The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) recognizes the importance of implementing a watershed approach within the regulatory program, and efforts are underway nationwide to implement watershed management strategies within the permitting program. Within the USACE, Savannah District, we have targeted our watershed approach to include building stakeholder relationships, data acquisition/analysis, cumulative impact assessments and compensatory mitigation requirements. Our efforts are on-going and continue to evolve as new information and guidance from our Headquarters becomes available. Regulating impacts to waters of the United States (US) and ensuring no net loss of aquatic habitats are fundamental components to our watershed approach. Likewise, communication with stakeholders will continue to be a priority of the Savannah District, Regulatory Division.
