Nationwide Permits (NWPs) are general permits issued on a nationwide basis to authorize minor activities with minimal evaluation time. NWPs have been established to reduce the regulatory reporting burden for specific activities that have no more than minimal impacts to the aquatic environment. Most NWPs have been suspended in Maryland and the Baltimore and Philadelphia District’s area of responsibility within Pennsylvania since the State Programmatic General Permits provide comparable Department of the Army authorization.
