The St. Louis District Corps of Engineers proposes to reauthorize Missouri General Permit Number 34M for Sand and Gravel Excavation Activities in specific navigable waters under Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act and Section 404 of the Clean Water Act.  The Corps of Engineers (Corps) is proposing several changes in GP-34M.  Most of the proposed changes are in modifications to the special conditions of the permit.  A portion of which will make them align more closely with the State of Missouri’s Sand and Gravel Removal Guidelines, which are used by the MDNR, Land Reclamation Program (LRP) as a means to minimize adverse impacts resulting from state permitted commercial in-stream sand and gravel removal activities. Therefore, comments are solicited on the reissuance of the General Permit, reissuance with all or some of the proposed changes, or reissuance with other proposed modifications.
