The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District, (District), has revised the Minimum Standards for the Acceptance of Aquatic Resources Delineation Reports (formerly titled Minimum Standards for Acceptance of Preliminary Wetland Delineations, dated November 30, 2001). The purpose for these revisions is to update the District’s minimum standards to reflect regulatory standards, guidance and protocol. This notice is to inform interested parties of the revisions, which will go into effect on January 1, 2016.

LOCATION: All areas within the Sacramento District’s Regulatory Division boundaries.

DESCRIPTION: The District has established minimum standards for delineation reports to insure consistency and accuracy in the delineation of aquatic resources. The standards are based on years of experience conducting and verifying delineations, as well as the best practices of environmental consultants. Delineations submitted for verification must follow the standards, unless determined to not be practical on a case-by-case basis. Situations where adherence to the standards may not be practical include activities with small permanent or temporary impacts to aquatic resources (under 0.10 acre), applicants with limited financial resources, and emergencies.
