Final Nationwide Permit Regional Conditions for Navajo Nation Lands in Utah

Published April 11, 2018

On January 6, 2017, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) published the notice in the Federal Register announcing the reissuance of all 50 existing nationwide permits (NWPs), general conditions, and definitions with some modifications. The Corps also issued two new NWPs, one new general condition, and five new definitions. The 2017 NWPs went into effect on March 19, 2017, and will expire on March 18, 2022.  On March 22, 2017, the Sacramento District has finalized Regional Conditions for the 2017 Nationwide Permits (NWPs) for the District boundaries of California, Nevada, and Utah. 

In June 2013 the Corps’ Albuquerque District was designated the lead district within the Corps South Pacific Division region for coordination of Corps regulatory program issues within the boundary of the Navajo Nation.  The goal of this designation is to bring consistency to the regulatory program within the Navajo Nation and to simplify and increase the efficiency of program implementation.  Lead District designation only applies to management of regulatory consistency and each district is responsible for regulatory program execution within its area of responsibility.  One of the primary activities undertaken is the ongoing consolidation of regional conditions of the three Corps districts whose area of responsibility includes Navajo Nation lands (Albuquerque District within New Mexico, Sacramento District within Utah, and Los Angeles District within Arizona).  The consolidation will assist Navajo Nation agencies that must comply with the regulatory program and the Nation’s water quality program which provides water quality certification for permitted activities.  These consolidated regional conditions were adopted within Albuquerque District on March 22, 2017.  Following approval by the South Pacific Division, the Sacramento District has finalized and adopted the Regional Conditions within Navajo Nation lands in Utah, which are consistent with those adopted by the Albuquerque District.  The Final Sacramento District Nationwide Permit (NWP) Regional Conditions for Navajo Nation Lands is attached to this public notice.

When combined with the terms and conditions of the Nationwide Permits, the final Regional Conditions for Navajo Nation Lands were designed to ensure no more than minor impacts occur to waters of the U.S.  The final Regional Conditions for Navajo Nation lands take effect on March 29, 2018.
