Clean Water Act: Section 404(q) Dispute Resolution Process

The Clean Water Act (Section 404(a)) authorizes the Secretary of the Army, acting through the Chief of Engineers, to issue permits for discharges of dredge or fill material at specified sites in waters of the United States. In making a permit decision, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) solicits and considers the views of the public as well as State and Federal resource
agencies. At times, EPA may oppose the Corps’ intent to issue a
Section 404 permit for a particular project. This fact sheet describes the process to resolve these differences.
