 LOCATIONS OF WORK: Within lower Mississippi River distributaries and their adjacent waters:

1.) Main Pass at Lat: 29.2413, Long: -89.2402, & Lat: 29.3608, Long: -89.2308, 2.) Octave Pass at Lat: 29.2009, Long: -89.2509, & Lat: 29.2054, Long: -89.2338, 3.) Sawdust Bend at Lat: 29.1412,  Long: -89.2269,                  4.) Johnson’s Pass at Lat: 29.1275, Long:  -89.2094, 5.) South Pass Campground at Lat: 29.1059, Long:  -89.2367, all within Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. 

 CHARACTER OF WORK:  Construct and maintain four new crevasses, two in Main Pass and two in Octave Pass and maintenance dredge the heads of three existing crevasses: Sawdust Bend, Johnson’s Pass and South Pass Campground. The dredging activity will involve either barge mounted backhoes, dragline excavators or hydraulic cutter head dredges. A minimum of 323,603 cubic yards of native materials would be dredged if mechanical dredging is used and the dredged materials would be side-cast into approximately 40 acres of water bottoms along either side of the crevasses and stacked to an elevation conducive for creating and/or restoring riverine/tidal marsh habitat. A maximum of 1,089,078 cubic yards of native materials would be dredged if hydraulic cutter head dredges are used and the dredged materials would be delivered via pipe line into approximately 397 acres of open water areas adjacent to the crevasses and stacked to an elevation conducive for creating and/or restoring riverine/tidal marsh habitat. To construct the four new crevasses and maintenance dredge the three existing crevasses approximately 3.6 acres of herbaceous wetlands, 3.2 acres of shallow non-vegetated bottoms and 8.2 acres of deeper non-vegetated water bottoms would dredged. The dredge materials would be side cast and/or delivered via pipeline into primarily non vegetated areas to create and/or restore approximately 40 to 397 acres of combined riverine/tidal wetland and shallow water habitats.  The project is proposed to result in a substantial long term gain of riverine/tidal marsh and shallow water habitats and no mitigation is proposed. Other equipment proposed to be used during construction are airboats, backhoes, bulldozers/grader and marsh buggies.
