Individual Permits

There are two types of Individual Permits in the Savannah District: Letter of Permission and Standard Permit.

Letters of Permission

Letters of Permission (LOPs) are an abbreviated process used to authorize minor projects with no significant environmental impacts, and should encounter no substantive opposition. Examples of projects authorized under an LOP are a small community dock or a large private single family dock. LOPs typically take 60 days to process from the time a complete application is received by the US Army Corps of Engineers.

Standard Permits

Standard Permits (SPs) are issued for projects that could have more than a minimal impact on the environment. An example of a project authorized under this permit is a large commercial development. Simple SPs typically take 120 days to process from the time a complete application is received by Corps.
