NAME OF APPLICANT: St. Martin Parish Government c/o: Duplantis Design Group, 16564 East Brewster Road, Covington, Louisiana 70437.

LOCATION OF WORK: Located in St. Martin Parish, Cypress Island Coulee and Joe Daigre Canal, located off Terrace Highway, Par Road 139, Cypress Island Highway, and Par Road 150, located in the community of St. Martinville, Louisiana, (Latitude North: 30.153116°N, Longitude West: -91.854411°W), as shown within the enclosed drawings.
(Hydrologic Unit Code 08080103, Vermilion-Teche Basin).

CHARACTER OF WORK: Conduct maintenance dredging operations within Cypress Island Coulee and Joe Daigre Canal and place approximately 8,488 cubic yards of earthen fill material within an existing 30-foot wide drainage easement. Dredged fill material would be placed 20 feet wide at a 2.0 foot high elevation within the drainage easement. Approximately 18-inch to 24-inch diameter 40-foot long culverts would be
installed and approximately 14 cubic yards of rip rap placed within the existing drainage servitudes along the project site. It is anticipated that approximately 3.95 acres of forested wetlands would be permanently impacted via filling operations and 5.24 acres of non-wetland waters would be temporarily impacted via dredging operations. The purpose of the dredging operations is to provide flood protection for adjacent residential and commercial properties. If a Department of the Army permit can be granted, the applicant has proposed to mitigate unavoidable wetlands impacts at an approved and acceptable mitigation bank within the N.O. District.
