                      OF SELECT NATIONWIDE PERMITS – 2017          


On January 6, 2017, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) published a notice in Part III of Federal Register 82 FR 1860 announcing the reissuance of the Nationwide Permits (NWPs), general conditions, and definitions with some modifications. The Corps also announced the issuance of two new NWPs, one new general condition, and five new definitions.  The goal of the NWP program is to protect the aquatic environment and the public interest while effectively authorizing activities that have minimal individual and cumulative effects on the aquatic environment. 


On January 21, 2017, the Chicago District published its intention to revoke previously suspended nationwide permits, and add nine regional conditions.  For information on the NWP program in the Chicago District, visit our website.  Interested parties were invited to provide comments on the proposed revocation and regional conditions.  No written comments were received during the comment period.


On March 17, 2017, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Great Lakes and Ohio River Division Engineer, revoked selected NWPs at the request of the Chicago District.  The approval of the proposed revocation concludes this process.  Attached is an index of all permits revoked or retained by the Chicago District, as well as information on the new NWPs and their conditions.
