14-524, Waterloo Operations, LLC proposes to construct a dry bulk conveying system from the Mississippi River to their facility in Ascension Parish Louisiana

Published July 11, 2016

Waterloo Operations, LLC proposes to construct a dry bulk conveying system from the Mississippi River to their existing facility in Ascension Parish Louisiana.  Specifically, the project consists of the construction of a deepwater ship dock along with mechanical conveying systems that will move dry bulk product from a vessel to a landside facility for storage and resale.  The dimension of the proposed conveyor structure is approximately 1,330 feet long by 17 feet wide.  There are three mooring structures in the batture, and a total of seven dolphins in the River (three mooring dolphins and four breasting dolphins).  The conveyor system is supported by vertical "bent'' frames. Bent locations B1 through B15 utilize pile supported foundations and will be located on the river (unprotected) side of the levee.  Bent locations B16 through B20 are resting on shallow foundations commonly referred to as abutments on the levee. Bent locations B21 through B35 utilize pile supported foundations and are located on the Highway 75 (protected) side of the levee outside the Section 408 review area.
