404 & 401

404 & 401

Postby cloudyy » Mon Nov 05, 2018 3:37 pm

True or False (or otherwise??):

The 404 Permit and 401 certification both pertaining to the discharge of pollutants/materials into US waters. The difference is that the former is issued by a FEDERAL agency (USACE) and the latter is issued by a REGIONAL agency (RWQCB, under the SWRCB)

Is my understanding correct (or at least correct enough at the conceptual level for the test)?

Yeah I think you got it.

A RWQCB 401 Certification is triggered whenever a USACE 404 Permit is required, or whenever an activity could cause a discharge of dredged or fill material into waters of the U.S. or wetlands.
