General Permits

No public notice is required for an application for a general permit authorization and the application fee for a general permit is $500.00 (except for general permits 1 and 6 at N.J.A.C. 7:13-8.3 and 8.8, respectively, for which there is no application fee). A 45-day review period applies to general permit applications, except for general permit 1 at N.J.A.C. 7:13-8.3, which has either a 15-day or 60-day review. An authorization under a general permit will be automatically approved if the Department does not reject or deny the application within 45 days of the receipt of a complete application. It is important to note that multiple or repeated activities on a site, which may individually qualify for authorization under a general permit, require an individual permit if the cumulative impacts exceed any limit contained in the applicable general permit.

This list of General Permits provides a brief discription of each permit. For detailed information, click on the citation for the permit you are interested in and it will take you to the appropriate section of the rules.
