2017 Nationwide Permits Reissuance and Wyoming 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 Federal Register 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 Wyoming.
