NWO-2017-0075-PIE - 7/19/2017: The District Engineer has received a request from the South Dakota Department of Transportation (Sponsor) to modify the South Dakota Department of Transportation Statewide Umbrella Wetland Mitigation Bank to include the addition of a new wetland mitigation bank (Mitigation Bank) located in the Vermillion River geographic service area. The Corps is soliciting comments on the Mitigation Bank. The Mitigation Bank described herein is not being proposed by the Corps, but by the Sponsor; the Corps will evaluate the Mitigation Bank according to the standards and criteria established in 33 CFR part 332 – Compensatory Mitigation for Losses of Aquatic Resources. The Sponsor proposes to establish the Mitigation Bank in the East ½ of Section 36, Township 98 North, Range 52 West, Turner County, South Dakota. The Mitigation Bank would be approximately 175 acres in size and is currently used for row crop agriculture. The Sponsor proposes to restore and enhance ten prairie pothole wetland basins by removing existing drainage enhancements (i.e., ditches and drain tile) and converting farmed uplands to prairie grasses. If the Mitigation Bank is approved and successful the Sponsor may use wetland credits to offset unavoidable impacts to waters of the United States which result from highway projects which have received Department of the Army authorization. At the time of this public notice, the Sponsor has not secured fee title ownership of the Mitigation Bank; however, the Sponsor is pursuing acquisition of the property.
Expiration date: 8/19/2017

NWO-2013-2560-PIE - 5/12/2017: The City of Sioux Falls requests authorization to improve a one-mile section of 85th Street from Minnesota Avenue to Cliff Avenue in Sioux Falls. A paved rural section roadway is proposed to be constructed at this time, however, a full, four-lane urban section roadway will be constructed in the future. The proposed project consists of constructing one through-lane in each direction, improving ditch drainage, and culvert crossings as well as improving the subgrade and grading the profile to meet the future urban corridor needs. The proposed paved rural section roadway is anticipated to meet the existing traffic volumes until the four-lane urban section roadway can be constructed. The project also includes improvements to the storm water infrastructure system that are needed to account for positive conveyance and flood prevention. A total of 1.00 acre of wetlands will be impacted by construction of the project.

2017 Nationwide Permit Reissuance and South 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 18, 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 South Dakota.
Expiration date: 3/18/2022
