  • Special Public Notice Concerning the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer's Role in Activities Associated with Oil and Natural Gas Production and Development of Class II Injection Wells and Pipelines

    The purpose of this public notice is to advise you of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) regulatory role as it applies to activities associated with oil and natural gas production and distribution, and development of Class II injection wells. Through our regulatory authorities, the USACE is charged with protecting the nation's regulated aquatic resources while allowing reasonable and necessary development that impacts those resources to go forward. Our intent is to develop and maintain an open dialogue with those in the oil and gas industry to provide early coordination during project planning to ensure that project related impacts to regulated aquatic resources are appropriately avoided, minimized, and/or mitigated to ensure the proposals are in compliance with applicable regulatory requirements.
