NAME OF APPLICANT: Tower Capital, c/o: Hydrik Wetlands Consultants, attn.: Mr. Michael Henry, 2323 LA Highway 190 E, Suite 2, Hammond, Louisiana 70401

LOCATION OF WORK: Located on an approximate 102.48-acre site located south and west of Lovett Road, in Sections 41 & 71, Township 6 South, Range 2 East, near Central, Louisiana, in East Baton Rouge Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.518232 N, Longitude -91.044093 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested a Department of the Army permit modification to previously authorized work to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill to construct and maintain a residential subdivision (Villages at Magnolia Square) to include infrastructure, greenspace, onsite detention ponds, utilities and drainage infrastructure. The original Department of the Army permit authorization was issued on July 22, 2022, and has an expiration date of August 31, 2027. The proposed modification includes a change in project footprint, decrease in number of residential lots from 261 to 259, and expanded detention pond areas to comply with city and parish drainage authorities. Approximately 272,200 cubic yards of onsite material would be excavated and placed as fill material in jurisdictional areas. The project modification would propose to impact an additional 1.2 acres of jurisdictional forested wetlands. The original permit had mitigated for approximately 4.8 acres of impacts to jurisdictional wetlands. Approximately 3.612 acres of the total 9.525 acres of jurisdictional wetlands on the project site would be avoided in the proposed modification. Approximately 0.474 acre of jurisdictional Other Waters of the US would be directly impacted (excavated, filled, and/or modified/relocated) as a result of the project. Approximately 0.11 acre of jurisdictional Other Waters of the US would be avoided. The applicant proposes to utilize best management practices for erosion and siltation control during and after the construction phase of the project. If authorized, the project will receive approval from all appropriate local drainage authorities. To offset unavoidable impacts to jurisdictional wetlands that were previously not mitigated for, the applicant is proposing to purchase in kind within basin bottomland hardwood credits an approved mitigation bank.
