Expiration date: 4/21/2022
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Norfolk District (Corps) proposes the issuance of two 2022 State Programmatic General Permits (SPGPs) to the people of the Commonwealth of Virginia. The SPGPs authorize the discharge of dredged/fill material in non-tidal waters of the United States (WOTUS), including wetlands, and that is associated with certain residential, commercial, institutional, and recreational and linear transportation projects. The purpose of the SPGPs is to reduce duplicative review for activity-specific projects where state and federal regulations overlap regulatory purview. The SPGPs will provide streamlined review of permit applications processed by the Corps and Virginia Department of Environmental (VDEQ). Public comments should be received by April 21, 2022.
