Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to permanently discharge fill into approximately 3.30 acres of palustrine emergent (PEM) wetlands for the construction of a new Shell-Zydeco Metering Station and access road within the Big Hill crude oil distribution system.  The new metering station will measure 154-foot by 154-foot (23,716-square-foot) and be constructed on a 4-foot-high pad of fill material and paved crushed stone.  The crushed limestone access road will be 4,850-foot-long by 24-foot-wide and encompass an area of 116,400-square-foot.  There will also be temporary discharge of fill into 7.2 acres PEM wetlands within the construction workspaces and laydown areas.  This temporary discharge includes the covering of ditches at the Farm-to-Market (FM) 365/access road intersection to allow larger construction/transport vehicles to make the turn in to the access road leading to the new metering station.  This intersection and all temporary workspaces/laydown areas will be restored back to original contours once construction is complete.
