Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has received a request for permission to alter a USACE project pursuant to Section 14 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899, codified at 33 U.S.C. Section 408 (“Section 408”). The New Orleans District has prepared this environmental assessment (EA #551) to evaluate impacts associated with the requested alteration that would replace a 400 foot section of the Larose to Golden Meadow (LGM) Hurricane Protection Levee in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana with a T-wall. The requested alteration is part of the Louisiana Department of Transportation Louisiana (LA 1) Improvements Project which includes construction of an elevated 17-mile four lane controlled access highway between Golden Meadow and Fourchon, Louisiana. A decision on a Section 408 request is a federal action, and therefore subject to the National Environmental Policy Act and other environmental compliance requirements. USACE has authority under Section 408 only over the specific activities or portions of activities that have the potential to alter, use or occupy a USACE project. Thus, the scope of analysis for this NEPA document is limited to the area of the requested alteration and those adjacent areas that could be directly or indirectly affected by the requested alteration within the USACE project boundaries, specifically the Larose to Golden Meadow Hurricane Protection Levee.
