SPECIAL PUBLIC NOTICE: On July 13, 2022, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District (District) issued a public notice announcing its intent to develop one new regional general permit (RGP) and re-issue seven RGPs. The new RGP would combine coverage currently offered by stacking Nationwide Permits (NWP) 13 and 27. This new, single RGP would be used to authorize stream bank stabilization and accompanying habitat improvement activities. The seven RGPs proposed for re-issuance are intended to provide authorization for regulated minor activities in waters of the United States associated with beach creation and nourishment, beach raking, minor discharges, piers and docks, transportation, utilities, and wildlife ponds. The District is proposing to re-issue these RGPs in February 2023 with minor changes. This public notice solicits public comment on the attached 2023 RGPs proposed for use in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and within the exterior boundaries of Federally-recognized American Indian reservations.
