Pursuant to 33 CFR 325.2(e)(4), this Notice is being forwarded for agency review under the District Emergency Permit Procedures for the State of Florida within the Boundaries of the Jacksonville District, South Atlantic Division which were implemented October 10, 2018.  The Emergency Permit Procedure will evaluate activities under the following authorities:  Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of March 3, 1899 (33 USC 403), Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 USC 1344), and Section 103 of the Marine Protection Research and Sanctuaries Act of 1972 (33 USC 1413).

In an emergency situation the district engineer will make every reasonable effort to receive comments from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Marine Fisheries Service.  Section 402.5 (a) and (b), Emergencies, of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, states that where emergency circumstances mandate the need to consult in an expedited manner; consultation may be conducted informally through alternative procedures that the Director determines to be consistent with the requirement of sections 7(a)–(d) of the Act.  This provision applies to situations involving acts of God, disasters, casualties, national defense or security emergencies, etc.  Formal consultation would be initiated as soon as practicable after the emergency is under control. 

In an emergency situation the district engineer will make every reasonable effort to receive comments from the SHPO when the proposed undertaking can reasonably be expected to affect a potentially eligible or designated historic property and will comply with the provisions of 33 CFR 325 Appendix C to the extent that time and the emergency situation allows.
