NAME OF APPLICANT:  Ascension Pipeline LLC, c/o SWCA Environmental Consultants, Attn: Paul LeBlanc, III, 1651 Lobdell Ave., Bldg. A, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70806.      

LOCATION OF WORK:  Beginning at the Marathon Refinery in Garyville, Louisiana and proceeding west, crossing under Airline Hwy (US Hwy 61) and the Blind River, then traveling northwest through the Maurepas Wildlife Management area and crossing under four state highways and the I-10 twice then terminating at the EnLink Facility, in Geismar, Louisiana. The project will span Ascension, St. James, and St. John the Baptist Parishes within the Lake Maurepas (08070204) hydrologic unit, as shown on the attached drawings.

CHARACTER OF WORK: A permit for the work described herein was previously authorized to Ascension Pipeline, LLC and was issued on October 25, 2016, and later modified on July 19, 2022. The applicant (permittee) is requesting authorization to incorporate some minor changes that were made during project construction.  Initially, the authorized project proposed that approximately 7.169 acres of forested swamp wetlands would be temporarily impacted during project construction but were reduced to 5.873 acres.  Moreover, the authorized project also proposed temporary impacts to approximately 5.755 acres of herbaceous wetlands but was increased to 6.284 acres during project construction.  Lastly, project construction resulted in 0.39 acre permanent impacts to fresh marsh wetlands.  All of these proposed changes are associated with workspace and access for construction and maintenance of the pipeline.  

MITIGATION: The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts to the maximum extent practicable.

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