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

Posted: 7/28/2017

Expiration date: 8/28/2017


 

On January 6, 2017, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) published notice in the Federal Register announcing the reissuance of Nationwide Permits (NWPs), general conditions, and definitions with some modifications. The NWPs became effective on March 19, 2017, and will expire on March 18, 2022. On March 28, 2017, the Southwestern Division Engineer approved regional conditions for the NWPs in Texas. Regional conditions provide additional protections for the aquatic environment by ensuring that the NWPs authorize only those activities with minimal adverse effects on the aquatic environment. The Districts in Texas have posted the regional conditions for NWPs on their Regulatory webpages:

http://www.swf.usace.army.mil/; http://www.swg.usace.army.mil/; http://www.swt.usace.army.mil/; and http://www.spa.usace.army.mil/

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 It was withdrawn.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.
