In response to the on-going drought in Texas, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is providing this summary of existing regulations that may streamline many activities within waters of the United States including maintenance of existing facilities, dredging in and around water intake structures, boat slips, and docks, and dredging and excavation in lakes and reservoirs.  Many of the existing permits have scopes of work and thresholds that may allow you accomplish your project without delay or waiting for an authorization.
