Clean Water Act Section 404: Nationwide and Other Specialized Permits

Online

Understand and comply with requirements of the most widely used set of permits for projects in wetlands and other waters of the U.S. under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, which requires projects to first obtain a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the placement of dredged or fill materials in U.S. waters. Through the Corps' Nationwide Permit Program (NWP), general permits may be issued on a nationwide basis for activities that have minimal effects on the aquatic environment.

Study the current Nationwide Permits, including general and specific regional conditions. Gain a thorough understanding of the NWP program and the latest information from the Corps as well as other state and federal agencies. Review verification and pre- and post-construction notification processes and discuss requirements for notification contents. Further your understanding of:

  • Activities covered by NWPs
  • Region-specific conditions
  • Use of multiple NWPs
  • Special aquatic sites
  • Mitigation requirements
  • 401 certification
  • ESA/EFH compliance
  • NHPA Section 106 compliance

Section Notes

This is an online, remote learning course, which consists of content and curriculum that is taught with pre-recorded and real time lectures, in addition to a real-time Q&A session with the instructors. Pre-recorded lectures and live sessions are accessed via our Canvas learning system and Zoom. Details regarding login information will be emailed out prior to the course start date.

This course will be available on Canvas from January 19-21, 2022. A live Zoom lecture and Q&A will be held on January 21, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM (PST). In the classroom environment, this course is equivalent to a one-day course.

We allow registration through the first morning of the course. It is expected that students review the prerecorded lectures before the live sessions in order to get the most value out of these meetings. We cannot extend course access beyond 11:59 PM on Friday 1/21, so students pursuing a late enrollment acknowledge that they will have less time to complete the materials. Please contact the course representative with any questions.
