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.

Emergency Processing Procedures

Published Oct. 15, 2020

In response to specific requests from the regulated public, including situations which pose a threat to human life or property, the District Engineer must determine whether an emergency permit response is warranted. If so, the DE must recommend appropriate special permitting procedures to the Division Engineer, who will instruct the DE as to further processing of such applications. Division Engineers are authorized to approve special processing procedures in emergency situations, though even in such situations, reasonable efforts must be made by District staff to receive comments from interested Federal, State, and local agencies, and the affected public. The DE’s determination of appropriate mitigation requirements for activities authorized under emergency procedures may be deferred if necessary, as dictated by the circumstances of an emergency situation.
