  • Proposal for a New Regional Condition to Nationwide Permit 12 for the State of Texas

    A proposed regional condition to NWP 12 for just the Fort Worth District was initially published for comment as regional condition 11. It was withdrawn. After additional evaluation, the Division Engineer modified his decision and proposes a statewide regional condition requiring notification to the Corps prior to construction of new water intake structures that include discharges of fill into waters of the United States.

  • SWT-2017-291

    Expiration date: 8/11/2017

    Oklahoma Landfill Holdings, Inc. proposes to expand the existing Southern Plains Landfill. The proposed expansion would include the filling of existing wetlands and portions of unnamed tributaries to Dry Creek and unnamed tributaries to Soldier Creek. Approximately 20,000 cubic yards (cy) of clean soil fill would be placed in 0.3 acre of wetlands, 3.5 acres of stock ponds, and 5,468 linear feet of streams.

  • SWT-2016-221

    Expiration date: 7/20/2017

    The application is for an After-the-Fact Permit for the unauthorized placement of fill into waters of the United States for construction of a commercial development.

  • SWT-2017-47

    Expiration date: 6/10/2017

    Project Description: The application is to accommodate expansion of the existing Plains Marketing Cushing facility. The new expansion project is designed to accommodate six individual 270,000 barrel (11.34 million gallons) crude oil storage tanks. Construction of one of the planned six tanks, including required appurtenances, will result in permanent impacts to aquatic features that are jurisdictional waters of the United States. An upland impoundment within the site to capture and temporarily retain stormwater runoff prior to discharging into an unnamed tributary to Mustang Creek is part of the parcel design. If granted, this will be an after-the-fact permit. Plains self-reported that their construction department did not obtain corporate-internal environmental clearance prior to initiating construction. Permanent impacts to preexisting jurisdictional aquatic features have been estimated, based on historic aerial photography, after-the-fact technical review, and delineation of the surrounding area and the disturbed site in its current condition. Construction work believed by Plains to permanently impact jurisdictional aquatic features was voluntarily halted by Plains upon self-reporting. Construction work in upland areas for the additional five tanks has continued.
