SAVANNAH, Ga. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is introducing its new Regulatory Request System, an online application portal that allows the public to submit permit applications and other information when requesting permission to dredge, fill or conduct activities in jurisdictional wetlands and waters of the U.S.

RRS is available at

RRS users can now submit individual permit applications, general permit pre-construction notifications, jurisdictional determination requests, and other information needed during the permit evaluation process using easy-to-follow online submission forms. Applicants will also be able to track the status of their requests using a user-friendly dashboard.

RRS will benefit the applicant by eliminating the burden associated with the preparation and mailing of paper applications. It also reduces some of the effort associated with processing applications and data entry making the permitting process more efficient.

USACE initiated a beta version of the system in January 2024 and is working to expand RRS capabilities to accept joint permit applications as part of a second phase of the system’s implementation, scheduled for December 2024.
