On February 21, 2012, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) published notice in the Federal Register announcing the reissuance of all existing nationwide permits (NWPs), general conditions, and definitions with some modifications.
On March 19, 2012, the current NWP authorizations became effective. These authorizations will expire on March 18. 2017. The Corps issued two new NWPs, three new general conditions, and three new definitions. The Corps also issued a final Decision Document in March 2012 for each of the 52 Nationwide Permits.
All NWP authorizations are verified with General Conditions, as outlined in the Feb. 21, 2012 Federal Register and associated corrections, published on March 19, 2012. There are also specific Regional Conditions that have been added for certain NWP authorizations issued within the Walla Walla District. Further, on a project-by-project basis, Special Conditions may be also issued with the final NWP verification.
