Omaha District Nationwide Permit Information

With the publication of the 2021 NWPs in the Federal Register, modifying 12 NWPs and issuing 4 new NWPs, the Corps divisions finalized regional conditions for these 16 NWPs. Regional conditions will provide additional protection for the aquatic environment and will help ensure that the NWPs authorize only those activities with no more than minimal adverse environmental effects. Regional conditions will help ensure protection of high value waters within the Omaha District. Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 401 Water Quality Certifications (WQC) have been issued for Section 404 NWP activities by the certifying authorities within the Omaha District area of responsibility. The WQCs were accepted by the Northwestern Division Commander and any conditions of the WQC are added to the 16 NWPs as regional conditions.

The remaining 40 NWPs from 2017 and their associated regional conditions and WQCs remain in effect through their scheduled March 18, 2022 expiration date or until the Corps issues a final rule reissuing those NWPs, whichever comes first.
