Corps of Engineers/Ecology to hold events to discuss their authority
An event in Montesano from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is meant to serve as a “Corps/Ecology Interagency Regulatory Refresher” and community outreach.
In an announcement, the Corps announced that they are working with the Washington State Department of Ecology to conduct free outreach events open to the public.
The Corps will visit 7 counties, including meetings in Montesano on March 24 and Long Beach on May 12.
These events are intended to provide a brief overview of each agency’s regulatory authority as well as coordination efforts between the agencies.
“This series of events is intended to foster and facilitate efficient and effective working relationships with the public, applicants, consultants, local municipalities, and agencies.”
During the events, the Corps says that they will provide information regarding authorization under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899.
Ecology will be at the events providing information regarding authorization under Section 401 of the CWA and their role in other state and local law implementation.
Following the presentations, Corps and Ecology county-specific representatives will be available for questions and discussion as time allows.
Due to limited space, registration is required. Please RSVP to [email protected].
