NAME OF APPLICANT: The Louisiana Land and Exploration, LLC, c/o: Ducks Unlimited, 125 Southpark Road, Lafayette, Louisiana 70508.

LOCATION OF WORK: Located in Terrebonne Parish, on the north bank of Carencro Bayou, in Carencro, Louisiana, Latitude 29.378172, Longitude -91.0115306, as shown within the enclosed drawings. Hydrologic Unit Code 08090302, Terrebonne Watershed.

CHARACTER OF WORK: The proposed project would restore eight breaches and approximately 10 miles of natural ridge habitat adjacent to Carencro Bayou. Approx. 540,931 cubic yards (CY) of material would be excavated and 160,766 CY of material would be brought in as additional fill. Approximately 36.36 acres of unvegetated waterbottoms would be excavated. Approximately 45.95 acres of existing bankline ridge would be restored to an elevation of 3.5 feet above sea level. The proposed project would benefit the surrounding marsh by increasing the efficacy of previous restoration projects in the area by restoring freshwater flow, preventing saltwater intrusion, and maintaining appropriate water levels within existing area marshlands. The project would result in the restoration and enhancement of freshwater marsh habitat in three distinct micro-watersheds. The south watershed is 1,299 acres, the north watershed is 5,779 acres, and the east watershed is 5,178 acres. Combined, the project would have a beneficial effect to 12,255 acres of marsh habitat. The applicant has proposed that the project benefits will outweigh the detriments, and therefore have not proposed a compensatory mitigation plan for the project. A final decision on whether or not to require compensatory mitigation will be decided by the Corps of Engineers at the completion of its permit review process.
