Regional General Permits

Collapse All Expand All

A reg­ional­ general permit (RGP) is a Department of the Army authorization that is issued on a regional (limited geographic scope) basis for a category of activities when those activities are substantially similar in nature and cause only minimal individual and cumulative impacts on the aquatic environment.

Each RGP has specific terms and conditions of which all mu­st be met in order for an applicant to qualify for an RGP. If your project does not comply with all of the terms and conditions, authorization may be received via another type of Department of the Army permit; however, the process will likely be a lengthier process. Therefore, to expedite our review of your application, we recommend you modify your project to meet all terms and conditions of the applicable RGP.
