NOTICE OF COMMENT PERIOD EXTENSION:  On February 19, 2020, the United States Army Corps of Engineers published a public notice titled “LRH – OH SWVM-2020 THE OHIO STREAM AND WETLAND VALUATION METRIC FOR APPLICATION WITHIN THE STATE OF OHIO.” The purpose of the public notice was to solicit comments from the interested parties in order to consider and evaluate the use of the Ohio Stream and Wetland Valuation Metric (SWVM).  Any comments received will be considered by the Corps to determine whether to modify, adopt, or terminate the use of the Ohio SWVM. Comments, both favorable and unfavorable, will be accepted, made a part of the record, and receive full consideration in subsequent actions on these procedures. 

The closing date of the comment period was previously extended until April 24, 2020 to allow additional time for the preparation and submittal of comments regarding the OH SWVM.  In consideration of the current COVID-19 Global Pandemic and resultant alternate work statuses, the close of the comment period for the OH SWVM is now being extended until May 24, 2020.

All aspects, as described in the original public notice, remain unchanged and may be referenced at:
