Shutdown forces closure of Corps' regulatory offices

HUNTINGTON -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers's Huntington District closed its regulatory offices Tuesday because of an absence of available federal funding from the government shutdown.

That means regulatory offices will not evaluate individual permit applications, pre-construction notifications for nationwide permit or regional general permit authorizations or requests for jurisdictional determinations until after funding is received and the offices reopen, according to a prepared release.
