Comments on the Proposed Reissuance of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Nationwide Permits: Endnotes
1. This is the second time EWG has received data from the Corps' RAMS database. EWG obtained a significantly smaller data set in November, 1994, also as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request. The previous database was used by EWG for published analyses of Section 404 permitting in California, Nebraska and a number of other states.
2. See the "Preliminary Decision Documents" for the proposed nationwide permits, which constitute the environmental assessments, 401(b)(1) compliance reviews, and statements of findings for the proposed permits. Copies of these documents are available at the World Wide Web site of the Sacramento District of the Army Corps of Engineers: http://wetland.usace.mil.
