The difference between maintenance dredging projects and dredging projects is huge. Maintenance dredging projects fall under the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) NationWide Permit 29 (Exemption)/NWP 29. This permit is for projects that have been dredged before or were man-made. It takes anywhere from 3-6 months and is a relatively simple permit to secure with the help of an experienced Environmental Permit Consultant (we can refer you to an excellent consultant in your area).
Dredging projects that have not been dredged before have to go through the entire process and do not qualify for an exemption. This process is lengthy, expensive and it is imperative to secure the assistance of an experienced Environmental Consultant. Time to pull out the big guns! We have contacts who have headed the regulatory agencies before they got into private practice and can navigate the process in a way only an insider can. Call us today to get Doctor Dredge help you get started-maintenance or not we have the contacts, experience and equipment to take your project from beginning to end.
