September 2019 - Updates to the Section 408 Program at the USACE Saint Paul District

The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Section 408 policy sets forth the process and criteria USACE uses to review requests to alter USACE Civil Works projects. The purpose of the Section 408 review is to ensure that the benefits of a USACE project are not undermined by an alteration and to ensure the alteration is not injurious to the public interest. In the fall of 2018, USACE issued new guidance regarding the Section 408 program which should improve the review process. Michelle’s presentation addressed the Section 408 program and updates to the review process. Her slides are available here:
