Special Public Notice          Regional General Permit (DRAFT)

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  To reissue an RGP authorizing the discharge of dredge or fill material associated with performing routine maintenance and emergency repairs to existing stormwater management facilities, under the jurisdiction of the HCFCD.

Maintenance includes repair, rehabilitation, and replacement of structural and earthen features, removal of sediment and debris to restore previously authorized cross-sectional configurations, erosion protection, or emergency repairs required as a result of discrete natural events.  Temporary construction, access, and dewatering is authorized provided that the associated primary maintenance activity is authorized under the RGP.  Only the minimum volume of fill material, needed to accomplish the purpose of each project, would be used. 

Avoidance and minimization will be considered before any maintenance project is proposed.  Natural stable channel techniques will be used wherever possible.  There are no proposed changes to this RGP, compared to the current RGP, with the exception of updating the special conditions to reflect current regulations and requirements.  The full text of the proposed RGP is attached.
