Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to impact 3.22 acres of wetlands by discharging approximately 11,987 cubic yards of fill material to be used in the construction of the base of a facility at two feet above natural grade and three-foot-high ring levees.  An additional 2,034 cubic yards of limestone fill will be discharged to construct the surface of the facility and to construct an access road.  The proposed flow line 1 will be installed via horizontal directional drilling (HDD) from the proposed facility to a temporary workspace on the north side of Highway 87.  It will then be continued via HDD parallel to Highway 87 to an existing pipeline to the east.  The proposed flow line 2 will be installed via HDD from the proposed facility to the south side of Highway 87 and tied to an existing 6-inch-diameter pipeline.  A 40-foot by 80-foot temporary workspace and a 5-foot by 5-foot by 5-foot excavation will be require at each tie-in location.  Each temporary workspace will be matted and the spoil from the excavation will be temporarily side cast and used as backfill immediately upon project completion.
