The Environment Committee invites the GCA members to attend the following presentation:
US Army Corps of Engineers, Honolulu District Regulatory Branch Presentation
The mission of the Corps’ regulatory program is to protect the Nation's waters for current and future generations while allowing for reasonable economic development. Regulatory efforts protect a wide variety of aquatic resources, including wetlands, rivers, streams, tidal waters, coral reefs, shellfish beds, and the oceans. Our permit process is designed to minimize environmental impacts of construction and dredging activities in U.S. waters and to ensure that such efforts are thoughtful and coordinated. The Regulatory Program is committed to protecting the Nation's aquatic resources and navigation capacity while allowing reasonable development through fair and balanced decisions. The Corps evaluates permit applications for essentially all construction activities that occur in the Nation's waters, including wetlands. The Honolulu District evaluates about 300 permit applications each year under its regulatory program.
This event is an opportunity for GCA members, State and City Government agencies and consultants to learn about USACE Honolulu District’s Regulatory program, permits, jurisdictions, implementation, and enforcements.
