STATE OF ILLINOIS -  PROPOSED ISSUANCE OF REGIONAL GENERAL PERMIT (GP) 26 FOR EMERGENCY RECONSTRUCTION AND REPAIR ACTIVITIES FOR FLOOD DAMGAGED AREAS. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District is proposing to re-establish GP-26  this regional general permit for emergency flood repair fills and for proposed emergency repair measures for flood damaged areas. In the past, the regional general permit was only authorized for work in waters of the United States associated with emergency reconstruction and repair activities in counties declared flood disaster areas by the State of Illinois. Regional General Permit 26 is being proposed to include emergency flood repairs in counties in the State of Illinois, regardless of whether a federal disaster has been declared. It will be in effect for a period of 5 years, at which time it will be re-evaluated.
