What You Need to Know About Section 404 Permits

OnDemand Webinar (92 minutes)

Are you prepared for additional requirements that can be triggered during the Section 404 Permit process?The regulation of wetlands and waterbodies through Section 404 of the Clean Water Act has been well documented. However, what is often unaccounted for are the additional requirements that can be triggered during the Section 404 Permitting process. These oftentimes unforeseen requirements can add costs and/or even delay a project significantly. Therefore, while it is important to understand the basis of the Section 404 regulatory review process, it is equally as important to learn about and understand the ancillary reviews and requirements that can ultimately lead to a project's success or failure. This topic is intended to better prepare you for the basic Section 404 regulatory review process administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and to guide you through some potential key issues that can occur during that process. At the completion of this content, you will be able to better predict major obstacles and potentially costly issues associated with Section 404 of the Clean Water Act.
