Full Public Notice          Proposed Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes an after-the-fact permit to resolve unauthorized discharge of fill material into waters of the United States associated with the installation of box culverts at three locations on the applicant’s property.  The unauthorized activity consisted of discharging approximately 125 cubic yards, consisting of 35 cubic yards of stabilized concrete sand, 89 cubic yards of compacted clay fill and 1.4 cubic yards of crushed concrete base into a tributary to Cotton Bayou (McAdams Ditch) for the installation of three culvert crossings.  The discharge of 125 cubic yards of fill for the three unauthorized culverts, filled 160 linear feet of the tributary to Cotton Bayou.  The first crossing measures 300 square feet and consists of two rows of 60-inch by 96-inch box culverts.  The second crossing measures 360 square feet and consists of  two rows of 60-inch by 96-inch box culverts.  The third crossing measures 800 square feet and also consists of two rows of 60-inch by 96-inch box culverts.  The purpose of the two unauthorized crossings in the tributary to Cotton Bayou is for livestock access and segregate the area into two pastures.  The third crossing on the north of the tributary was constructed to provide access to a future home site.  The installation was done with a 300 series hydraulic excavator, this allowed the preparation of the stabilized concrete sand, culverts and clay fill dirt to be compacted in place for all three crossings.
