In accordance with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers WRDA 214 guidance, the Omaha District uses funds primarily for staff to expedite permit application review for these non-Federal public entities.
To ensure funds received from a non-Federal public entity will not impact impartial decision making, the Omaha District:
- Follows all laws, regulations, policies, and procedures as would be required for any non-WRDA 214 permit application evaluation.
Has all final permit decisions reviewed by at least one level above the normal decision-maker, unless the decision-maker is the Omaha District Engineer
Posts all final permit decisions for WRDA 214 entities on the Omaha District web page
