Re: Follow-Up Regarding Administrative Order 2012-09 - NJDEP Websites
On September 18, 2012, NJDEP Commissioner Bob Martin issued Administrative Order (AO) #2012-09. The AO exempts State, County and Municipal agencies from DEP’s formal permit procedures for a specific category of emergency activities relative to public infrastructure.
Following NJDEP’s September 25, 2012 email announcing the AO, they have received questions regarding the procedure and content of the comprehensive inventory of projects that must be submitted to DEP to receive approval under the AO. In response, DEP has developed a template Excel spreadsheet that should be used when completing your comprehensive inventories. The spreadsheet contains specific information that will assist DEP in our review of the inventories.
The template can be downloaded at http://www.state.nj.us/dep/landuse/forms.html under the "General Forms" tab.
DEP has also updated the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) to provide further guidance about the template and submission process. The updated FAQs can be found at http://www.nj.gov/dep/docs/ao2012-09faq.pdf.
Please review the updated information and contact DEP if you have specific questions regarding emergency activities in your jurisdiction. Please contact Richard Langbein (for Mercer County and north) at firstname.lastname@example.org or Keith Stampfel (for Monmouth County and south) at email@example.com. If you have general questions regarding the Administrative Order or the submittal process, please contact Ryan Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
