The Nebraska Regulatory Office of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Omaha District has been working to be more responsive to the needs of the public. For the Regulatory Program, we know there is great interest in allowing information associated with pre-construction notifications, permit applications, and other requests in a digital format, instead of paper.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nebraska Regulatory Office strongly encourages all submittals be provided in digital form, eliminating any need to send a paper copy. The Nebraska Regulatory Office has been authorized and encouraged to telework from home throughout this crisis to help slow the spread of the virus while continuing to execute the regulatory program and provide customer service. Submitting requests to our office electronically avoids the necessity of handling paper documents, eliminates any possibility of pathogen transmittals, and allows our regulatory project managers electronic access to the requests while teleworking via the internet.
The Nebraska Regulatory Office will accept electronic submittals during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are submitting information associated with a new request, such as a permit application or pre-construction notification, please submit it to NE404Reg@usace.army.mil for initial in-processing. (NOTE: Emails including attachments cannot exceed 40Mb; attachments should be clearly labeled, and consolidated into one PDF when possible).
If you require assistance with an active request, we encourage you to send digital files directly to the project manager assigned to the action. We also recommend that email is the best option for communicating with the project manager at this time since they may be teleworking. If you do not know who is assigned to your action, please send your request to our general email box, or call our office at 402-896-0896.
We will continue to accept paper copies of your requests if you are unable to submit them electronically. However, evaluating your requests may be delayed until someone in the office is able to scan and convert your paper documents to digital documents available to the assigned project manager.
Further information and instructions regarding submitting requests electronically can be found at: https://www.nwo.usace.army.mil/Missions/Regulatory-Program/Nebraska/
If you have any questions, please contact the Nebraska Regulatory Office at 402-896-0896 or send an email to NE404Reg@usace.army.mil
