Title: Reissuance and Issuance of Nationwide Permits 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) issues nationwide permits to authorize specific categories of activities in jurisdictional waters and wetlands that have no more than minimal individual and cumulative adverse environmental effects. Nationwide permits cannot be issued for a period of more than five years. The issuance and reissuance of nationwide permits must be done every five years to continue the Nationwide Permit Program. Currently, there are 50 nationwide permits, and those nationwide permits expire on March 18, 2017. On June 1, 2016, the Corps proposed to reissue the 50 existing nationwide permits and, to issue new nationwide permits. One new permit proposed to authorize the removal of low-head dams, the other new permit proposed to authorize the construction and maintenance of living shorelines. This present action is for reissuing or issuing nationwide permits that would go into effect on March 19, 2017, to authorize regulated activities over the subsequent five years. The revisions to this rule will be reported in future status updates as part of DoD's retrospective plan under Executive Order 13563, completed in August 2011. DoD's full plan can be accessed at:!docketDetail;D=DOD-2011-OS-0036.
