EPC Rule Changes Proposed for Hillsborough County


Dear Stakeholder:


On April 22, 2021, the Environmental Protection Commission (EPC) staff will conduct a public workshop regarding proposed rule revisions to Chapter V of the “Basis of Review for Authorization of Activities Pursuant to Chapter 1-11 – Wetlands” (BOR). Chapter V deals with the Miscellaneous Activities in Wetlands (MAIW) permitting program. MAIWs are wetland permits for development which is of nominal consequence to the wetland and do not require a reasonable use analysis or mitigation. All other chapters of the BOR are not subject to revision.


The purpose of the proposed rule revision is to clarify existing MAIW permitting criteria regarding construction and non- construction related activities such as boardwalks, docks, rip rap, other shoreline activities, and whole lake treatment.




Workshop registration is free.  The meeting will be conducted using the WebEx video conferencing platform.  Registrants will have the option to join the live virtual session via video conferencing or phone. Please note that all Workshop sessions will be recorded. By registering and participating in the Workshop you consent to be recorded.




APRIL 22nd – 12:00 PM SESSION


Should you have questions about registering for the workshop, please send an email to on or before April 21, 2021.  Written comments may be sent to by May 6, 2021 if you are unable to attend a session or have comments or concerns you wish to submit.  EPC Rules only become final after a public hearing conducted by the Commission.  No public hearing date is set yet.  We look forward to seeing you soon.
