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

State Programmatic General Permit

The Jacksonville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) issued an expanded State Programmatic General Permit (SPGP V) on July 26, 2016. The purpose of the SPGP is 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. SPGP reduces the need for separate approval from the Corps for the approved project types, and increases the efficiency of both State and Federal staff in serving the public. SPGP V will be implemented throughout the entire State of Florida, continuing environmental protection while increasing service to the public.

  • SPGP V includes the following categories of work:
  • Shoreline Stabilization (now expanded to include living shorelines)
  • Boat Ramps and Boat Launch Areas and Structures Associated with Such Ramps or Launch Areas
  • Docks, Piers, Associated Facilities, and other Minor Piling-Supported Structures
  • Maintenance Dredging of Canals and Channels
  • Transient Activities, including:
    • Removal of derelict vessels
    • Scientific sampling, measurement, and monitoring devices
    • Upland to upland directional drilling (HDD)
    • Geotechnical investigations
