The new NWPs will take effect March 19, 2017, and replace the existing permits, which expire on March 18, 2017.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is awarding more than $17 million to 20 projects in 10 coastal states to protect, restore or enhance more than 13,000 acres of coastal wetlands and adjacent upland habitats.
