NAME OF APPLICANT: Ascension Parish Government, c/o ELOS Environmental, LLC., 607 West Morris Avenue, Hammond, Louisiana 70403.

LOCATION OF WORK: This project is located approximately 0.5 mile southwest of the intersection of LA 74 and LA 928, within the town of Geismar, Louisiana, in Ascension Parish, within the Mississippi River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202 and 08070204), as shown on the attached drawings. Coordinates: 30.247756, -91.014278.

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization for after the fact clearing, grading, excavation, and deposition of fill that occurred during emergency flood relief work. The applicant has also requested authorization for proposed excavation and grading of fill material to restore the wetland impacts that resulted from the original authorization. The original emergency flood relief authorization was granted in June of 2021 for the excavation of a new cut and shallow excavation (mucking) of an existing relic channel to facilitate drainage of excess flood waters that accumulated within Bluff Swamp. The cut connected Bluff swamp to the relic channel to allow excess flood waters to drain south into New River. The project area measures approximately 5.22 acres in total. Approximately 9,266 cubic yards of material was excavated during the construction of the cut and mucking of the relic channel. Approximately 0.18 acres of temporary impacts to wetlands were proposed in the original emergency authorization, but the actual work performed impacted 0.44 acre of jurisdictional wetlands. The attached drawings show that the work area exceeded the originally permitted footprint and is proposed to be restored. It is anticipated that the proposed action would have minimal impact on adjacent wetlands. A preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would temporarily impact approximately 0.44 acres of forested wetlands. If additional wetland impacts are determined to have occurred, this public notice we be updated and re-issued for public comment.
