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 notice 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
DEP will conduct a Public Rule Development Workshop concurrently via
webinar, and in Tallahassee.
Please Note: Items marked with an * are
currently being converted to an accessible format and will be made
available when complete.
