Programmatic General Permits

A Programmatic General Permit purpose is to reduce the duplication of permitting effort between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and another agency. The majority of the categories of work authorized under a PGP are for minor actions which are currently authorized by existing USACE Nationwide and Regional General Permits. The implementation of the PGP will eliminate the need for separate approval from Corps for minor work located in waters of the United States, including navigable waters, when that work is authorized by the a separate agency. Below is a list of the available Programmatic General Permits within the Savannah District. For more information on how to apply please select the appropriate PGP.
