Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Jacksonville District and its associated non-Federal sponsors have constructed Federally authorized Civil Works projects across the Civil Works jurisdiction of the District, which includes peninsular Florida and Puerto Rico. Typically, these projects encompass large areas and serve various purposes such as flood risk management, navigation, environmental restoration, as well as providing fish and wild life habitat. Many are operated and maintained by the non-Federal sponsors; however, the USACE is responsible for ensuring that the integrity and primary functions of these projects are maintained at all times. Requests by non-Federal sponsors or independent entities (i.e. private, public, tribal, or other Federal entities) to make alterations to, or temporarily or permanently occupy or use, any USACE Federally authorized Civil Works project (Civil Works project) must be processed in accordance with Section 14 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (Mar. 3, 1899, 30 Stat. 1152) (codified at 33 U.S.C. § 408) (commonly referred to as "Section 408").
