COASTAL GENERAL PERMIT 32 – Dredging of sand from a man-made lagoon deposited as a result of a storm event declared a State of Emergency

The Coastal General Permit 32 authorizes dredging of sand from a man-made lagoon.  The sand must have been deposited as a result of a storm event for which the Governor declared a State of Emergency.  The particulars of this general permit include:   

  • A complete application for this general permit must be received by the Department no later than 24 months after the date the Governor declared a State of Emergency.
  • The volume of sand to be dredged is limited to that deposited as a result of the storm event.
  • The area to be dredged is limited to that where the sand was deposited as a result of the storm event.
  • The sand removed by dredging is placed on an upland site, dewatered as necessary within a temporary dewatering area, and capped with a six-inch layer of clean fill and stabilized.
  • No wetlands are present within 25 feet of the dredged area.
  • Any debris contained within the dredged sand shall be removed and disposed of properly.

You can read the full details in the rule at N.J.A.C.7:7-7.32.

If your project does not meet the requirements or limitations of Coastal General Permit 32, it may qualify for a permit-by-rule, other general permit, or a Waterfront Development Individual Permit.  Please review those tabs under Coastal Permitting for additional information.
