2017 Nationwide Permits Reissuance

Nationwide Permits (NWP) are a type of general permit issued nationally by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).  The NWPs are intended to regulate with little, if any, delay or paperwork certain activities having no more than minimal adverse environmental impacts under the USACE Regulatory Program authorities.  There are currently 50 NWPs with 31 general conditions.  The NWPs are valid for 5 years from the date of issuance. The current NWPs expire on March 18, 2017.  Per regulation, the NWPs must be reissued every 5 years.   

 

On January 6, 2017, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) published the notice in the Federal Register announcing the reissuance of all 50 existing nationwide permits (NWPs), general conditions, and definitions with some modifications. 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.
