Section 404 of the Clean Water Act

Congressional Reporting for CWA Section 404 (2014 - 2016)

In accordance with EPA's fiscal years 2014 and 2015 appropriations, the Agency is required to submit regular reports to Congress regarding review of public notices issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for proposed Clean Water Act Section 404 standard permit actions. The following reports starting in April 2014 list all of the public notices for proposed standard permit actions received by EPA, the location of the project, the extent of the Agency's review and the number of days under review for each project where EPA sent a letter.  Note, the reports for the first and second quarter of Fiscal Year 2014 only include public notices for proposed standard permit actions where the Agency commented in a letter. Projects continue to show up in subsequent reports until a final permit decision from the Corps of Engineers is reported. All completed reports can be found on this page.
