  • Nationwide Permit PCN Form

    A Pre-Construction Notification (PCN) application form was created and approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in February 2019. The use of this form is strongly encouraged to assist Corps districts with a streamlined evaluation of an applicant’s proposal. Submitting a completed PCN form is expected to reduce requests for additional information requests and should reduce the amount of time it takes the district engineer to conclude his or her review.

  • SWL 2019-00285

    Expiration date: 11/18/2019

    Pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S. Code 1344), notice is hereby given that Mr. Chris Thornton, Thornton Commercial Builders, 1855 McKennon Street, Suite 100, Conway, Arkansas 72032, has requested authorization for the placement of dredged and fill material in 6.2 acres of wetlands associated with the construction of an 11.5-acre assisted living facility with ancillary services for the residents of the assisted living village and the general public. These ancillary services may include, but are not limited to, a pharmacy, a restaurant, a salon, a small grocery/market, etc. The project site is located at 32 Bronnie Lane in Conway, Arkansas, and will provide access to Interstate 40 by way of Bronnie Lane. Mechanized land clearing, grading, and road construction will take place using suitable equipment (such as excavators, dump trucks, and bulldozers). The proposed project is located in wetlands associated with Stone Dam Creek that flows eastward into Lake Conway and then ultimately into Palarm Creek and the Arkansas River, in section 20, T. 5 N., R. 13 W., Faulkner County, Arkansas.

  • SWL 2017-00276-2

    Expiration date: 11/4/2019

    Pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S. Code 1344), notice is hereby given that Mr. Dave Meghreblian, PotlatchDeltic Corporation, 7 Chenal Club Boulevard, Little Rock, Arkansas 72223, has requested authorization for the placement of dredged and fill material in waters of the United States (WOTUS) associated with the construction of a 122-acre single family residential development referred to as Chenal Valley – Phase 30 and 31. Mechanized land clearing, grading, storm water detention, road construction, and residential home construction will take place using suitable equipment (such as excavators, dump trucks, and bulldozers). The project would impact (fill, culvert, and impound) approximately 3,722 linear feet of jurisdictional ephemeral stream; 933 linear feet of jurisdictional intermittent stream; and 0.8 acres of a jurisdictional man-made wetland. Implementation of erosion and sediment controls at the site will minimize or eliminate water quality impacts, other than the planned fills, to receiving streams and wetlands, and will protect water quality in downstream waters. The proposed project is located in streams and an adjacent man-made wetland associated with several unnamed tributaries that flow into Little Maumelle River and ultimately the Arkansas River, in sections 24 and 25, T. 2 N., R. 14 W., Little Rock, Pulaski County, Arkansas.

Finally, the District Engineer will review the final instrument and make a decision to approve or not approve.

  • CLEAN WATER ACT FINAL RULE

    On September 12, 2019, the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of the Army (the agencies) signed a final rule to repeal the 2015 Clean Water Rule (2015 Rule) and re-codify the regulatory text defining "waters of the United States" (WOTUS) that existed prior to the 2015 Rule. This action will, when effective, provide regulatory certainty as to the definition of “waters of the United States” in light of ongoing litigation over the 2015 Rule. This final rule will be implemented in accordance with Supreme Court decisions, agency guidance, and longstanding practice.
