2014 Phase II Designations

The cities of New Bern, Lexington, and Statesville were notified on May 8, 2014 that they are subject to NPDES MS4 Permitting requirements under Phase II because they are now located in an urbanized area (UA) according to the 2010 census.  EPA requires local governments with populations over 10,000 that own or operate an MS4 with an urbanized area  to submit an application for a Phase II Stormwater Discharge Permit.

Application Forms and Checklists for Local Governments Affected

Session Law 2006-246, Section 4.(a)(b) outlines a “Delineation Process” to establish regulated coverage areas in unincorporated areas outside a municipality that is designated as a regulated entity. If these areas are delineated, post-construction stormwater requirements in the session law will apply there. Maps of the areas identified as candidates for delineation are in Table 1 below. A list of public entities located in whole or in part in the candidate coverage areas is provided in Table 2 below.
