Renewal of a Regional General Permit for the construction, operation, and maintenance of recreational facilities in navigable waters of the United States within the States of Arkansas and Missouri.
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
Background. On March 21, 2012, the Little Rock District Corps of Engineers, as the lead district in the state of Arkansas, issued a public notice announcing reissuance of this regional general permit for recreational facilities in navigable waters within the states of Arkansas and Missouri. This regional general permit may be used in the Little Rock, Vicksburg, and Memphis Districts. The authority for permit issuance is found in Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (33 U.S. Code 403) and Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S. Code 1344). Corps districts are authorized to develop regional general permits in accordance with Title 33, Code of Federal Regulations Parts 325.2(e)(2) and 325.5(c)(1).
Determination to Renew. After reviewing the previous actions authorized under this regional general permit and comments received on the public notice, it is our assessment that the work authorized will not have significant adverse environmental impacts and that the public interest will be served by the renewal of this regional general permit.
The policies of this regional general permit will be subject to reconsideration at any time, but will be reviewed at least every five (5) years. This regional general permit is therefore issued for a period of 5 years until April 17, 2018 unless it is revoked.
Notification/Verification Requirement. Anyone wanting to do work under the regional general permit would have to notify the appropriate Corps District and receive verification that the proposed work would meet the limits of the regional general permit. The notification/verification details are outlined in the Procedures for Verifying Authorization attached to the regional general permit.
Consideration of New/Additional Information. If additional information, developed during the life of the permit, indicates factors contrary to the public interest, this regional general permit may be suspended, modified, or revoked.
Interested parties are requested to provide comments on this regional general permit at any time during the life of the permit. Comments should be addressed to Chief, Regulatory Division, US Army Corps of Engineers, PO Box 867, Little Rock, Arkansas 72203-0867.

Please disregard notices that are not of interest to you. If you have no need for any of these notices, please advise us so that your name can be removed from the mailing list.
