NWO-2017-0429-BIS - 4/24/2018: Ducks Unlimited (DU) has submitted an alternate site plan to include with its Umbrella Mitigation Bank Program Instrument. Comments on the prospectus and original site plan were solicited about the same time last year. After considering the comments, DU was advised to move forward with an Umbrella Mitigation Bank Instrument. Due to the uncertainty of credit sales in the Devils Lake Regional Service Area (RSA), DU has proposed an alternate site 3 miles west of Grafton, North Dakota on the north side of Highway 17 in the Red River Basin RSA. The legal description for the property is the SE1/4 of Section 16, Township 157 North, Range 53 West, Walsh County, North Dakota. [Lat: 48.415277 degrees North, Long: -97.472778 degrees West]

2017 Nationwide Permit Reissuance and North Dakota Regional Conditions - 3/18/2017: On January 6, 2017, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) published the notice in the Federal Register announcing the reissuance of all 50 existing nationwide permits (NWPs), general conditions, and definitions with some modifications. The Corps also issued two new NWPs, one new general condition, and five new definitions. The 2017 NWPs will go into effect on March 19, 2017, and will expire on March 18, 2022. After publication of the FR notice, Corps districts finished development of regional conditions for the reissued NWPs. Regional conditions provide additional protection by ensuring that NWPs authorize only those activities with minimal adverse effects on the aquatic environment. Regional conditions also help ensure protection of high value waters within specific geographic areas. By this public notice the Northwestern Division Engineer establishes the enclosed regional conditions applicable to the NWP program in North Dakota.
Expiration date: 4/30/2017
