Take notice that in accordance with the Permit Extension Act (PEA) of 2020 (P.L.2020, c.53), soil conservation district certifications of soil erosion and sediment control plans in existence on March 9, 2020 are eligible to have the running of the period of approval automatically suspended for the COVID-19 extension period. This is the period beginning March 9, 2020 and continuing for as long as a public health emergency, pursuant to the “Emergency Health Powers Act,” P.L.2005, c.222 (C.26:13-1 et seq.), that has been declared by the Governor in response to COVID-19, is in effect. The tolling shall extend the certification of plans at least six months beyond the conclusion of the COVID-19 extension period.
Any certification eligible to be subject to the automatic suspension of the running of the period of approval for the COVID-19 extension period must be registered, by the Permittee, with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. The running period of any certification not registered with the Department of Environmental Protection shall not be suspended for the COVID-19 extension period. The extension shall not apply if a new certification or recertification is required due to changes to the plan or project since March 9, 2020.
