Name: 02H Stormwater Rule Revisions per S.L. 2011-220
Public comment is invited pending publication in the NC Register 27:13 on January 2, 2013. Notice is hereby given in accordance with G.S. 150B-21.2 that the Department of Environment and Natural Resources intends to amend the rules cited as 15A NCAC 02H .0152 and 15A NCAC 02H .1016. These rules are being proposed for amendment as required per Session Law 2011-220. That SL modified the criteria of whether whole counties would be required to implement the Phase II post-construction stormwater requirements county-wide. This led to one county no longer meeting the requirements to be subject to county-wide Phase II post-construction stormwater. SL 2011-220 amended SL 2006-246, of which those requirements in SL 2006-246 have since been placed in 15A NCAC 02H .0100 and 15A NCAC 02H .1000 (eff. 7/3/2012). Therefore the NCAC must be amended per the direction of SL 2011-220. There is no change to the current requirements being implemented by adopting these rules. No public hearing is scheduled. Per G.S. 150B-21.2(c) and (e), a request to hold a public hearing may be submitted in writing.
