    • PASPGP-4 Monitoring Report

      In accordance with the PASPGP-4, the Corps, with recommendations from the resource agencies evaluated the PASPGP-4, including its terms and conditions, to determine if:

      a.    The PASPGP-4 has met its intended goal of reducing duplication;
      b.    Authorizations/verifications comply with applicable laws and regulations;
      c.    Only projects with minimal adverse environmental effects were verified; and
      d.    If reissuance, modification, suspension, or revocation of the PASPGP is appropriate

      Based on the information evaluated for the time period July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2013, the Corps has determined that the work authorized by the PASPGP-4 is in compliance with the Clean water Act (CWA) 404(b)(1) Guidelines and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act (ESA), and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).  Therefore, continuation of the PASPGP-4 and reissuance of a SPGP in Pennsylvania is justified.  Please click here to view the PASPGP-4 Monitoring Report dated July 25, 2014.


Philadelphia District Regulatory Branch

The Philadelphia District was established in 1866 to manage the water resources of the Delaware River Basin, and of the Atlantic Coast from New Jersey’s Manasquan Inlet to the southern boundary of Delaware. We serve more than nine million people across portions of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Regulatory Program began in 1890 with the responsibility of protecting and maintaining the nations navigable waterways. As a result of changing public needs and evolving policy via new laws and court decisions, protection has been extended to all waters of the United States, including many wetlands.
