***Public Notice Reissued***

This public notice revision was unfortunately affected by the error, and therefore is now being posted to our public website to allow for a 15-day public comment period. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your interest in the Corps of Engineers Regulatory Division public notices and encourage your comments on proposed projects. Interested parties are hereby notified that a Department of the Army permit application has been received for work in waters of the United States as described below and shown in the previous notice.
