Policies, Guidances & Regulations


The Commission’s Project Review Regulations, codified at 18 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Parts 801, 806, 807 and 808, contain the standards and procedures used by the Commission for the review and approval of water resources projects, and for related enforcement and oversight activities. 

Proposed rulemaking open for public comment until November 9, 2015 at http://www.srbc.net/pubinfo/publicparticipation.htm. This rulemaking proposal would amend the Commission regulations to address shortcomings in the rules for transfer of approvals, create a category for minor modifications, establish a procedure for issuing General Permits, and address other minor enhancements.
