Canal Road.  The change in footprint will reduce wetland impacts from 4.25 acres to 3.92 acres.

MITIGATION:  The applicant claims 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 levee and floodgate would not meet engineering construction standards at the project site.  The proposed activity does not affect wetland resources; therefore, no mitigation is required.
