Per subsection 62-210.370(4), F.A.C., unless otherwise provided by rule (see Other Rules below) or more stringent permit condition, the owner or operator of a relocatable facility must submit a Facility Relocation Notification form to the Department at least 30 days prior to the relocation. A separate form shall be submitted for each facility in the case of the relocation of multiple facilities which are jointly owned or operated. Submit the Facility Relocation Notification tothe DEP district office or local air program office that has permitting authority for the area in which the air pollution source is to be relocated. In addition to the Facility Relocation Notification form, provide a scale map (e.g., the relevant portion of a USGS topographic map) showing the proposed new location of the facility.
New: The Division of Air Resource Management recently implemented an electronic submittal process for facility relocation notifications in the Department’s online Business Portal. Asphalt plants, concrete batching plants, and non-metallic mineral processing plants (crushers) that are permitted as relocatable facilities under the Air General Permit Program can now take advantage of this online process to expedite submittal of relocation notifications. By submitting a relocation notification via the Business Portal in lieu of submitting a paper form, your company will help ensure that notifications are timely and consistently processed by the Department, as well as promote accurate and up-to-date facility information in Department databases.
To access this online process, go to the Business Portal (http://www.fldepportal.com/go/home) and sign in (or register if you’re a new user) from the link in the upper right corner of the page. From the Welcome page, select the Submit option, then select Registration/Notification, and then click on Air General Permit Relocation Notification. Once in the process, just carefully read the instructions on each screen (and under the Help tabs) to complete the relocation notification.
