    Expiration date: 2/20/2017

    Pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S. Code 1344), notice is hereby given that Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation (MCHF), P.O. Box 366, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102-0366, proposes to establish Mitigation Plan No. SSTF1010-Christian County, entitled the Kipfer Project. The mitigation plan would be established under MCHF’s Stream Stewardship Trust Fund (SSTF) In-lieu Fee Instrument. A draft copy of the mitigation plan has been reviewed by the Interagency Review Team (IRT), which is made up of pertinent state and Federal resource agencies. The project site is on Bull Creek, in sections 5 and 8, T. 25 N., R. 20 W., Christian County, Missouri. The purposes of the project are to reduce bank erosion, improve channel stability, and protect the forested riparian corridor along Bull Creek. The mitigation project would directly address the resource threats for the Bull Creek Priority Watershed and the specific areas of concern for the White River Ecological Drainage Unit (EDU), such as minimizing sources of eroding soils, restoring and maintaining well-vegetated riparian areas, and restoring in-stream habitats to support aquatic life.

  • 2017 NWP

    On January 6, 2017, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) published the notice in the Federal Register announcing the reissuance of all 50 existing nationwide permits (NWPs), general conditions, and definitions with some modifications. The Corps also issued two new NWPs, one new general condition, and five new definitions. The 2017 NWPs will go into effect on March 19, 2017, and will expire on March 18, 2022. With the publication of this Federal Register notice, Corps districts will begin finalizing their regional conditions for the new and reissued NWPs. Regional conditions will provide additional protection for the aquatic environment, and will help ensure that the NWPs authorize only those activities with no more than minimal adverse environmental effects. Regional conditions will help ensure protection of high value waters within the Little Rock District. The publication of this Federal Register notice also begins the 60-day period for states, Tribes, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to complete their water quality certification (WQC) processes for the NWPs. The 60-day period for WQC will end on March 6, 2017. This Federal Register notice also begins the 90-day period for coastal states to complete their Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) consistency determination processes. The 90-day period for CZMA consistency determinations will end on April 5, 2017.
