Government Shutdown Forced Army Corps of Engineers to Close Regulatory Offices

October 15, 2013 Updated Oct 15, 2013 at 5:30 PM EDT

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo District announced today it will close its Regulatory offices due to the absence of available federal funding during the government shutdown.

Regulatory offices will be unable to evaluate individual permit applications, pre-construction notifications for nationwide permit or regional general permit authorizations, or requests for jurisdictional determinations until after current year funding is received and the offices reopen.
