Title Standard Joint Permit Application and Tidewater Joint Permit Application for the Virginia Water Protection (VWP) Permit Program
Document ID GM17-2002
Summary The Joint Permit Applications (JPA) are used by Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), the US Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), the Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC), and local wetlands boards as the mechanisms for applying for work in all types of surface waters in the Commonwealth. The Standard JPA is the more commonly used application, whereas the Tidewater JPA is used for mostly shoreline projects in the Tidewater region of Virginia. Both forms are used to permit projects under Virginia Water Protection (VWP) Permit Program. Revisions to the JPA forms were made primarily due to amendments made to the VWP Program Permit Regulations effective August 2, 2016 (9VAC25-210, 9VAC25-660, 9VAC25-670, 9VAC25-680, and 9VAC25-690), but also due to new VMRC regulations for living shorelines, and others.
