The Corps of Engineers has an administrative appeal process whereby applicants and landowners may appeal denied permits, declined proffered permits, or approved jurisdictional determinations… decisions that are made at the district level. The requests for an appeal of such decisions are appealed to the Corps Division offices. Requests for appeal must be received by the Division office within 60 days of the date of the appealable decision. An appeal conference or meeting may be conducted during the appeal process. A decision on the merits of the appeal based on the administrative record is normally made in 90 days. The Division Engineer will either uphold the District’s decision, or remand the decision to the District with instructions that the District must follow as they reconsider and make a new decision. Finally, the appeal process enables applicants the opportunity to appeal a district’s decision while potentially avoiding the cost/delay of court litigation.
