Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mississippi River Valley Regional Planning and Environmental Division South, has prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) #547 to evaluate the potential impacts of constructing and operating a new sanitary wastewater effluent pump station and force main discharge from the existing Hillaryville Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to the Mississippi River. Hillaryville is located on the east bank of the Mississippi River in Ascension Parish in south Louisiana, approximately 59 miles northwest of New Orleans, and 30 miles south east of Baton Rouge. The existing Hillaryville WWTP is owned and operated by the Parish of Ascension Department of Public Utilities. The WWTP is located at the north end of Brown Road, approximately 1,400 feet from its intersection with LA Highway 22, and between the communities of Darrow and Burnside, Louisiana. EA #547 has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Council on Environmental Quality’s Regulations, as reflected in the USACE Engineering Regulation ER 200-2-2. This EA provides sufficient information on the potential adverse and beneficial environmental effects to allow the District Commander, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District (MVN), to make an informed decision on the appropriateness of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI).
