Environmental Resource Permits (ERP) Pre-Application Meeting Request

Form Instructions:

An ERP Pre‐Application Meeting Request Form must be filled out for each project to be discussed. There will be no more than two projects scheduled per hour. Each project will be assigned a pre‐application number.

Appointments in Tampa are scheduled two-three weeks in advance. However, there may be same‐week availability at the Bartow, Brooksville or Sarasota offices, if you submit this request no later than 3 p.m. the Wednesday prior to the meeting days. If you have extenuating circumstances that require a meeting time other than noted in the schedule below or have additional questions, contact the ERP Pre‐Application Request Line at (813) 985‐7481 or 1‐800‐ 836‐0797 (FL Only), ext. 4336.

After your request is processed, you will receive a meeting invitation via email confirming the date and time of your meeting within one business day. You may forward this invitation to any other people that need to be notified of the meeting. If you do not receive an email confirmation (meeting invitation) from District staff, you do not have a meeting date and time.

Please note: This form is for only ERP Pre‐Application Meeting Requests. If you would like a pre‐application meeting for a water use permit, call the Tampa Service Office at (813) 985‐7481 and ask for April Breton at ext. 2049 or Owen Thornberry at ext. 6549.

If you prefer, this form is also available in PDF format » (Filled out PDF forms can be mailed to ERP_PreAppRequest@WaterMatters.org)
