General Permits

Public notice is required for an application for a general permit authorization and the application fee for a general permit is $1000.00 (except for general permit 1 at N.J.A.C. 7:13-9.1, general permit 4 at N.J.A.C. 7:13-9.4 and general permit 5 at N.J.A.C. 7:13-9.5 for which there is no application fee). 

A 90-day review period applies to general permit applications, except for general permit 1 at N.J.A.C. 7:13-9.1, 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 90 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 description of each permit. For detailed information, go to the rules at N.J.A.C. 7:13-9.
