USACE to Reissue Regional General Permit SAJ-86

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, issued a public notice Sept. 10, announcing its proposal to reissue Regional General Permit (RGP) SAJ-86 in Walton and Bay Counties.

The Corps originally issued SAJ-86 June 30, 2004 and reissued it June 23, 2009. SAJ-86 authorizes the discharge of fill or dredged material into non-tidal waters of the United States, including wetlands, for the construction of residential, commercial, recreational and institutional projects and their attendant features, including roads, utility lines and stormwater treatment facilities within a 48,000-acre area of rapid residential and commercial development in southeastern Walton County and southwestern Bay County.

SAJ-86 was developed to help protect the aquatic environment on a watershed scale by authorizing a forward-looking, flexible and predictable permitting program.

The RGP would minimize unavoidable direct impacts to highest quality aquatic resources, minimize impacts to lower quality aquatic resources and mitigate for direct, indirect and cumulative impacts within the affected watersheds.
