NAME OF APPLICANT: Five-S Group, c/o: Pangaea Conservation and Compliance, L.L.C., 1952 East Flonacher Road, Zachary, Louisiana 70791. A DA permit transfer was completed in December 2022’, assigning rights from the original permittee (GNL) to the present applicant (Five -S Group).

LOCATION OF WORK: Located in Calcasieu Parish, located at the intersection of LA Highway 384 and West Tank Farm Road, in the community of Lake Charles, Louisiana, (Latitude North: 30.122829° N, Longitude West: -93.279282° W), as shown within the enclosed drawings. (Hydrologic Unit Code 08080206, Calcasieu Basin).

CHARACTER OF WORK: Work consists of converting a 42.20-acre site (Tract 3) into a commercial borrow pit with a 50-foot buffer, equaling approximately 6.11 acres, surrounding the area and installing two 24-inch diameter culverts within two 26-foot wide by 48-foot-long areas for entry access. (Tract 2) would be used as a laydown area and no work would be done in (Tract 1), and these areas include a total of 11.4 acres. The project site was previously mitigated and permitted for a development including commercial and industrial buildings and associated infrastructure. The proposed purpose of this previously permitted site has changed from a commercial building development to a proposed borrow pit and it is anticipated that the project would permanently impact approximately 5.0 acres of forested wetlands via excavation operations and temporarily impact 0.056 of an acre of non-wetland waters via culvert installation. The applicant has not proposed a compensatory mitigation plan since the site was previously mitigated under the original DA permit for the site.
