  • Regional General Permit for Repair and Protection Activities in Emergency Situations

    Update: This permit authorizes discharges of dredged or fill material into Waters of the United States, including wetlands, and/or work or structures in Navigable Waters of the United States for necessary repair and protection measures associated with an emergency situation. An “emergency situation” is present where there is a clear, sudden, unexpected, and imminent threat to life or property demanding immediate action to prevent or mitigate loss of, or damage to, life, health, property or essential public services (i.e., a situation that could potentially result in an unacceptable hazard to life or a significant loss of property if corrective action requiring a permit is not undertaken immediately). The permit issued on January 24, 2013 has been updated to reflect water quality certification information for tribes that do not have certification authority. The changes appear on page 9 and state that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has not issued Section 401 certification for tribal lands in New Mexico where the tribe does not have water quality certification authority, therefore certification has been waived. The Corps recommends that project proponents contact the tribe directly prior to conducting work on tribal lands.
