NAME OF APPLICANT: Cameron Parish Police Jury, c/o: C.H. Fenstermaker & Associates, 445 North Blvd., Suite 650, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70802.

LOCATION OF WORK: Near Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge, in Cameron and Vermilion Parishes, Louisiana, (centered at lat. 29.706942, long. -92.699797), as shown within the enclosed drawings. Hydrologic Unit Code 08080202, Mermentau Watershed.

CHARACTER OF WORK: Proposed mechanical dredging and excavation of five drainage cannels, cleaning of existing drainage structures under LA Highway 82, and construct an earthen terrace. The excavation of the five drainage channels would consist of excavating vegetated wetlands and water bottoms in areas designated as plugs, preventing the flow of water. Excavated material would be placed in designated disposal areas within the marsh not to exceed +0.5 feet above existing grade. The rehabilitation of existing drainage structures under LA Highway 82 would consist of removing debris from each indicated culvert would be cleared to allow for flow of water. There would be one earthen terrace constructed within Rockefeller Refuge, near Joseph’s Harbor and the East End Locks. The proposed project is necessary to allow water to flow South of LA Highway 82, through Rockefeller Refuge, and the Gulf of Mexico. The proposed project would reduce flooding North of LA Highway 82 during periods of high rainfall and natural disasters. The proposed permanent and temporary impacts to vegetated wetlands as described on page 17 of the attached drawings be mitigated off-site as necessary, with one on-site mitigation component for consideration. Excavated material for the proposed terrace would be placed in open water areas indicated in the plan set as part of marsh creation. The terrace is proposed to create 0.39 acres of marsh. If a Department of the Army permit is found to be in the public interest, for permanent impacts to wetlands and should it be determined that temporary impacts to jurisdictional wetlands persist following a one-year growing season, the applicant has proposed to mitigate wetland impacts at an approved and acceptable mitigation bank or banks within the N.O. District.
