About the Regulatory Program

The Wilmington District's Regulatory Program manages and protects North Carolina's aquatic resources through fair, flexible, and balanced permit decisions. Aquatic resources that we regulate include wetlands, rivers, stream channels, lakes, and ponds.

There are two main federal laws that task the Corps of Engineers with the authority to regulate or nation's waterways: Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899. 

Contact us if these resources may be present on your property and you may be working in/near these areas.
