Jurisdictional Determinations

Approved Jurisdictional Determinations (appealable actions) are posted below weekly. The purpose of the Jurisdictional Determination Form is to further increase consistent, predictable, and open jurisdictional determination reporting practices and comply with recommendations presented in the February 2004 Government Accounting Office Report.

Jurisdictional Determination means a written USACE determination that a wetland and/or waterbody is subject to regulatory jurisdiction under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1344) or a written determination that a waterbody is subject to regulatory jurisdiction under Section 9 or 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (33 U.S.C. 401 et seq.). The basis of the jurisdictional determination is also included on the forms. Basis of jurisdictional determination is a summary of the indicators that support the Corps approved jurisdictional determination.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but the forms used for jurisdictional determinations may not have optical character recognition, or OCR.  Because of this limitation, these forms are neither searchable nor text-to-speech capable.
