Construction NPDES Stormwater
All development projects in North Carolina that disturb an acre or greater of land require a local- or state-approved Erosion and Sedimentation Control (E&SC) plan. The project will be automatically covered by an NPDES Stormwater General Permit NCG010000 for construction-related activities, provided that the ground stabilization and basin design requirements in that permit are included in the E&SC Plan.
