The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has announced closures due to the government shutdown.

According to a spokesperson from the Rock Island District USACE, beginning on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 its Regulatory office was closed.

During the closure, β€œthe Regulatory office will be unable to evaluate individual permit applications, pre-construction notifications for nationwide permit or regional general permit authorizations, or requests for jurisdictional determinations.” These inabilities will last until the current year funding is received and the offices reopen.

Anyone applying for nationwide permits that require pre-construction notifications must wait 45 days before beginning the activity, according to USACE. Also, some require a written response from USACE. Click here for more information.

The USACE said that if an emergency occurred within waters or wetlands requiring an Army Department, call 309-794-5057.
