Demystifying Wetland and In-Water Permitting in Washington State
How Does This Course Work?
Through this course, learn how to identify which environmental laws apply to which wetland and water, including the statutory foundations and agencies of jurisdiction. During eight hours of classroom time we will review the applicable federal, state and local regulations and what constitutes a “complete application” for the respective agencies. The focus of this course will be on putting together a permitting application that minimizes delay and ensures a timely review. We will discuss common errors in permit applications and how to address challenging situations encountered in the field through case studies. We will also focus on the submittal requirements for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Seattle District Nationwide Permit Program, the state wetland rating forms and the JARPA form. Learn how to distinguish the different regulatory ordinary high water marks and make an initial jurisdictional determination, including associated wetlands under the Shoreline Management Act.
