SWERP Rule Development - Chapter 62-330, Phase II, Minor Changes


The Department, in coordination with the water management districts, is proposing minor corrections and clarifications to the SWERP rules, including the Applicant’s Handbook Volumes, that were adopted on October 1, 2013. This will include such things as adding some new exemptions, reducing some submittal requirements, improving the linkage with federal permitting programs, amending some procedures and general permits, and revising application and other forms.

The overall goal of this rule development is to eliminate some errors and conflicts, improve consistency, reduce the number of requests for additional information from applicants during the permitting process, and accomplish some additional permit streamlining.

Notices, Workshops and Hearings

DEP conducted Public Rule Development Workshops concurrently via webinar, and in Tallahassee.
