excavatorConstruction Activities (5G3)

This general permit authorizes point source discharges from certain construction activities. Regulated entities are required to develop a soil erosion and sediment control plan aimed at eliminating the flow of contaminated rainwater into streams and rivers. On October 1, 2009, NJDEP launched the Stormwater Construction E-Permitting System. With the implementation of this system, the State Soil Conservation District offices no longer accept Stormwater Construction General Permit Request for Authorization (RFA) forms. All RFAs shall be submitted electronically using the NJDEP Online portal to access this electronic application service. If necessary, paper applications may be submitted to the NJDEP Permit Administration Section on a form provided by the Department. Below are links to access the E-Permitting system as well as guidance materials to aid in the process.
