(Session Law 2010-177): (post-construction) Permits. Permits issued prior to Jan. 1, 2008 and valid between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2010 have been extended for four years. For example, a permit effective from April 30, 2000 through April 30, 2010 is extended until April 30, 2014. New permits issued between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2010 will have an expiration date that is extended for the amount of time the permit has been active between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2010. For example, a new permit issued on May 14, 2009 that usually has a ten-year permit limit will have an expiration date of December 30, 2021. This reflects the ~20 months the permit was active prior to the end of 2010. Please click on the above link to view the Session Law. To view all active and expired State Stormwater Permits, with the new expiration dates reflected, please see the excel spreadsheet on the SPU homepage. Please direct questions regarding this matter to Robert Patterson.
2011 Legislative Session - Changes in legislation have removed the Authorization to Construct (ATC) requirements for wastewater treatment and disposal systems at industrial facilities with discharge permits. Session Law 2011-394 (Section 9) discontinued the ATC requirements as of July 1, 2011. As these changes affect the review process for the NCG020000, NCG140000, and NCG240000 General Permits, The Stormwater Permitting Unit will be revising and posting more specific information and guidance in the coming weeks.
