Abstract : The purpose of this report is to update and expand the policy of the St. Paul District of the Corps of Engineers dated October 7, 1981. The previous policy addressed only the applicability of Section 404(f) exemptions to cranberry projects. It is clear that a need exists to address additional issues related to review of permit applications, pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, for cranberry operations. Inconsistencies in review of permit applications have resulted because of the lack of guidelines addressing all aspects of cranberry projects. Adoption of the guidelines described in this analysis would promote consistent approach in evaluating all future applications for cranberry projects.
