Comments regarding Utah Lake Restoration Project

Thank you for visiting the Corps' website to learn more about the permitting process for the proposed Utah Lake Restoration Project.  The information we have received for this proposal to date is available below.  

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), through the Regulatory Program, administers and enforces Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (RHA) and Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA). Under RHA Section 10, a permit is required for work or structures in, over or under navigable waters of the United States. Under CWA Section 404, a permit is required for the discharge of dredged or fill material into waters of the United States. Many waterbodies and wetlands in the nation are waters of the United States and are subject to the Corps' regulatory authority. Utah Lake is subject to the Corps’ regulatory authority under CWA Section 404.  

The Corps’ Regulatory Program is committed to protecting the Nation's aquatic resources and navigation capacity, while allowing reasonable development through fair and balanced permit decisions. 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. Once a public notice is available on-line, an email notification is sent to individuals on the appropriate mailing list. 

If you would like to be added to our public notice mailing list, please send an email to with your contact information (Organization, your name, email, mailing address and phone number) and a request to be added to the  “Utah County, Utah” public notice 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.
