CEMVN-RGC
Published Feb. 26, 2024
Expiration date: 3/28/2024
NAME OF APPLICANT: Pelican Marine Services, LLC, c/o Lanier & Associates Consulting Engineers, Inc, Attn: John Maurin, 4101 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA 70115.

LOCATION OF WORK: On the left descending bank of the Mississippi River at mile point 225, approximately 7.1 miles southwest of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in East Baton Rouge Parish (30.380694, -91.221777), within the Mississippi River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070100), as shown on the attached drawings.

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to install 2 captive monopile dolphins, a 200' x 35' barge dock, access gangway, access road and parking area which will include revetment penetration and repair, and limestone fill. Approximately 14 cubic yards of rip-rap will be placed for revetment repair and approximately 405 cubic yards of limestone aggregate will be placed for the road and parking area. Approximately 0.003 acre of jurisdictional water bottoms will be permanently impacted and approximately 0.17 acre of jurisdictional forested batture wetlands will be permanently impacted. A permit was issued at this site on March 5, 2015, with the same Corps permit number for a barge cleaning facility to Tubal Cain Marine. That facility was not constructed, and the permit was transferred to 306 Fleet LLC and modified to be a barge fleeting operation with a raised ramp and parking area. The 306 Fleet, LLC permit was subsequently transferred to Pelican Marine Services, LLC on December 8, 2022. The current request is for a time extension to perform work permitted under the last authorization for 306 Fleet, LLC with modification to remove the barge fleet and add wetland impacts for the access road and parking area. It is anticipated that the proposed action would have no impact on adjacent wetlands.

A preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would impact approximately 0.17 acre of forested batture wetlands.
