Stormwater Permitting Program 

The Stormwater Permitting Program develops, plans and implements statewide stormwater control policies, strategies and rules designed to protect surface waters of North Carolina from the impacts of stormwater pollutants and runoff. Staff handles permitting for industrial, municipal and post-construction (development projects) stormwater programs, and provides technical assistance to the regulated community, engineers, industry, citizens and local governments.

NPDES General Permits NCG17 (Textiles), NCG18 (Furniture), NCG15 (Airports), NCG16 (Asphalt), and NCG19 (Marinas) expire in July, August, and September 2014.  Although some permits state otherwise, permittees DO NOT NEED TO SUBMIT any paper application to renew the COC unless directed by the Division (see 15A NCAC 02H .0127(e)).  Permittees should fill out our Online Renewal Request Form.  So far, we have received these responses (as of April 14th).
Individual NPDES Stormwater Permits expiring in 2013-14:  We are mailing renewal packages specific to your facility out to you.  However, if you wish to fill out blank form and supplements sooner, you can use this NCS Renewal Forms Package.  You can also find MS Word versions of these forms here

State Stormwater Programs

The State Stormwater Permitting Programs regulate site development and post-construction stormwater runoff control.  Areas subject to these permit programs include all 20 coastal counties, and various other counties and watersheds throughout the state.  Areas subject can be found using the Interactive Stormwater Permitting Map Viewer.  What does Phase II have to do with State Stormwater?
