New NWP Changes to Be Published Tomorrow in the Fed. Reg.

Updated: Sep 15, 2020

The Corps is scheduled to publish the proposed changes to its section 404 Nationwide Permits (NWPs) in tomorrow's Federal Register (September 15, 2020). See this link. https://s3.amazonaws.com/public-inspection.federalregister.gov/2020-17116.pdf


Here's a link to the Sept. 15 Fed. Reg. Notice. https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/09/15/2020-17116/proposal-to-reissue-and-modify-nationwide-permits


For more information on the proposed changes, see my August 4 and 6 blogposts. As I have noted before, and in this op ed piece I wrote in The Hill with Betsy Sutherland, this is an important rulemaking that deserves attention.
