Categorical Permissions for Requests to Alter U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Civil Works Projects Pursuant to 33 USC 408 Notice of Availability

Posted: 4/21/2016

Expiration date: 5/22/2016


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District has prepared a Draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for Categorical Permissions for Requests to Alter U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Civil Works Projects Pursuant to 33 USC 408. The Corps receives numerous requests each year from private, public, tribal or other federal entities to alter civil works projects. When requests are received, they are evaluated to determine if the alteration would be injurious to the public interest or impair the usefulness of the Corps project. The purpose of the Programmatic Environmental Assessment is to develop categorical permissions to simplify the Section 408 review process for potential alterations that are similar in nature and have similar impacts. The proposed categorical permissions would be applicable to alterations to federal levees, channel modification projects, and the Missouri River Bank Stabilization and Navigation Project within the Corps civil works boundary.  The Corps is soliciting public comments on the draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment and FONSI during a 30-day review period that opens April 22, 2016, and closes May 22, 2016.
