The Army Corps of Engineers issued changes to the Nationwide Permit program in the Federal Register today. The changes will provide a uniform 45-days for the preconstruction notification review (some NWP’s used to have a 30-day review requirement). Also, the changes will now allow NWP certifications to be valid until NWP’s expire rather than a two year certification expiration. The current NWP’s are set to expire on Mach 18, 2017.
