The ERP Program
filling, and construction in wetlands and other surface water, as
well as stormwater and surface water management systems in uplands.
The program is designed to ensure that activities in uplands,
wetlands and other surface waters do not degrade either water quality or habitat for aquatic or wetland-dependent wildlife. The five
(5) water management district offices and six (6) FDEP Districts
share responsibility for implementing the ERP program.
Several workshops have been held on behalf of
local towns and municipalities within the counties on the rules and
statutes that govern our respective programs. A primary goal of the
workshops are to educate these entities about our exemption rules and
statutes and DEP's self-certification process in effort to
reduce the amount of exemption applications the Department receives, and
to help further streamline the permitting process.
