ENVIRONMENTAL RESOURCE PERMITTING
FORMS, FEES AND OTHER INFORMATION

INTRODUCTION: Attached are the joint application and supplemental forms needed for: 1)
activities regulated under Part IV of Chapter 373, Florida Statute; 2) activities which require
authorization to use state owned submerged lands; or 3) activities which require a federal dredge and
fill permit. Pages C-4 and C-5 of this manual list project activities, the type of permit and the ERP
application forms usually required.

PRE-APPLICATION REVIEW: The regulation process can be assisted if the applicant elects to
undergo one or more pre-application review conferences with District staff. Such meetings can help
the applicant and the project designers to better understand District rules and regulations, and help
District staff understand the project. Certain activities may qualify for an exemption. If an activity
qualifies for an exemption, an ERP application is not required, although the use of the application
forms may be the most expeditious way for the agencies to make a determination whether the
activity qualifies for an exemption.

PROCESSING AGENCY: Applications should be submitted to the appropriate processing agency.
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) issues some types of permits, and the
Water Management Districts (WMDs) issue others. Pages C-56 through C-64 will help you
understand which agency should receive your application.

DISTRICT AND DEPARTMENT SERVICE OFFICES: Applications should be made to the
appropriate District or Department Service Office serving the area in which the activity is proposed. t
Locations of District Regulation Service Offices are shown on the inside front cover of this manual,
and locations of Department Service Offices are shown on the inside back cover.

If you have any questions, such as: what permit is required, where to submit your application, how
the language in any section applies to your activity, what fee to include, please contact the staff of
the nearest office of either the District or Department. Remember that the regulation process can be
assisted if the applicant elects to undergo pre-application review with the District staff early in the
project planning process.

COPIES AND FEES: Submit an original set of completed and signed application forms, plus four
copies of all forms, and five complete sets of all the requested drawings and other information to the
appropriate District or Department service office.

Submit the appropriate permit processing fee with your application. District permit application
processing fees are listed beginning on page C-51. Failure to provide the correct processing fee or
correct and completed copies of the application can result in processing delays, such as the
application being returned or extensive additional information requirements.

DISTRIBUTION TO THE US ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS (ACOE): When activities are
proposed in, on or over wetlands or other surface waters, a copy of the application will be forwarded
to the ACOE by the reviewing agency. It is not necessary for the applicant to submit a separate
application to the ACOE. The ACOE will advise you of any additional information required to
obtain a federal dredge and fill permit.

information requested below is for projects related to an individual, single family dwelling unit, duplex or
quadraplex which are not part of a larger common plan of development proposed by the applicant. PLEASE
SUBMIT ALL INFORMATION ON 8 %" by 11" PAPER

A. Site Information
1. Directions: provide written directions to the property.

2. Location of work: indicate how the project will be marked on-site. For example: "the center
line of the road is flagged," "a string running between stakes identifies the bulkhead location,"
etc.

B. Drawings
Drawings should be of sufficient detail to clearly show the existing conditions of the site, and the
extent, type, and location of the proposed activities. The drawings should clearly show wetlands or
other surface waters to be temporarily or permanently impacted. Any wetland areas proposed to be
created, enhanced, restored, preserved, or which will remain undisturbed should be identified.

1. Plan View: The plan view should show the work as viewed from above. A survey of the
project site is a useful starting point for preparing plan views of the project Drawings should
include:
a. Applicant name, property lines, north arrow, graphic scale or dimensions of the
proposed work on each drawing sheet.
b. Representative land elevations (spot elevations or contour lines) referred to National
Geodetic Vertical Datum (NGVD), such as those used on the U.S.G.S. contour
maps.
c. Limits of wetlands, other surface waters and open water areas in the vicinity of the
proposed work. Describe how the wetland limits were determined. If there has ever
been a jurisdictional declaratory statement, a formal wetland determination, a formal
determination, validated informal determination, or a revalidated jurisdictional
determination, provide the identifying number.
d. All proposed work, including dredging, filling or structures. Where applicable,
differentiate between work in open water, marshes, swamps, tidal flats and uplands.
e. Show selected water depths in and adjacent to the project site. For dock projects,
show water depths at all mooring areas. Water depths should be determined at
approximate mean low water (MLW) or normal pool. Indicate the tidal range (the
difference between mean high water (MHW) and MLW) if the project is in a tidal
waterbody.

f. Label all existing structures, such as docks, bulkheads, riprap, or buildings, in
wetlands or other surface waters at or adjacent to the proposed activity.


FORM 547.27\ERP(8/94)D


Page 1 of 2


C-17








g. If dredging or dewatering is involved, show the location of proposed spoil or
dewatering sites. Include any levees, control structures or other methods for-N,
retaining or detaining return water. Also include locations of discharge sites where
appropriate. (A Water Use Permit may be required for dewatering.)
h. For piling supported structures over wetlands or other surface waters show the entire
structure and indicate the location of any aquatic vegetation in the vicinity of the
proposed structure.
1. Show distance between the most waterward point of the proposed facility and the
nearest edge of any navigation channel, where appropriate. If the project is on a
waterway that has a federally maintained channel, a survey may be required to
establish the distance from the waterward points of the structure to the near edge of
the federal channel. Also indicate the width of the navigation channel.
j. Clearly show the locations of all corresponding cross-sectional or profile views on
the plan view drawings.

2. Cross-section and Profile Views: The cross-section view should show a "cut-way" view of
the project, while the profile view should show a side view (as if cut lengthwise). Drawings
should include:
a. Applicant name, graphic horizontal and vertical scales or dimensions of the proposed
work on each drawing sheet.
b. Show approximate mean or seasonal high and low water elevations referenced to
NGVD.

C. Project Details
1. Describe the activity that is proposed and construction techniques and sequencing, including
equipment to be used and methods for moving the equipment to and from the site.

2. For projects that involve any dredging or excavation, describe the method of excavation, the
type of material to be excavated, and the disposal location for the excavated material.
Please state whether spoil is to be placed (either temporarily or permanently) in a wetland
or other surface water. Indicate the duration of any temporary fill in wetlands or other surface
waters.

3. For fill projects, describe the source and type of fill material to be used. For activities that
involve the installation of riprap, describe the source, type and size of the rocks, concrete,
or other material to be used for the riprap, and how these materials are to be placed. State
whether the rocks will be underlain with filter cloth.

4. The acreage of excavation and fill, differentiating between temporary and permanent work.

5. Methods for controlling turbidity (muddy water caused by erosion or work in the water).

6. Methods for stabilizing any slopes that will be created or disturbed during construction,
including times expected to elapse before stabilization is performed. Describe both
temporary and permanent stabilization methods such as staked hay bales, temporary grass
seed, and permanent sod.

7. If pilings or a seawall are to be installed, state whether pilings and seawall slabs are to be
installed by jetting or driving.

PROCEDURE


CHAPTER 1









SUMMARY OF ENVIRONMENTAL RESOURCE PERMITTING
RESPONSIBILITIES BY FDEP


The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) is responsible for issuing (or denying)
some types of permits. The Water Management Districts (WMDs) issue (or deny) the remaining
types. This summary only covers typical cases. Applicants with complex or non-typical situations
or who need further clarification should contact the nearest FDEP or WMD office. In Southwest
Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD). the Operating Agreement between FDEP and
SWFWMD dated September 27, 1994 governs this subject.

Typically, the DEP is responsible for reviewing and taking agency action on the following
activities (including compliance and enforcement):

* Systems that serve one single-family dwelling unit, duplex, triplex, or quadraplex on a
contiguous ownership of property of five acres or less, provided the single-family dwelling unit,
duplex, triplex, or quadraplex is not part of a larger common plan of development or sale
proposed by the applicant. The term "system" means a stormwater management system, dam,
impoundment, reservoir, appurtenant work or works, or any combination thereof, including
dredged or filled areas. This term includes the construction of docks, seawalls, structures, and
all other types of dredging or filling in surface waters and wetlands.

* Projects that also need a waste treatment or management permit from DEP:
Solid waste (except certain activities that qualify for general permits)
Hazardous waste (except where the storage of hazardous waste is an incidental part
of the facility)
Domestic wastewater (except for certain applications)
Industrial wastewater (except certain activities that qualify for general permits)

* All mining projects (excluding borrow pits).

* Power plants and electrical distribution and transmission lines, including associated facilities

* Communication cables and lines.

* Natural gas or petroleum exploration activities and facilities, and production pipelines.

* Docking facilities involving the creation of 10 or more new boat slips, including adjacent
docking-related development and associated navigational dredging, except where the docking
facility and associated navigational dredging is part of a larger plan of commercial or residential
development that has received or requires a permit under Part IV of Chapter 373, F.S.

* Activities proposed in whole or in part seaward of the coastal construction control line.


C-67









* Navigational dredging conducted by governmental entities.


* Seaports and adjacent seaport-related development where the applicant or property owner is a
port authority.

The following activities in wetlands and other surface waters when such activities are not part
of a larger plan of development: boat ramps, ski jumps, ski slalom courses, aids to navigation,
mooring buoys and fields, piling supported structures which are not physically connected to
uplands, estuarine and marine aquaculture facilities, fish attractors, artificial reefs, treasure
salvage, and archaeological research or exploration.

Temporary systems for commercial film productions.

High speed rail facilities.

Magnetic levitation demonstration projects.

Mitigation banks primarily for: governmental solid waste, domestic wastewater or industrial
wastewater facilities; mining; power production; communication cables and lines; natural gas
or petroleum exploration activities, facilities and production pipelines; navigational dredging
projects conducted by governmental entities; seaports and related development by port
authorities.

* Modification of permits issued by the DEP. If the permit has been modified, the agency that
issued the last modification to the permit shall process the modification. The DEP shall process
modifications of MSSW permits for solid waste facilities and mining projects.

Typically, the Southwest Florida Water Management District is responsible for reviewing and
taking agency action (including compliance and enforcement) on all other Environmental
Resource Permit Applications.

OPERATING AGREEMENT CONCERNING
REGULATION UNDER PART IV, CHAPTER 373, F.S.
BETWEEN
SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT
AND
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

I. INTENT

The Southwest Florida Water Management District (DISTRICT) and the
State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection
(DEPARTMENT) enter into this operating agreement to further
streamline environmental permitting, while protecting the
environment. This agreement divides responsibility between the
DISTRICT and the DEPARTMENT for the exercise of their authority
regarding permits, compliance, and enforcement under Part IV,
Chapter 373, F.S. This agreement also divides responsibility
between the DISTRICT and the DEPARTMENT regarding formal wetland
determinations pursuant to subsection 373.421(2) through (5), F.S.
It is a goal of this operating agreement that the division of
responsibilities provide no reduction in levels of compliance
monitoring and enforcement and, where possible, allow increased
levels of compliance monitoring and enforcement.

This agreement supersedes the following agreements: Operating
Agreement Concerning Management and Storage of Surface Waters
Regulation, and Wetland Resource Regulation Between Southwest
Florida Water Management District and Department of Environmental
Regulation, dated August 10, 1992; and the First Amendment to
Operating Agreement Concerning Management and Storage of Surface
Waters Regulation, and Wetland Resource Regulation Between
Southwest Florida Water Management District and Department of
Environmental Regulation, dated February 17, 1994.

As a future step to further increase the efficiency and
effectiveness of environmental permitting, the DEPARTMENT and the
DISTRICT shall jointly pursue assumption of the section 404, Clean
Water Act permitting program by the DEPARTMENT and the water
management districts or shall jointly request the issuance of a
statewide programmatic general permit under section 404 of the
Clean Water Act, for all activities regulated by the DEPARTMENT and
the water management districts pursuant to rules adopted under Part
IV of Chapter 373, F.S.
