NAME OF APPLICANT:  Lafourche Parish Government, C/O GIS Engineering, LLC, ATTN: Mohan Menon, 450 Laurel Street, Suite 1500, Baton Rouge, LA 70801.      

LOCATION OF WORK:  From the point of entry of the GIWW, a 3.25-mile portion of Grand Bayou, a connected slip, and adjacent bank lines north and south of Borg Larose Highway in Larose, Louisiana, in Lafourche Parish, within the Terrebonne Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08090302), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 29.538175 N, Longitude -90.401473 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The work described herein was previously authorized and partially completed under the emergency authorization issued on November 30, 2022.  As required by the previous approval for work, the applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to perform maintenance dredging of a portion of Grand Bayou, including an existing slip, and to deposit dredged material along spoil banks to restore access to the existing water control structure currently impacted by silt build-up from the storm surge experienced during Hurricane Ida.  Approximately 108,260 cubic yards of material would be dredged from approximately 37 acres of waterbottoms and deposited on a total of 36 acres of spoil banks adjacent to the waterbody. A preliminary analysis has determined wetlands to be present adjacent to the waterbody at the spoil banks; however, extent of coverage is undetermined at this time pending wetland delineation.  

MITIGATION: The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts to the maximum extent practicable by limiting the activity to the waterways and designated construction areas onsite, utilizing best management practices for erosion and siltation control during and after the construction phase of the project, and limiting spoil cast onto the adjacent, existing spoil banks to 500-foot segments with 50-foot gaps left between the spoil placement areas to maintain functioning hydrology. Any further reduction would not satisfy engineering standards for the waterway, and therefore limit function, deeming the project impracticable.  

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