NAME OF APPLICANT:  Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA), 150 Terrace Avenue, Baton Rouge, LA 70802

LOCATION OF WORK:  Bayou Pigeon Boat Ramp located on the eastern shoreline of Little Tensas Bayou (30.078997, -91.306794), approximately 10 miles northwest of Pierre Part, Louisiana, in Iberville Parish, within the Atchafalaya River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08080101), as shown on the attached drawings. 

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested a Department of the Army authorization to dredge, excavate, discharge fill materials to expand/lengthen existing concrete boat launch ramps, install additional floating docks and timber piles, install a kayak launch, resurface the existing parking lot, and install a sheet pile bulkhead along the eastern shoreline of Little Tensas Bayou. Approximately 3,715 cubic yards of material with a footprint approximately 0.4 of an acre in size is proposed to be excavated and reused on site. A total of 4,291 cubic yards of fill is proposed to be discharged at the site for backfilling the bulkhead supports and resurfacing the parking area. The proposed project is situated on an approximately 1-acre tract and a preliminary assessment suggests that construction of the project may result in the permanent loss of approximately 0.38 of an acre of wetland habitat.  It is anticipated that the proposed action would have minimal impact on adjacent wetlands.

        A preliminary analysis has determined wetlands to be present at the project site; however, extent of coverage and impacts is undetermined at this time pending wetland delineation.

MITIGATION: The applicant states that the proposed project footprint was minimized to avoid impacts to wetlands and water bottoms. The applicant stated that best management practices will be employed during construction to avoid impacts to wetlands and water bottoms. Should the proposed project result in the permanent loss of wetland habitat, the applicant will be required to offset the loss at a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed.
