VICKSBURG — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will close the Vicksburg District Regulatory offices due to the absence of available federal funding as the federal shutdown continues.
Regulatory offices will be unable to evaluate individual permit applications, pre-construction notifications (PCNs) for nationwide permit (NWP) or regional general permit authorizations or requests for jurisdictional determinations until after current year funding is received and the offices reopen.
During this time, should an emergency activity need to be conducted in waters or wetlands that requires a Department of the Army authorization under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and/or Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899, call (601) 634-5821.
