NWP #11: Temporary Recreational Structures

Pursuant to Section 404(e) of the Clean Water Act, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has issued an nationwide permit (NWP) that might apply if you are undertaking activities involving temporary buoys, markers, small floating docks and similar structures for recreational use during specific events like water skiing competitions, boat races and seasonal use. Structures put in place under this NWP must be removed within 30 days of the activity being discontinued. At a reservoir under the control of the Corps, any buoy or marker must be approved individually by the reservoir manager.

Additional information about basic requirements for an NWP can be found here. Conditions on NWPs in South Carolina must also be met and can be found here. If your activity does not meet these conditions you can find information about applying for an Individual Permit here. If you have questions you should contact the Corps Charleston District Office.
