Abstract In an Office of Inspector General report issued on November 21, 2011, we addressed a congressional request on Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 404 permit applications. While reviewing files in U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Regions 3, 4, and 5, we encountered recordkeeping issues that warranted this review. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issues permits for surface coal mining under CWA Section 404 and is the official agency of record. EPA reviews permit notifications for water quality and provides the Corps with comment letters on some permit notifications. EPA also attends meetings and site visits with Corps project managers and applicants. The Federal Records Act states that 'records' include all documentary materials in connection with the transaction of public business.
