Application Submittal Directions

New Submittals - We have created three email boxes where all new submittals, where you are not already working with a Project Manager, should be emailed to as follows: for Ohio application submittals only for New York application submittals only for Alleged Violations, Compliance, or Non-compliance matters


  1. Please consider file size limits when submitting information electronically.  Files larger than 5MB may need to be submitted in multiple files that are emailed separately, or through use of DoD Safe. For large files (from 25 MB up to 8GB) you should use DoD SAFE allows users the capability to securely send and receive large files, including files that are too large to be transmitted via email. If using DoD SAFE you must send files to a Regulatory staff member, and you may request access using one of the email addresses above.
  2. Submittals received after normal business hours, or on weekends or holidays will be noted as received the next business day.

Pending Actions - The following link will provide the status of Pending Permit Applications or finalized Jurisdictional Determinations: Follow the directions below when submitting files associated with:

  • Submittals Assigned to, and Under Evaluation by a Regulatory Project Manager:
    • Submit Electronic correspondence directly to the assigned Project Manager.  If assigned it will be noted on the Check Permit Status page.
    • Email subject line should be labeled with the Corps-assigned project number (ORM Number – shown on the Check Permit Status page) and/or project name and location. 
  • Unassigned pending actions:
    • Please contact our District office using the contact information above to request a status update.
    • Please include the Corps-assigned project number if noted on the Check Permit Status page when requesting a status update. 

PANDEMIC NOTE - If electronic submission is not possible, hard copy submissions thru postal mail will continue to be accepted.  Hard copy should only be provided when electronic submissions are not possible.  There will be intermittent access to postal mail and therefore this will further delay receipt, internal distribution and handling of your submittal.  Further, precautionary internal mail handling procedures may be instituted to protect our workforce, which may result in longer than normal times to receive hard copy submissions.
