The overall mission of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Regulatory Program (Regulatory) is to protect the nation's aquatic resources while allowing reasonable development through fair, flexible and balanced permit decisions. Regulatory oversees the permitting of water supply reservoirs pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) and if necessary, Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act (RHA). Accordingly, before a reservoir may be built, a Department of the Army (DA) permit must be obtained if the construction involves the discharge of dredged or fill material into waters of the United States, including wetlands. Regulatory is responsible for managing and evaluating permit applications to ensure that the project complies with all Federal laws and policies and is not contrary to the public’s interest. Regulatory also must ensure that environmental impacts are avoided and minimized to the maximum practicable extent and that compensatory mitigation is provided to offset unavoidable impacts to the aquatic environment.
