NAME OF APPLICANT:  Spanish Lake Ecological Education Center (SLEEC), 8115 Louisiana Highway 74, St. Gabriel, LA 70776.      

LOCATION OF WORK:  On and north of LA Highway 74 in Section 18, Township 9 South, Range 2 East, just east of St. Gabriel, Louisiana, in Iberville Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.255656 N, Longitude -91.051444 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct and maintain an environmental education facility (Spanish Lake Ecological Education Center) to include appurtenant classrooms, offices, and buildings, board walks, parking lots, access roadways, greenspace, utilities and drainage infrastructure including a water control device to maintain water in the ponded area at a depth of approx. 2.5 feet. Approximately 650 cubic yards of earthen material will be hauled in to construct berms along with 500 cubic yards of crushed shell and 3,200 cubic yards of road base for parking lots, access, road reinforcement, and to achieve required grade elevation requirements.  The proposed project is situated on an approximately 21.1-acre tract that has been historically utilized in conjunction with the St. Gabriel Oil Field. A Preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would directly impact approx. 2.75 acres of wetlands.   

MITIGATION: The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts (to wetlands) to the maximum extent practicable by avoiding 7.8 acres of wetlands, utilizing existing decommissioned oil and gas roads for access, limiting the construction activity to the designated project areas and corridors, disposing of all removed fill and vegetation not approved as fill material by burning on-site, and utilizing best management practices for erosion and siltation control during and after the construction phase of the project. If authorized, the project will receive approval from all appropriate local drainage authorities and sewerage agencies. As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to use a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impact.
