New England District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Webinar on the Proposed New England General Permits

September 11, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

At EBC’s request, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will conduct a webinar to explain the proposed New England General Permits (NE GPs), answer any questions and get your input. The webinar is limited to the first 200 people that call and log in. Pre-registration is not required.

Here’s some background:

The New England District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), is proposing to suspend the existing general permits in each of the six New England States and issue the NE GPs. Similar to the six state GPs, the NE GPs would authorize activities in waters of the U.S. within the six New England States. The Corps is considering this for several reasons, including consistency with our national program and among the New England states, streamlining Regulatory processes, and facilitating review of projects by other agencies and interstate groups.

The Corps initially issued a public notice in June 2013, issued a second public notice on July 31, 2014 with a 45-day comment period (expires on Sep. 15, 2014), and plans to make a decision in Dec. 2014. The July 2014 Public Notice and a copy of the proposed NE GPs are located HERE along with related documents.
