The mission of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Regulatory program is to protect the nation's aquatic resources, while allowing reasonable development through fair, flexible and balanced permit decisions.
During the permit process, the Corps considers the views of other federal, state and local agencies, Native American tribes, interest groups, and the general public. The results of this careful public interest review are fair and equitable decisions that allow reasonable use of private property, infrastructure development, and growth of the economy, while offsetting the authorized impacts to the waters of the United States. The Corps strives to make its permit decisions in a timely manner.
The District Engineer will publish on a monthly basis a list of permits issued or denied during the previous month, in accordance with 33 CFR 325.2(a)(8). The Portland District provides a listing of each project reference number, applicant's name, permit action type, permit action closure method, work type, and location for the previous month.
These permit decisions are divided into three categories:
2023 general permit decisions
2024 general permit decisions
Portland District's permit decision listings are updated after the 15th of each month for decisions of the previous month.
