Ventura County Application on the Table

Ventura County Watershed Protection District (VCWPD) recently sent a letter to the Army Corps requesting for the Department permit for its routine operation and maintenance program.

According to the Corps, an permit application has been received for the maintenance of VCWPD facilities (Covered Facilities) pursuant to VCWPDs Routine Operation and Maintenance Program.

The proposed permit, if issued, will replace the existing regional general permit (RGP No. 092) dating back from February 13, 2013. The RGP-092 was issued to provide a more efficient regulatory process to authorize VCWPD to conduct routine flood control maintenance activities, added the Corps.

The applicant stated that routine maintenance activities that would be authorized by the proposed permit include discharge of fill material into waters of the U.S. and/or work or structures within navigable waters of the U.S. This activities are required to restore facilities to design configurations through debris removal and vegetation maintenance, minor repairs such as concrete work to address wear or damage to structural components, work required for periodic inspections, and temporary surface water diversions where needed to complete inspections and maintenance.

Deadline for sending comments on the proposed work is April 14, 2018.
