Final Public Notice NWP in Oklahoma

Posted: 1/20/2017

Expiration date: 2/17/2017


 On January 6, 2017, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the reissuance of all 50 existing nationwide permits (NWPs), general conditions, and definitions, with some modifications from prior versions. The Corps also issued two new NWPs, one new general condition, and five new definitions. The 2017 NWPs will go into effect on March 19, 2017, and will expire on March 18, 2022.

With the publication of this Federal Register notice, Corps districts will begin finalizing their regional conditions for the new and reissued NWPs. Regional conditions, for the 2017 NWPs, will provide additional protection for the aquatic environment, and will help ensure that the NWPs authorize only those activities with no more than minimal adverse environmental effects. Regional conditions will help ensure protection of high value waters within the Southwestern Division for Tulsa District.
