Full Public Notice           Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to modify an existing permit to remove previously authorized impacts to 2.39 acres of palustrine forested (PFO) wetlands, and add impacts to 0.84 acre of PFO wetlands during the construction of a track and loop facility at the Port Arthur Terminal.  The rail spur located near State Highway 73 in the northwestern portion of the project site was originally included in the permit as permanent PFO impacts (2.39 acres).  The original design called for this area to be cleared and filled to accommodate future track expansion options.  The applicant has determined that this portion of the project design will not be constructed at this time.  The 0.84-acre area of wetlands within the southwest corner of the facility, referenced as PFO 3 (sheet 4 of 4 in the attached plans), will now be adversely impacted due to grading and drainage improvements between the lead track and the loop track.  This change in project design results in an overall net decrease in permanent PFO wetland impacts from 13.99 acres to 12.44 acres, but the new proposed impacts to  0.84 acres of PFO would be in an area that was to be previously avoided.
