NAME OF APPLICANT: Naval Air Station, Joint Reserve Base, Attention: Emilie Wien, 400 Russell Avenue, Bldg. 552, Belle Chase, Louisiana 70143-5012.


LOCATIONS OF WORK: Adjacent to an airport runway at the Naval Air Station, Joint Reserve Base, at Latitude: 29.80134, Longitude -90.01649, Belle Chase, Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. Watershed HUC # 08090301.

EXISITNG CONDITIONS: A Department of Army permit was issued to this facility, on 21 October 2009, authorizing wetland vegetation clearing adjacent to the same runway. Compensatory mitigation was provided for the clearing/conversion of forested wetlands to herbaceous wetlands. The issue of bird/wildlife hazards adjacent to the runways continues to be a problem and the current request is to fill wetlands areas (bird attractants) adjacent to the runway to reduce bird strike hazards for airplanes operating at this base.


CHARACTER OF WORK:  Clear, fill, grade and maintain approximately 15 acres of wetland areas adjacent to the runway to reduce bird habitat to reduce flight (bird strike) hazards adjacent to the airport runway. Approximately 55, 923.6 cubic yards of Mississippi River sand would be used to fill the 15 acres of wetlands. No additional mitigation for the filling of the converted wetlands has been proposed.
