Public Notices

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.  

Public Notices published by the Los Angeles District are posted on these three pages. There are two types of Public Notices; Regulatory and Project Public Notices. 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.

SPL-2019-00016-ELJ SAR Marsh Coastal Cleanup Day

Los Angeles District
Published Sept. 2, 2019

The SAR Marsh lies at the bottom of the Santa Ana River watershed, at the outlet of the River to the Pacific Ocean. Large amounts of trash from the entire watershed wash downstream each year and accumulate in the Marsh. This trash decreases habitat value and aesthetics, and can affect water quality. The Sierra Club, a non-profit organization, has requested to enlist the aid of volunteers to remove trash from the Marsh as part of the California Coastal Commission’s annual Coastal Cleanup Day on September 21, 2019.

The proposed action would occur annually for four years (2019-2022), coinciding with the annual Coastal Cleanup Day.

This document serves to notify interested parties of the Corps’ intent to prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) and, if warranted, a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), to provide an assessment of potential impacts within the proposed action area.  The public notice will be available until Sunday, September 15, 2019, after which a Final EA and FONSI will be completed.


The Corps of Engineers is soliciting comments from the public; Federal, state, and local agencies and officials; and other interested parties in order to consider and evaluate the impacts of this proposed project.               


Comments will be accepted through Sunday, September 15, 2019.  Comments may be submitted electronically to or via phone at 213-452-3279.
