Clean Water Act
Section 404, Clean Water Act, requirements for permitting actions that would place dredge or fill material into “waters of the United States”, including wetlands, are of principle natural resources management concern on MCLB Barstow. MCLB Barstow strives to avoid impacts to “waters of the U.S.”. Avoiding impacts to “waters of the U.S.” conserves our resources and avoids the need for lengthy and time-consuming permit processing that delays mission accomplishment.
The Section 404 regulatory program is administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (ACoE), Civil Works, Regulatory section with oversight by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
