Section 401 water quality certification pre-filing meeting request

The Water Quality Certification Improvement Rule (WQCIR) requires the project proponent request a pre-filing meeting at least 30 days prior to submitting a request for certification unless the certifying authority waives this requirement. SJRWMD hereby waives the pre-filing meeting request requirement. SJRWMD applicants do not need to request a pre-filing meeting prior to submitting an Environmental Resource Permit (ERP) application.  An applicant may request a pre-application meeting to discuss their activity with SJRWMD staff through the ePermit website; however, neither the meeting nor request are requiredThis specifically waives the pre-filing meeting request requirement of the WQCIR and IS NOT a waiver of certification nor regulatory review.
