Permits

The mission of the Corps of Engineers Regulatory Program is to protect the Nation’s aquatic resources, while allowing reasonable development by federal, state and local agencies, special interest groups, and private citizens through a fair and balanced permit program.  The Corps’ decision-making process considers the interests of all parties and results in decisions that are fair and equitable and that allow for the reasonable use of private property, business development and economic growth.  At the same time, these decisions must neutralize the impacts of proposed work in order to protect the waters of the United States.

A permit is NOT issued or valid until signed by the lake Resource Manager.
