Program change effective Oct. 1, 2017

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will no longer be participating in the Joint Application process beginning Oct. 1, 2017.  If your project does not qualify for either SPGP V or SAJ-111 and your project requires a USACE permit, you must apply separately to USACE using the appropriate federal application form for activities under federal jurisdiction. Please see the USACE Jacksonville District Regulatory Sourcebook for more information about federal permitting, which contains a link to the USACE permit application form ENG 4345USACE will not receive any new joint applications or process applications still deemed incomplete beginning Oct. 1, 2017. 

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permits administered by the district

SPGP V

On July 26, 2016, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) issued a new State Programmatic General Permit (SPGP V) that authorizes the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and any water management district that enters into a coordination agreement with USACE, to issue a permit on behalf of USACE for certain types of projects with relatively minor impacts to wetlands or surface waters. This authorization is limited to the following types of projects: (1) shoreline stabilization, (2) boat ramps, (3) docks, piers and other minor piling supported structures, (4) maintenance dredging of canals and channels, and (5) minor transient projects (such as derelict vessel removal, certain geotechnical investigations, and living shoreline projects). On July 26, 2016, the St. Johns River Water Management District entered into a coordination agreement with USACE that allows the district to grant federal authorization on behalf of USACE under the SPGP V.

Please note, while similar in nature, SPGP IV-R1 (which expired on July 25, 2016) and SPGP V do not authorize the same scope of projects. If you recently received an SPGP IV-R1 authorization on or before July 25, 2016, authorization to use this permit is automatically extended for one calendar year only if the project was funded for construction by July 25, 2016. If your project was not funded for construction by July 25, 2016, and you need to receive re-authorization under SPGP V, please contact the district to confirm your project qualifies for SPGP V.

SAJ-111

In October 2014, USACE issued a Programmatic General Permit (PGP) that authorizes the district to issue a permit on behalf of USACE for certain types of projects with relatively minor impacts to wetlands or surface waters. This authorization is limited to residential, commercial or institutional projects with up to 3 acres of impacts to low quality or urbanized non-tidal wetlands of the following four types: 1) wetlands in pine plantations with raised beds in production over 20 years, 2) herbaceous wetlands in improved pasture, 3) wetlands on parcels bordered by at least 75 percent development, and 4) wetlands covered by greater than 80 percent invasive exotic vegetation.
