Delegations are activities regulated by the FDEP that have been delegated to local government agencies to further streamline the permitting process.

Section 373.441 of the Florida Statutes provides authority for the FDEP and the water management districts to delegate all or a portion of the Environmental Resource Permit (ERP) Program to local governments.  Within the Southeast District (SED), Broward County and Miami-Dade County have approved Delegation Agreements in which they can process permits for curtain activities of the Environmental Resource Program.  Please check with the county's environmental resource protection program to determine if your project requires a permit from DEP.  



U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)

The Department and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers also have further streamlined processing of state and federal regulatory permits under a State Programmatic General Permit (SPGP). The SPGP avoids duplication of permitting between the Corps and FDEP for minor works located in waters of the U.S., including navigable waters. The SPGP allows FDEP to approve the applicable federal permit during the review of an environmental resource permit for certain minor activities including shoreline stabilization, boat ramps, docks and piers, and maintenance dredging, as well as for activities that qualify for regulatory exemptions and general permits, subject to conditions. In addition, FDEP has granted state water quality certification and Coastal Zone Consistency Concurrence, subject to regional conditions applicable to each Nationwide Permit (NWP), for most of the Corps' NWPs.
