     General Permits have proven to be an effective method to authorize certain projects within the New Orleans District in a timely manner without the need for a public notice and its related costs. Evaluating applications under the general permit procedures for projects that qualify because of their minor impacts allows for better use of personnel resources, yet still allows adequate impact review. The general permit GP-159 (previously known as NOD-159) was originally issued on March 31, 1996, and the current time extension will expire on July 31, 2022. A copy of the general permit is attached.

     Interested parties are requested to review the enclosed general permit authorizing dredging and/or excavation activities in existing waterbodies including the removal of debris from within channels for the purpose of maintaining drainage within the boundaries of the New Orleans District.

     Specific legislation requiring Department of the Army permits for work of this nature are: [X] Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of March 3, 1899 (30 Stat. 1151: 33 USC 403); and/or [X] Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (86 Stat. 816: 33 USC 1344).

      Application has also been made to the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, Office of Environmental Services, for a Water Quality Certification (WQC) in accordance with statutory contained in Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950, Title 30, Chapter 11, Part IV, Section 2074 A(3) and provisions of Section 401 of the Clean Water Act (P.L. 95-217).
