Notice of Rule Proposal
Ninety-Day Construction Permits rules, N.J.A.C. 7:1C-1.5

Public Notice
Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing amendments to the Ninety-Day Construction Permits rules. A statement of the substance of the proposal follows:

The proposed amendments relate to an increase in application fees for stream encroachment permits, which are issued under the Flood Hazard Area Control Act, N.J.S.A. 58:16A-50 et seq. The stream encroachment permit fees currently collected by the Department amount to approximately 50% of the cost of operating the flood hazard regulatory program. In order to close this gap and avoid increasing dependence on legislative appropriations to fund this program, the Department is proposing to double application fees. Stream encroachment permit fees were last increased in March 1993.

The proposal is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated May 5, 2003. The proposal can be viewed or downloaded at A copy of the proposal is also available by e-mailing the Department at or by calling the Department at (609) 984-3444. Be advised that there may be a fee for obtaining a copy of the proposal from some sources.

A public hearing concerning the proposal is scheduled as follows:
