NEW FEDERAL REGULATIONS FOR DREDGED AND FILL MATERIALS

In September 1975, EPA issued the Interim Final Guidelines to be applied by the Corps in evaluating a proposed discharge of dredged or fill material in navigable waters. Both the Corps Regulations and EPA Guidelines allowed 90 days for additional public comment. The comment period has closed and both agencies are analyzing the more than 2000 comments received. The final regulations, possibly incorporating some changes based on the comments, are expected to be issued late this spring. While this feature summarizes the key points of the Regulations and Guidelines, prospective permitters are cautioned to consult the complete text in the Federal Register, because of the large number of modifying conditions and provisos and the complicated language contained in these documents.
