Regional General Permits Available in Alaska

Photo by Rebecca Manbeck

A Regional General Permit (RGP) is issued for a specific geographic area by an individual USACE, Regulatory Division District. Below is a list of the RGPs available in Alaska. Reference the RGP Summary table for a quick reference of each RGP. Select a specific General Permit Name link in the table below to view the specific terms and conditions of that RGP. Each RGP has specific terms and conditions, all of which must be met for project-specific actions to be verified. If a project does not comply with all of the terms and conditions, authorization may be granted by another type of Department of the Army (DA) permit, however, the process will likely take longer. Therefore, to expedite application review, modifying projects to meet all terms and conditions of the applicable RGP is recommended. The goal of the USACE, Regulatory Division is to authorize RGP requests within 45 to 60 days after receipt of a complete application. This time frame may vary depending on the complexity of the project.
