MVN-2011-3205-CO

Published Nov. 8, 2013
Expiration date: 11/30/2013

NAME OF APPLICANT:  Colonial Pipeline Company, c/o ENVIRON International Corporation, 4714 Earhart Boulevard, Suite B, New Orleans, Louisiana 70125.

LOCATION OF WORK:  Within the Mississippi River Basin, in the Bayou Sara – Thompson Creek hydrologic unit (HUC 08070201), Sections 51, 52, 53, Township 4 south, Range 2 west, at 1476 Highway 61, Jackson, Louisiana, in East Feliciana Parish, as shown in the attached drawings.

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has a valid permit authorizing impacts to jurisdictional waters to allow for the expansion of an existing tank farm.  In this authorization, three butane lines were to exit the manifold/butane sphere and extend underground to an off-site loading facility north of the property.  The off-site loading facility has chosen to locate their facility at a site east of the tank farm rather than the site to the north.  Thus, the applicant has requested to modify this permit to install three 6-inch pipelines extending eastward from the manifold/butane sphere to the loading facility.  The proposed pipelines will parallel two existing 36-inch pipelines installed within a 70-foot right-of-way.  This right-of-way will be expanded to 120 feet to accommodate the additional pipelines.  Approximately 2,400 feet of pipelines will be installed via trenching, while 2,146 feet will be installed beneath Sandy Creek and Highway 61 via Horizontal Directional Drill. 

Wetland impacts authorized by the original authorization have been mitigated for.  The pipeline route was chosen to avoid wetland impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  No additional wetlands will be impacted by pipeline installation.  However, 0.1 acre of forested wetland will be cleared and incorporated into the maintained right-of-way to allow for aerial inspection of the pipelines.  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts the applicant proposes to purchase wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed.
