Some Portland District employees were at the Native American Youth and Family Center recently where they taught kids to use engineering and math skills to build BMX bikes and understand why tire pressure makes a difference in racing performance.

PORTLAND, Ore. – We're expanding our efforts to transition to paperless permitting. The Portland District Regulatory office is accepting electronic permit applications for several Oregon counties and some Washington ports.
The list of counties and ports where electronic applications are available is at http://www.nwp.usace.army.mil/Missions/Regulatory/Projects.aspx.
The Corps will continue to accept hard copies of applications from applicants who do not have the ability to submit an electronic version.
Joint permit applications, wetland delineations, permit modification requests, monitoring reports, jurisdictional determination requests, and other requests should be emailed to PortlandPermits@usace.army.mil.
Applicants will receive an electronic notification with the project number and contact information for the project manager assigned to the review. Correspondence, including the final permits, will be provided electronically unless permittees request a hard copy of these documents.
The Corps evaluates permit applications for construction activities that occur in the Nation’s waters, including wetlands. The Portland District administers one of the largest regulatory permitting programs within the Corps of Engineers, providing for the protection of waters of the United States, including federally delineated wetlands and navigable waters. Portland District has regulatory jurisdiction for the state of Oregon.
