The Department of State Lands (DSL) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District (Corps), released a revised Joint Permit Application (JPA) form for immediate use for removal-fill applications. DSL and the Corps both administer wetland and waterway regulatory programs in Oregon, and the joint form provides efficiencies for both applicants and the agencies.
The new JPA is available on the removal-fill permit forms page.
The revised JPA generally has the same information requirements as the prior version, but was modified to make it easier for applicants to apply for permits while providing the information required for both regulatory programs.
Instructions are attached as the final three pages of the form. DSL also has modified the Removal-Fill Guide to include more extensive instructions.
Questions about how to complete the new form should be directed to the appropriate DSL resource coordinator or project manager at the Corps. The agencies will continue to accept applications that have been prepared using the prior version.
