  • SPECIAL PUBLIC NOTICE - Regional General Permit for Emergency Actions

    Expiration date: 9/23/2012

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Albuquerque District (Corps), is proposing to issue Regional General Permit (RGP) NM-12-01. 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 within the state of New Mexico. 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). Examples of work that maybe undertaken under this permit, upon authorization by the District Engineer (DE), include but are not limited to: • Levee construction, rebuilding or maintenance. • Removal of accumulated sediment, debris or vegetation to prevent or mitigate the emergency situation. • Bank stabilization to prevent or minimize erosion or the loss of structures such as bridges. • Debris containment structures. • Construction of diversion channels and flow deflection structures. This public notice is to inform interested parties of the proposed RGP NM-12-01 and to solicit comments.

  • SPECIAL PUBLIC NOTICE - Final Map and Drawing Standards for the South Pacific Division Regulatory Program

    This Special Public Notice establishes final standards and guidelines for maps and drawings submitted as part of delineations and applications for U.S. Army permits and jurisdictional determinations. The intent of these standards is to improve the quality and consistency of maps and drawings and simplify and improve review and processing by Corps Regulatory project managers. We estimate that at least 70-80% of maps and drawings submitted to the Corps Regulatory Program in South Pacific Division (comprised of Albuquerque, San Francisco, Sacramento, and Los Angeles districts) already meet the majority of these standards. By adhering to a single standard for maps and drawings, applicants and consultants should have a clear and concise product, and project managers should be able to provide permit decisions and jurisdictional determinations in a more consistent and timely manner. In addition, electronic mapping of permit-related maps and drawings will enable data sharing with other resource agencies for coordination of mitigation decision-making.
