Nationwide Permits (NWP) - A nationwide permit is a form of general permit that authorizes a category of activities throughout the nation. These permits are valid only if the conditions applicable to the permits are met. If the conditions cannot be met, then a regional or individual permit will be required. Examples of activities include, but are not limited to: repair, utility lines, bank stabilization, road crossings, residential & commercial development, boat ramps, etc.
The 2012 NWP Program became effective on March 19, 2012 and will expire on March 18, 2017.
