Environmental Resource Permitting (ERP) and Sovereign Submerged Lands (SSL) Rules

State Programmatic General Permit

Note: The Corps has recently disallowed use of the SPGP for placement of rip rap within Johnson Seagrass Critical Habitat and Smalltooth Sawfish Critical Habitat within Charlotte, Lee, & Collier Counties (Monroe County is already excluded from the availability to use the SPGP). Maps of these Critical Habitat areas are available in the table below.

On September 24, 1997, the Jacksonville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issued an expanded State Programmatic General Permit (SPGP III). The purpose of the SPGP III was to avoid duplication of permitting between the Corps and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for minor work located in waters of the United States, including navigable waters. Thus, the need for separate approval from the Corps would be mostly eliminated. SPGP IV further increased the efficiency of both State and Federal staff in serving the public. Currently, SPGP IV-R1 has expanded the geographic coverage by including the counties in the panhandle area. Therefore, SPGP IV-R1 will be implemented throughout the entire State of Florida, excluding Monroe County, continuing environmental protection while increasing the service to the public.
