This page contains information about the Regional General Permits for waters and wetlands of North Carolina, and the associated conditions established by the Wilmington District. Most of these permits were re-authorized in 2011 on a five year cycle. However, GP 198200031, which is used for NC DOT maintenance projects, was revised and re-authorized in 2015. The Wilmington District also supports a State Programmatic General Permit (SPGP or PGP), developed in cooperation with the state, the North Carolina Division of Coastal Management, Coastal Area Management Act (CAMA) permit program. This Regional General Permit, referred to as GP 291, was one of the very first State Programmatic General Permits authorized in the US.
