SECTION 10: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is directed by Congress through Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (33 USC 403) to regulate all work or structures in or affecting the course, condition, or capacity of navigable waters of the United States.  The intent of this law is to protect the navigable capacity of waters important to interstate commerce.

    Certain NWPs require project proponents to notify Corps district engineers of their proposed activities prior to conducting the activities authorized by those NWPs, so that the district engineers can make case-specific determinations of NWP eligibility. The notification takes the form of a pre-construction notification (PCN). The purpose of a PCN is to give the district engineer an opportunity to review a proposed NWP activity to ensure that the proposed activity qualifies for NWP authorization. In most cases, the district engineer has 45 days after receipt of a complete PCN to determine whether the proposed activity qualifies for NWP authorization or requires another form of Corps authorization. More information on when an activity requires a PCN can be found in the Federal Register Notice:
