Submitting E-Applications to the Savannah District, Regulatory Division

The Savannah District Regulatory Program is currently processing paperless permit applications, which is the preferred method to save time and money for applicants and the Corps.  Any file submittals over 25 MB can be electronically submitted to our office using the SAFE site (, however, due to a short retrieval window, we first recommend contacting a specific office (by email below) to request a SAFE drop-off link for your use.  The DoD SAFE site can transmit files up to 8 GB total. 
Applications should be sent to the Piedmont Branch or the Coastal Branch, listed below.
The location of your project (within a specific county on the map below) will identify the Corps office within your area.  Forms and other information related to different types of applications can be found under "Documentation" and "Fillable Forms".  
If preferred, Savannah District will accept paper applications by hard copy mail.  Mailing addresses to specific Corps offices are provided below.  



For any initial project related questions, please contact our General inquiries inbox.  Permit e-applications should be submitted through either the Piedmont Branch or Coastal Branch email address, based on the location of your project.  All GDOT e-applications should be submitted through the GDOT email inbox.
