Individual Removal-Fill Permit Application Review Process
(1)Completeness Review. Within 30 calendar days of the receipt of an application, the Department will review the application to determine if it is complete and adequately addresses the application requirements.
(2)Notification of Completeness Determination. Following the completeness review, the Department will inform the applicant of one of the following findings:
(a)The application is complete and will proceed to the public review process;
(b)The application is incomplete because of certain deficiencies; or
(c)The project does not require an authorization from the Department (no state permit required).
(3)Incomplete Application. If the Department determines that the application is incomplete or deficient, the Department will notify the applicant in writing and list the missing or deficient information. The application will be suspended awaiting revision. To initiate a new completeness review, the applicant must resubmit the entire amended application package for consideration, unless instructed by the Department to do otherwise. Submission of a new or amended application package starts a new 30-day initial review period.
(4)Timeframe for Resubmittal of Incomplete Applications. If a revised application is not resubmitted within 120 calendar days of an incompleteness determination, the Department may administratively close the application. If the Department closes the file for failure of the applicant to respond in a timely fashion to the request for additional information, the Department will retain the application fee. A subsequent application for the same or similar project will require submittal of a new application and payment of an application fee.
