NAME OF APPLICANT:  St Mary Parish, 500 Main Street, Franklin, Louisiana 70538.

LOCATION OF WORK:  Center Point: Lat 29º 38' 21.73"N / Long -91º 34' 41.03"W; Section 34 & 35, T16S-R9E; north shore of East Cote Blanche Bay on the east and west sides of the Jackson Bayou outlet, in St Mary Parish, Louisiana.

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The TV-04 Cote Blanche Hydrologic Restoration Project Maintenance-PVC Wall Extension includes the construction of two vinyl sheet pile walls which total +/- 2,678 linear feet and will tie into existing shoreline protection structures on their eastern and western terminuses.   Each structure will consist of one-quarter-inch wide vinyl sheet pile, supported by twelve-inch-diameter, 50-feet-long battered timber piles set on seven feet centers, with alternating placement on the north and south sides of the respective walls. A timber whaler will be installed between the timber piles and sheet pile to provide horizontal support.  The project will also include the relocation of approximately 60 cubic yards of rip rap from the western end of an existing shoreline protection structure to the east side of the Jackson Bayou outlet. Additionally, a two feet gap (fish gap) will be spaced every twenty linear feet of sheet pile and warning signs will be placed every 5' off the front toe of the wall. All work will be performed during mean high water to assure a minimum of 0.5 feet between the barge and existing mudline. *Approximately 0.2 acres of non-vegetated waterbottoms may be impacted as a result of the proposed project.*
