Requesting a Jurisdictional Determination

A property owner or interest may request a jurisdictional determination or verification of delineation from the Corps of Engineers. The final determination of whether an area is waters of the United States, including jurisdictional wetlands, and whether the activity requires a permit must be made by a Corps District Office.
