NAME OF APPLICANT: Greater Baton Rouge Port Commission, PO Box 380, Port Allen, LA 70767.

LOCATION OF WORK: On the Mississippi River at river mile 228 on the right descending bank, in Port Allen, Louisiana, in West Baton Rouge Parish, within the Mississippi River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070100), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.437777 N, Longitude -91.200017 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to perform maintenance dredging to maintain a minimum berthing depth of -40 ft N.G.V.D around an existing dock facility and degrade a portion of the batture to include excavation, grading and deposition of fill in a stockpile location. No more than approx. 125,000 cubic yards of silt material would be dredged and disposed of beyond the -55 ft N.V.G.D. contour of the Mississippi River annually and approx. 9,000 cubic yards will be excavated from the batture and removed from site. The proposed project is situated on the batture and water bottom of the Mississippi River and would temporarily impact approximately 4.4 acres of emergent wetlands and 26 acres of water bottoms.

MITIGATION: The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts by limiting the construction activity to the designated construction areas onsite, placing excavated material directly into contracted third-party commercial dump trucks for disposal at an off-site non-wetland facility, and performing only the required 2 batture degradation to maintain engineering standards resulting in only temporary impacts to wetlands.

As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to use a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impact, if necessary.
