SAJ-2006-05479 (PGP-DEB) SAJ-80

Published July 6, 2017
Expiration date: 8/7/2017
Pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. §1344) and Section of the 10 Rivers and Harbors Act (33 U.S.C. § 403), the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida (Tribe) has requested re-authorization of Programmatic General Permit (PGP) SAJ-80 which, would authorize ten activities that would result in either a discharge of dredged or fill material and/or be located in or over waters of the United States.  Activities, which would result in a discharge of dredged or fill material in waters of the United States could not exceed a total of 100 acres.  The Tribe’s request for re-authorization is based on an anticipated population growth, which has been estimated to be approximately 9.45% annually.  This population growth would require additional housing, educational facilities, and infrastructure, to include updates to existing buildings to meet current codes.  The proposed activities would occur within seven areas identified by the Tribe.  The Tribe proposes to enhance, restore, and potentially establish wetlands located on 2,434 acres within Sherrod Ranch in Hendry County.  Sherrod Ranch was purchased in 1998 as a source of mitigation for Tribal projects and is under federal trust status according to the Bureau of Indian Affairs.  The Ranch is located immediately north of the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s Big Cypress Reservation “native area,” which is the location of the Seminole Advanced Mitigation Program.
