Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: If a dam operator modifies or deviates from normal operation of the dam in such a manner that bottom sediment accumulated behind the dam could be removed and transported downstream through the dam, either deliberately or accidentally, that activity may require a DA permit pursuant to Section 404 and/ or Section 10. The purpose of this document is to provide guidance to Corps Districts Engineers regarding which releases of sediments from or through dams require Department of Army (DA) permits.
