Title: Draft 401 Water Quality Certification for Army Corps General 404 Permits available for public comment 
Description: Certification is requested by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) for 23 General Permits (GPs) under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, that will cover projects involving minimal wetland impacts in coastal and inland waters and wetlands in New Hampshire (Activity). The intent of the GPs is to expedite the review of these Activities and to simplify the permit application review processes for the Applicant and NHDES Wetlands Bureau, as the permit review processes are very similar relative to federal and state statutory authority. The GPs will replace the existing New Hampshire (NH) State Programmatic General Permit (PGP) issued in 2012 that is due to expire in August, 2017. The Corpsí draft GPs are also available for review on the NHDES website provided above.
