The most common federal activity reviewed for consistency with the State coastal policies are U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Nationwide Permit applications. Since activities authorized under nationwide permits are considered to have minimal effects, DOS has routinely concurred with many USACE nationwide permits. Therefore, many activities which would be undertaken under nationwide permits do not require consistency review by DOS.
