US Army Corps Temporarily Suspends Issuing Jurisdictional Determinations

November 2006 In The Zone

As seen in the In The Zone newsletter.

We have been notified by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection that the US Army Corps of Engineers ("Corps") has temporarily discontinued the processing of requests for jurisdictional determinations ("JDs") until guidance is provided by Corps management in Washington. The discontinuation, which is expected to last another 6 months, is the result of a US Supreme Court decision on intrastate wetlands and the remanding of that case to Michigan for further action.
