  • LRP 2020-173

    PURPOSE AND DESCRIPTION OF WORK: The project goals, management strategies, and objectives will address water quality stressors by reducing nutrient and sediment inputs through stream and floodplain reestablishment and restoration, riparian buffer restoration, and riparian wetland establishment, rehabilitation, and enhancement. Hydrologic functions will be improved by reconnecting streams and floodplains and raising the local water table. Section 404 of the Clean Water Act.

  • LRP-2024-00147

    PURPOSE AND DESCRIPTION OF WORK: The applicant proposes to construct a 40-foot long by 6-foot-wide recreational fishing pier constructed of aluminum and supported by steel pilings in the Ohio River and reinforced with 36 cubic feet of concrete fill below the ordinary high-water mark of the Ohio River on the shoreline.iver on the shoreline.

  • LRP-2002-00316

    PURPOSE AND DESCRIPTION OF WORK: The applicant proposes to perform maintenance dredging, as necessary, for a period of 10 years, to remove accumulated sediments from the dock facilities for their continued use. The dredging will occur at two areas as shown in the attached drawing; the dredged areas are proposed to be 1,100 feet long by 156 feet wide, and 1,258 feet long by 130 feet wide. These two areas will be dredged to a depth of 10.0 feet below the normal pool elevation of 723.1, an increase from 718.7 resulting from the decommissioning of the Monongahela Lock and Dam #3 in July 2024. A total of approximately 9,875 cubic yards of sediments will be dredged from the two locations. The sediments will be removed using a barge-mounted clam-shell type dredge and will be disposed of at an approved off-site landfill to preclude its re-entry into the waterway. The applicant was previously permitted for these dredging activities in 2002 and 2013.

  • Public Notice No. 24-15; LRP-2021-00250

    Expiration date: 7/8/2024

    The applicant proposes to permanently impact 3.480 acres of wetlands (1.5 acre PEM, 0.852 acre PSS, 1.099 acre PFO, 0.029 acre PUB) and 11,407 linear feet (2,329 linear feet ephemeral, 4,180 linear feet intermittent, and 4,898 linear feet perennial) of Unnamed Tributaries to Crooked Creek to construct a new coal 285.1-acre refuse disposal and support area to be known as the Crooked Creek Refuse Site to support the existing Crooked Creek Preparation Plant. Additionally, construction of two wetland and stream mitigation sites will permanently impact 303 linear feet. As compensation for these impacts, a total of 2.43 acres of wetland re-establishment, 5.29 acres of wetland enhancement, preservation of 8.77 acres of existing wetlands, and 14,372 linear feet of stream rehabilitation, reestablishment, enhancement, and preservation will be conducted across two mitigation sites (Relick North and Diet Coke Mitigation Sites) located adjacent to the project area.

  • Public Notice No. 24-05; LRP-1991-00100

    Expiration date: 7/1/2024

    The Applicant proposes the installation and maintenance of a year-round premanufactured floating boat dock at the Brownsville Wharf. The proposed dock would be 125’ x 8’ with an additional 16’ x 8’dock and a 16’ x 7’ “Clip-a-Launch”. The additional dock and ‘Clip-a-Launch” would be installed on the shore side of the 125-foot dock. A 30’ long by 5’ wide gangway would connect the dock to the existing Brownsville wharf. The project purpose is to facilitate additional mooring capacity for the existing wharf. The current wharf configuration has a very limited mooring capacity. The floating dock would be removed during winter months. Relative to navigation, the surface impact is significantly smaller than the average docked tug and barges docked 3,000 feet downstream on the west side of the river.

    RRS is a web-based platform currently in a beta version that enables users to submit pre-application meeting requests, jurisdictional determination requests, and now applications for individual and general permits. This new system aims to streamline the process, improve efficiency, and provide a more user-friendly experience for our applicants.
  • Public Notice No. CELRP-RG-24-LOP1

    In accordance with Title 33 CFR 325.2 (e)(l)(i) the Corps of Engineers, Pittsburgh, is issuing this Public Notice for the construction and maintenance of recreational boat docks along the Ohio and Monongahela Rivers in the State of West Virginia.

  • LRP-2023-00218

    The applicant proposes to construct a recreational boat dock approximately 8’ wide x 40’ long, with a gangway 32’ long, using 3 - 10” diameter pilings to anchor the structure in place within the Ohio River, for the purpose of recreational boating and fishing. Drawings of the proposed dock are attached to this notice.

  • LRP-RG-S 2023-00413

    Expiration date: 3/27/2024

    The applicant proposes to permanently fill 2,123 linear feet of intermittent unnamed tributaries to Lick Run to construct a one million square foot warehouse and associated semi-trailer parking, employee parking, and related infrastructure for the purpose of creating manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, assembly, and office space. Drawings of the proposed project are attached to this notice. The applicant intends to purchase bank credits from an approved mitigation bank to satisfy compensatory mitigation for this project.

  • LRP-2023-00416

    Expiration date: 3/7/2024

    LRG proposes to establish the Huling Run Mitigation Bank within the approved LRG Umbrella Mitigation Banking Instrument. The Bank proposes re-establish and restore the waterways and wetlands historically impacted through anthropogenic alterations including agriculture and logging. Douglas Run was historically relocated, channelized, and the hydrologic sources of the stream have been disconnected from the waterway. Re-establishment of natural stream functions proposes to connect the stream with the floodplain and recharge the groundwater table. The connection of the stream with the floodplain will provide better support for the ground water system. This connection of the stream and flood plain will re-establish wetlands within the riparian buffers of the stream. In conjunction, LRG has identified thirteen tile drains and plans to reestablish the natural drainage patterns that existed prior to their installation.

  • Notice of Availability of the Beta Streamflow Duration Assessment Methods for the Northeast and Southeast

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Baltimore, Buffalo, Charleston, Chicago, Detroit, Fort Worth, Galveston, Huntington, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Little Rock, Louisville, Memphis, Mobile, Nashville, New England, New Orleans, New York, Norfolk, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Savannah, St. Louis, Tulsa, Vicksburg, and Wilmington Districts, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Regions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 jointly announce the availability of the Beta Streamflow Duration Assessment Methods (SDAM) for the Northeast and Southeast (dated April 12, 2023). The methods are rapid assessment tools to help distinguish between ephemeral, intermittent, and perennial streamflow at the reach scale for the Northeast and Southeast SDAM Regions. The beta SDAMs may help provide technical guidance for identifying waters that may be subject to regulatory jurisdiction under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act; however, these methods do not alter or change the definition of “Waters of the U.S.”
