NAME OF APPLICANT:  George Martin, c/o Matrix New World Engineering, P.O Box 345, Walker, Louisiana, 70785. 

LOCATION OF WORK:  Near the intersection of LA Highway 1024 and LA Highway 449, approximately 4.7 miles northeast of Walker, Louisiana, in Livingston Parish, within the Mississippi River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings. Coordinates: 30.553083, -90.839383                                                                                            

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested a Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate, and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct a private home site, driveway, and access road. Approximately 7,406.63 cubic yards of native material will be excavated in wetlands to create roadside drainage, and then reused on site for the construction of the home site and access road.  Of this, approximately 3,667.42 cubic yards of native material would be used for construction of the access road and approximately 4,033.33 cubic yards of native material would be used for construction of the home site. Additionally, 1,300 cubic yards of asphalt and 240 cubic yards of concrete would be hauled in and deposited to achieve required grade elevation requirements.  The proposed project is located on a 155-acre tract that contains approximately 137 acres of forested wetlands.  A preliminary assessment suggests that construction of the project may result in the permanent loss of approximately 7.25 acres of wetland habitat. The remainder of the property will be left in its natural state. It is anticipated that the proposed action would have minimal impact on adjacent wetlands.

       A preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would impact approximately 7.25 acres of forested wetlands.

MITIGATION:  The applicant states that the proposed project has been designed using the least damaging option to construct the proposed project. As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to mitigate by purchasing wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located within the watershed.
