Streams & Rivers - The Flood Hazard Area Control Act
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.
