On October 5, 2021, the NJDEP’s Division of Land Resource Protection (formerly the Division of Land Use Regulation) will begin requiring all applications for general permits, individual permits, and transition area waivers to be submitted electronically. This class will explain how to prepare and submit electronic applications, including how to prepare and submit site plans with a digital signature and seal. DEP staff will also provide a live demonstration of the online application service, walking you through the entire electronic submission process, step by step.
This class will also address common pitfalls in the application process for coastal, freshwater wetlands, and flood hazard area permits (as outlined below), so that you can avoid these issues in your applications.
Coastal Permit Applications
- Incomplete applications, including missing tidal station datum, engineering certificates, and traffic studies and levels of service
- Addressing certain site conditions, such as common ownership, the legality of existing structures and land cover, and shellfish and submerged aquatic vegetation
- Bulkhead and dock issues, such as bump outs and interference with navigation
Freshwater Wetlands Permit Applications
- Applying for the correct permit
- Sewer Service Area determinations and consistency with the State Water Quality Management Plan (WQMP)
- Applying for a Phase IA report
Flood Hazard Area Permit Applications
- Hydrology issues, such as determining the drainage area, choice of unit hydrograph, and peak flow rate attenuation
- Hydraulics issues, including HEC-RAS warning notes, lengths of study reaches, and floodways and negative surcharge
- Red flag items, including identification of the seasonal high groundwater elevation, culvert openings, and alternative fill
