NAME OF APPLICANT: South Louisiana Fill Materials LLC, c/o Linfield, Hunter & Junius, Inc, 3608 18th Street, Suite 200, Metairie, Louisiana 70002.

LOCATION OF WORK: In the Mississippi River and batture at mile point 152.6 RDB above head of passes on St. Joe Plantation Road (30.008308, -90.770939) in Vacherie, Louisiana, in St. James Parish, within the Lower Mississippi-Baton Rouge River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070100), as shown on the attached drawings.

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested a Department of the Army authorization to extend time and modify and existing expired permit which included suction dredging the Mississippi River for sand to be stockpiled in a Non-Wetland Water (NWW) bature pit located adjacent to the dredge area. The sand would then be moved offsite by truck on St. Joe Plantation Road which crosses the Mississippi River Flood Protection Levee. The modification to the original expired permit includes clearing and excavating the area on the other side of St. Joe Plantation Road which is primarily a NWW pit with some areas that have converted back to wetlands to be utilized as a limestone storage area. The limestone would be brought in on barges, moved into the pit area, and trucked out to be sold for construction projects via St. Joe Plantation Road. Approximately 140,000 cubic yards of sand will be dredged and deposited into the existing pit and approximately 575,000 cubic yards of sand material will be excavated and hauled offsite. Approximately 65 acres of NWW Mississippi River water bottoms and NWW river batture pits will be temporarily impacted. Approximately 275,000 cubic yards of limestone will be placed in wetlands for storage to be removed for sale as needed. Approximately 0.4 acre of forested jurisdictional batture wetlands will be permanently impacted.

A Preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would directly impact 0.4 acre of wetlands.
