Abstract: The purpose of the proposed action is to collect the data and information necessary for further engineering design of the 2016 West Shore Lake Pontchartrain Environmental Impact Statement (WSLP EIS) levee alignment, including information that would be used to determine whether a levee alignment shift is preferable to the current alignment. The stockpile and staging areas are needed for construction related activities whether the 2016 WSLP EIS alignment is built or a shift occurs in the future. The location of the proposed action is in St. John the Baptist and St. Charles Parishes, near the communities of Montz in St. Charles Parish, and Laplace, Reserve, and Grayville in St. John the Baptist Parish, Louisiana. The addition of the option to purchase mitigation bank credits into the mitigation plan approved in the 2016 WSLP EIS also provides greater flexibility and potential time savings in satisfying the BLH mitigation requirements for this project. Under this option, in-kind BLH credits could be purchased from any bank with released credits in the Lake Pontchartrain Basin watershed.
