The Division of Land Use Regulation
US Army Corp of Engineers

The Army established the Corps of Engineers as a separate, permanent branch in 1802. The Army Corps of Engineers regulatory program evaluates permit applications for essentially all construction activities that occur in the Nation's waters, including wetlands.

The State of New Jersey is divided between two Army Corps Districts: the Philadelphia District (Map) and the New York District (Map).

Applicants obtaining State permits in coastal waterways or wetlands, waterfront development areas, other waterways within 1000 feet of ordinary high water or mean high tide, along the Delaware River, adjacent to Greenwood Lake, and in the Hackensack Meadowlands will also need to obtain appropriate permits from the Army Corps of Engineers. 

Please visit the Philadelphia District and the New York District websites on their wetland regulatory programs for more information.
