Mississippi River Terminal

Environmental Permitting - Louisiana
Mississippi River Terminal

Project Need

A private client required a wetland delineation and jurisdictional determination for a 40 acre site located along the Mississippi River. Wetland delineation was required both on the Batture and inland side of the Mississippi River levee to help guide the site layout, plan for environmental permitting, and understand any wetland mitigation costs that may be associated with the project.

Services Completed

Lord & Winter, LLC completed a wetland delineation and a jurisdictional determination submittal. We collaborated with New Orleans District for confirmation of Section 10 jurisdictional ordinary high water mark elevations along the Mississippi River Mile Marker of the project. Upland and wetland areas were delineated and a jurisdictional determination request was made to the US Corps of Engineers – New Orleans District.

Issue Resolved

As a result of the work, the Client obtained an Accepted Jurisdictional Determination (AJD) from the New Orleans District, US Army Corps of Engineers and has clarity on Clean Water Act jurisdictional resources at the parcel to assist in natural resource avoidance and environmental permitting during future development.
