FDEP Generic Construction Permit
Any construction site (publically or privately owned) that disturbs one acre or more of land, is required to seek coverage under the FDEP Generic Permit for Stormwater Discharge from Large and Small Construction Activities (CGP).
It is the CGP that includes the requirement that a Notice of Intent (NOI) and Notice of Termination (NOT) be submitted to FDEP. It is also the CGP that requires completion of a stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP). Visit FDEP's webpage related to construction activity.
