This Act establishes a centralized and coordinated permitting process for the location of natural gas transmission pipeline corridors and the construction and maintenance of natural gas transmission pipelines. The Act intends to achieve a reasonable balance between the need for the natural gas transmission pipeline as a means of providing abundant natural gas and the impact on the public and the environment resulting from the location of the natural gas transmission pipeline corridor and the construction and maintenance of the natural gas transmission pipelines. As part of the Act, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) handles in-state environmental regulatory matters for wetlands crossings, discharge of hydrostatic test waters and other applicable areas. No projects have yet been certified under the Natural Gas Pipeline Siting Act.
