NAME OF APPLICANT:  Kelo McKay, ℅ Bottomland Consulting, LLC, ATTN: Brandon Melville, 2194 S. Fieldspan Road, Duson, Louisiana 70529.

LOCATION OF WORK:  Lot 24 within the Oak Hill Estates subdivision in Folsom, Louisiana, Saint Tammany Parish, as shown on the enclosed drawings.

Latitude: 30.60797/Longitude: -90.22672; Hydrologic Unit Code: 08090201 – Liberty Bayou Tchefuncte

The work described below was partially completed prior to obtaining a Department of the Army permit and was in violation of Section 301 of the Clean Water Act.  All legal issues concerning the unauthorized work have been deferred.

CHARACTER OF WORK:  ATF request to clear, grade, excavate, and deposit fill for a pond and single family residence.  Pond construction resulted in 546 cubic yards of material to be excavated, of which, 404 cubic yards of material was placed in jurisdictional wetlands to serve as a berm along a portion of the pond.  A total of 0.9 acres of jurisdictional wetlands were impacted at the site.  Approximately 0.30 acres were excavated and filled during pond construction.  The remaining 0.61 acres were cleared.  The applicant has proposed to contract with a Corps approved mitigation bank to compensate for pond construction (0.30 acres).  A restoration plan has been approved by this office to restore the remaining cleared areas (0.61 acres) with Willow oak, Laurel oak, blackgum, and mayhaw.   

The applicant may be required to fully or partially restore the project site to pre-project conditions, if issuance of the permit is determined to be contrary to the overall public interest.
