Webinar: Using the Supplemental Information for Federal Permitting Form
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida's five water management districts and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers worked together to create a "Supplemental Information for Federal Permitting" form to be used in conjunction with the ERP joint application. Use of this form when submitting ERP applications will help ensure that the Corps gets the information it needs to process federal permits. Including this information is expected to reduce the amount of additional information the Corps must request to process federal permits. Please join us on March 1, 2017, as we discuss the form, where to find it and how to submit it using the state agencies' electronic application portals.
Regulatory programs help us to better manage and protect regional water resources. The resources include wetlands, rivers, lakes and estuaries as well as groundwater supplies. The South Florida Water Management District's regulatory responsibilities are shared with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and other state and local governments.
To enhance the efficiency of the business process for permit applicants, our ePermitting database offers a quick, simple way to apply for, transfer or submit payment for Environmental Resource, Consumptive Water Use and Works of the District permits. The online system also enables anyone to research the status of permit applications. This convenient access reduces applicant paperwork requirements and postage while shrinking permit processing time to enable faster routing to permit review staff.
Users who register with the service can also sign up to be notified of timely permitting information and access helpful guidelines and assistance.
