Abstract or Summary
  • My experiences with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (referred to as the Corps) has been an integral part of my formal education. My work with the Corps fulfills my internship requirement for my Masters Degree in Marine Resource Management. The work here has allowed me to use my academic knowledge and has exposed me to the inner workings of a political regulatory agency. The Corps has the responsibility to regulate, through a permit system, activities such as dredging, filling, and construction in most of the water systems of the United States as established under legislated authority. The authority for this is given in the River and Harbor Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Marine, Research, and Sanctuary Act. Under this authority, the Corps evaluates project proposals using specific public interest criteria and procedures developed in the regulations written to implement the laws. The Regulations are the primary basis for the Corps' regulatory policy. However, as I have observed working with many permit applications, the Corps' regulatory policy is more complex than that implied by the regulations. As a result the Corps makes decisions which are not necessarily in the best public interest, but are consistent with publicly accepted norms.
