The District Engineer, Rock Island District, Corps of Engineers, is proposing to re-establish this regional general permit for emergency flood repair fills and for proposed emergency repair measures for flood damaged areas. In the past, the regional general permit was only authorized for work in waters of the United States associated with emergency reconstruction and repair activities in counties declared flood disaster areas by the State of Illinois. Regional General Permit 26 is being proposed to include emergency flood repairs in counties in the State of Illinois, regardless of whether a federal disaster has been declared. It will be in effect for a period of 5 years, at which time it will be re-evaluated. There were no individual projects authorized under Regional General Permit 26 between the period May 15, 2017, and May 15, 2022, in Rock Island District. There was one (1) individual project authorized under Regional General Permit 26 between the period May 15, 2017, and May 15, 2022, in St. Louis District. Chicago, Memphis, and Louisville Districts did not participate in Regional General Permit 26 in the previous 5 years but Chicago and Memphis Districts are participating in this re-establishment of RGP 26.
