JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON – Representatives for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Alaska District will host a virtual public meeting Wednesday, March 24, at 2 p.m. for anyone interested in learning about the newly issued North Slope of Alaska Regional General Permit, also known as RGP-05. The public will have an opportunity to ask questions and submit comments via the chat feature.

Under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, the USACE- Alaska District’s Regulatory Division developed the regional general permit for projects that would impact 10 acres of wetlands on the North Slope of Alaska. This type of permit can be issued for oil and gas infrastructure, community development or coastal erosion projects if it qualifies and meets the conditions.

A copy of the new RGP-05 is available for public viewing along with the slides for the virtual presentation on our website at: https://www.poa.usace.army.mil/Missions/Regulatory/Special-Public-Notices/.

Please see the attached instructions for more information and how to join the virtual public outreach workshop.
