NAME OF APPLICANT: Hazelwood Holdings, LLC, c/o: Geosyntec Consultants, Inc., Attn: Mr. Spencer Varnado, 5420 Corporate Blvd., Suite 202, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70808.

LOCATION OF WORK: Off of U.S. Highway 190, approximately 2.8 miles east of Port Barre, Louisiana, in St. Landry Parish, 30.537815 North, -91.912553.

CHARACTER OF WORK: Clear, grub and grade an approximately 200-acre site to construct a new brine extraction facility, to include four brine extraction wells and ancillary support facilities. A similar project was issued under the above permit number on 9 November 2016. That permit expired and Hazelwood is proposing minor modifications and a time extension of the permit. The overall project impacts have decreased from those previously permitted, with brine ponds and their associated pipelines being removed from the project. Overall wetland impacts have remained the same for both permanent and temporary impacts. The applicant previously purchased 31.3 acres of bottomland hardwood mitigation credits from Bayou Choupique Mitigation Bank on 19 September 2016 for 11.53 acres of temporary impacts and 9.93 acres of
permanent impacts. The project has been configured to include the previously permitted well locations and layout. The locations of the four bring wells were dictated by the geology of the salt dome, compliance with the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources regulations, and proximity to the adjacent Bobcat Gas Storage Facility.
