Posted on October 19, 2022

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District, has incorporated preventative measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic at its Regulatory Program offices to minimize potential exposure of Corps personnel, permit applicants and the general public, including limiting some day-to-day operations and postponing Corps-hosted events, office meetings and public engagements.

Regulatory staff continue to process/evaluate permit applications and materials, conduct phone conferences, host or participate in virtual meetings and respond to inquiries by email and telephone. Field visits have been limited to a case-by-case basis.

Applicants are encouraged to submit applications, requests for Jurisdictional Determinations, pre-application requests, and other requests electronically to In an effort to facilitate the review of applications and other requests without site visits, applicants are encouraged to submit materials that allow staff to better understand site conditions and project proposals, such as extensive ground photographs, site videos, project plans overlaid on aerial photography, drone footage of the site, and/or other related remote-sensing information.

Under the joint permit processing procedures in Maryland and Pennsylvania, hard copies of applications are typically submitted to the representative state/commonwealth. The state/commonwealth reviews the applications and determines if a Corps review is required. If applicants are made aware of the need for a Corps review of the application, it is recommended they submit the application package to the Corps through an email to, in order to reduce processing time frames.
