Public Notices

Under the Corps' Regulatory Program, a public notice is the primary method for advising all interested parties of a proposed activity for which a permit is sought. Soliciting comments and information necessary to evaluate the probable impacts on the public interest. Public notices are also published to inform the public about new or proposed regulations, policies, guidance or permit procedures.

Public Notices published by the Sacramento District under the Regulatory Program are posted on this page. Once a public notice is available on-line, an email notification is sent to individuals on the appropriate mailing list.

Comments are due by the expiration date of the public notice.  Only comments submitted by email or in hard copy format through a delivery service, such as the U.S. Postal Service, can be accepted.   Comments must be submitted to the address listed in the public notice.

  • SPK-2022-00357, Public Notice of Proposed Cache Slough Mitigation Bank

    Expiration date: 12/23/2022

    Westervelt Ecological Services, LLC has applied for Department of the Army approval to establish the Cache Slough Mitigation Bank. The approximately 350-acre bank property site is located at the confluence of two drainage basins of the Central Valley: the Sacramento and San Joaquin basins (also referred to as the “Delta”). The southernmost reach of Cache Slough conveys floodwaters to the north Delta from the confluence of the Sacramento and Feather Rivers at Fremont Weir via the Yolo Bypass. These flows then reconverge with the Sacramento River and Steamboat Slough along the southeast boundary of the Bank (Figure 2). The bank’s adjacency to these multiple rivers, sloughs, watersheds, and ecoregions within the primary zone of the Legal Delta supports the establishment and crediting of wetland and riparian habitats which may serve as mitigation for impacts across a broad geographic area.
