Public Notices


Under the Corps' Regulatory Program, a public notice is the primary method for advising all interested parties of a proposed activity for which a permit is sought. Public notices are also published to inform the public about new or proposed regulations, policies, guidance or permit procedures.

We are requesting public comments on many Public Notices (PNs) concurrently; please pay careful attention to the file number and the Comments Due Date.

To submit comments in writing, send them to the attention of the Project Manager listed in the Public Notice title block. If you wish to provide comments via email, the project manager's email address is also listed in the the Public Notice title block.

All comments should reference the PN file number and be submitted by the Response Required Date on the PN.

A hard copy of our Public Notices are available upon request. To be added to the Public Notice Mailing List, please submit your name and address, indicate which county(ies) you are interested in, and indicate if you would like to receive a hard copy of the PN or just be notified by e-mail (e-mail address needed). You can send your request by e-mail or regular mail:

If you are on our mailing list and your contact information changes, please notify our Contact Representative and provide your new and old addresses. Hard copies or e-mails returned due to a non-functioning address will be deleted from our electronic mailing list system.

The Public Notices are listed in chronological order, with the most recent at the top. There is a link to the right of the current list to access PNs issued in prior years.

SPK 2015 00819, Decision of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District (Corps) to accept funds contributed by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company

Posted: 8/16/2017

Expiration date:

SUBJECT: The purpose of this Public Notice is to inform the general public that the District Commander of the Sacramento District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (“Corps”) has decided to accept funds contributed by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, subject to the limitations specified below.

A series of procedural safeguards has been adopted to ensure that use of the funds will not impact impartial decision-making. These include:

a. All final permit decisions where these funds are used must be reviewed at least by one level above the decision maker, unless the decision maker is the District Commander. For example, if the decision maker is the California Delta Section Chief, then the reviewer would be the Regulatory Division Chief.

b. All final permit decisions where these funds are used will be made available on Regulatory HQ ORM2 Public Portal page.

c. The Corps will not eliminate any procedures or decisions that would otherwise be required for that type of project and permit application under consideration.

d. The Corps will comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

e. Funds will only be expended to provide priority review of the participating non-federal entity’s permit applications and processes.

Information concerning WRDA, including documents referenced in this notice, may be found on our Headquarters website. If you have any questions or need additional information please contact Michael Nepstad, 1325 J Street, Sacramento, California 95814-2922. Alternatively, comments can be sent electronically to Michael.g.nepstad@usace.army.mil.
