CONCORD, Mass. – On Sept. 25, 2017, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, Maine Project Office is relocating to new office space located at 442 Civic Center Drive, Suite 350, in Augusta, Maine. The project office was previously located in Manchester.
The Maine Project Office primary mission is to administer the Corps of Engineers regulatory or permit program in the state of Maine. The Project Office routinely also acts as an initial point of contact for a variety of other Corps missions in Maine. The phone number remains unchanged (telephone: 207-623-8367).
The Maine Project Office handles applications for a federal permit filed with the Corps of Engineers in Maine in compliance with Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, which provides for federal regulation of any work in, or affecting navigable waters of the U.S.; Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, which regulates the discharge or fill of material in U.S. waters, including wetlands; and Section 103 of the Marine Protection, Research and Sanctuaries Act, which regulates the transportation of dredged material for the purpose of disposal in the ocean.
The New England District Regulatory Division has maintained a Project Office in Maine since 1984, but relocated to the new space at the direction of its higher headquarters North Atlantic Division.
The new location keeps the New England District Maine Regulatory team in close proximity to many of the lead state and federal resource agencies that it must coordinate with in Augusta.
The office is fully operational and open for business, but through Sept. 29 may experience some connectivity issues. The Corps staff will respond to inquiries made by phone or email as soon as possible.
The move was supported by a hard working district team from Real Estate, Logistics, Information Technology, Contracting and Regulatory.
