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.

Section 408 permit application from Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, through Los Angeles County Flood Control District, to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to drill four geotechnical borings each in Los Angeles and San Gabriel River Channels, and two geotechnical borings in Rio Hondo Channel.  The boreholes will measure less than 1-foot in diameter and will be drilled to a maximum depth of 150 feet below the ground surface. The total volume of excavated material for all of the boreholes will not exceed 50 cubic yards of soil.  The holes would be backfilled with a cement/sand slurry, and then covered with grout/or ready-mix concrete surface plugs to mimic the existing concrete-lined channels, restoring the areas to pre-activity contours and conditions.  The purpose of the project is to design the proposed West Santa Ana Branch Transportation Corridor, a new light rail transit line connecting downtown Los Angeles to southeast Los Angeles County.
