  • Public Notice - Guidance on the Use of Preliminary Jurisdictional Determinations

    Expiration date: 10/31/2015

    With the passing of the renewable energy tax incentive, the District has experienced a significant increase in requests for Approved Jurisdictional Determinations (AJDs) associated with the potential construction of solar energy facilities. Many of these requests are not accompanied by development plans, and are for speculative leasing for solar panel/renewable energy production. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Wilmington District (District) is issuing this public notice to clarify when it is appropriate to request Preliminary Jurisdictional Determinations (PJDs) in lieu of AJDs for the purpose of expediting the District’s review so that project proponents can move forward with development activities without incurring undue delays.
