Information for Federal and State Agencies
The Division of Water Resources hosted a meeting with federal and state agencies affected by the Jordan and Falls Lake Rules in March 2011. Below are links to the meeting presentations and the Nutrient Loading Accounting Tool that federal and state agencies are required to use.
*Note (May 10, 2013): The tools found below are Version 2.0. Several errors were identified in the original tool such that under certain limited development scenarios, it produced erroneous results. Those errors were corrected and none of the tool's other functions have been changed. To help track versions, all sheets in the tool include a label at the top noting "Ver2.0". Please begin using Version 2.0 from this point forward.
Memo to Developers & Local Governments This memorandum identifies an issue in the design of the approved Jordan/Falls Stormwater Load Accounting Tool and offers guidance on how developers and local governments should enter the square-footage of riparian buffers, wetlands and open water into the tool. The division asks local governments to share this memorandum with developers in their jurisdictions.
Surface Water Identification & Training Certification Course
The Jordan Buffer Protection Rule (15A NCAC 02B .0267) requires local governments to make on-site determinations to determine applicability of the buffer rule. It further clarifies that only a staff person that has completed the N.C. Division of Water Resources’s Surface Water Identification & Training Certification (SWITC) course may make those on-site determinations. For more information about the SWITC courses, including dates for future courses, click here.
