  • Special Public Notice - Proposal for a New Regional Condition to Nationwide Permit 12 for the State of Texas

    Expiration date: 8/28/2017

    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 It was withdrawn.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. Goal of the Regional Condition: Removal of water via a regulated activity has the potential to result in more than minimal impacts to the aquatic environment by reducing/modifying in-stream flows, entrainment of aquatic species, transfer of invasive species, modification of reservoir control plans, etc. A regional condition that requires reporting to the Corps would enable assessment of potential impacts and ensure that intake structures authorized by NWP 12 would have no more than minimal impacts individually or cumulatively on aquatic resources and the public interest.
