NAME OF APPLICANT:  J. Breaux Enterprises, c/o Hydrik Wetlands Consultants, Attn: Mike Henry, 2323 Hwy 190 East, Suite 2, Hammond, LA 70401.      

LOCATION OF WORK:  Between West Colyell Creek and Beaver Branch, on the south side of Springfield Rd., north of Cane Market Rd., east of Perkins Rd., and west of Walker Rd. (30.574544, -90.881303) in Walker, Louisiana, in Livingston Parish within the Amite River Basin hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings.

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate, and place fill on a 244-acre site for the construction of a phases 5-9 of a residential development (Whispering Springs) to include drainage, utility infrastructure, seven storm water detention ponds, roadways, and green space.  Approximately 500,000 cubic yards of earthen fill material will be deposited for construction.  Approximately 5,000 cubic yards of concrete and aggregate material will also be deposited for this project.  Approximately 38.4 acres of jurisdictional forested wetlands will be permanently impacted by clearing, filling or excavation and approximately 36 acres of remaining wetlands will experience secondary impacts.  Approximately 0.2 acre of jurisdictional non-wetland waters (NWW) will also be permanently impacted.

MITIGATION: The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  Any further reduction would limit usage of the property and therefore function, deeming the project impracticable.  

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

During the permitting process, the applicant will be required to obtain approval from the local drainage authority to ensure drainage near the project is not compromised.
