NAME OF APPLICANT:  South Louisiana Fill Materials c/o Colin Landry of Linfield, Hunter & Junius, Inc., 3608 18th Street, Metairie, LA 70002.

LOCATION OF WORK:  On the Mississippi River, left descending bank at river mile 172.7, west of Darrow, Louisiana, in Ascension Parish, within the Mississippi River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070100), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.114768 N, Longitude -90.951717 W).   

CHARACTER OF WORK: The project location has historically been an active sand mining operation facility. The most recent authorization dated March 26, 2019 merged this site with an adjacent sand mining operation directly to the north into a single approx. 135-acre mining facility under management of South Louisiana Fill Materials, LLC.  However, this southern portion was authorized as MVN-2013-01904-CL on April 21, 2014 to B&K Equipment Services, Inc. and transferred to the current applicant on August 10, 2017. The northern portion was authorized as MVN-2008-00302-CU on March 6, 2009 to the current applicant and extended for time on September 14, 2015.

The applicant now requests Department of the Army authorization to separate the sites into two distinct facilities once again and modify the southern site to include the continued use of a barge spudding location, three existing sand pits totaling approx.10 acres, and an existing 6-acre stockpile area within the Mississippi River. Approx. 150,000 CY of excavated material will be removed for commercial sale each year impacting a total of approx. 16 acres of traditionally navigable water and Mississippi River batture.

MITIGATION: The applicant has designed the project to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable by remaining within the footprint of the existing mining operation facility, avoiding all wetlands and utilizing best management practices during the construction phase of the project and the project.  The proposed activity does not affect wetland resources; therefore, no mitigation is required.
