NAME OF APPLICANT:  Devall Fleeting, LLC, c/o John Maurin of Lanier & Associates Consulting Engineers, Inc., 4101 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA 70115      

LOCATION OF WORK:  In the Mississippi River, RDB at RM 199 off of Louisiana Highway 405 (River Road) in Plaquemine, Louisiana, in Iberville Parish, within the Mississippi River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070100), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.24048 N, Longitude -91.123643 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The barge fleet location described herein was previously authorized as LMNOD-SE Mississippi River 1414 on November 18,1985 to New Orleans Gulf Harbor Service and subsequently transferred to MPV Investments with the most recent action authorized on April 6, 2016, extended on June 27, 2019. The applicant requests transfer of the previous permit and Department of the Army authorization to modify, operate, and maintain a barge fleet to include a vehicle ramp, two deck barges, four (4) capture piles, and a 25-barge block supported by 10 pipe piles.  Approximately 8.90 acres of traditionally navigable waterways would be impacted by the fleet. It is anticipated that the proposed action would have minimal impact on adjacent wetlands as all work will be performed from vessels in the waterway and access to or from the fleet by land will utilize an existing access road through the batture.

MITIGATION: The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts to the maximum extent practicable by avoiding all adjacent wetlands, limiting the activity to the designated over-water work areas at the site of the proposed fleet, and through compliance with all U.S. Coast Guard navigational requirements. No compensatory mitigation has been proposed as this project does not include impacts to wetlands.
