North Carolina rolls out renewed 2019 CGP
On April 1, NC embarked on a few new components for the renewed CGP. NCDEQ held numerous meetings with work groups and interested parties to help shape the permit.
NC now uses an e-NOI process to assist in streamlining the permitting process and also allows regulators to compile project data and statistics for EPA. Upon NCDEQ or local program approval of the E&SC/SWPPP, permittees log in project details to obtain an e-Certificate of Coverage under the CGP. A $100 annual CGP permit fee is scheduled to go into effect on August 1 in order to obtain a COC.
An e-NOT process has also been implemented.
All E&SC/SWPPPs must now include two specific construction detail sheets that provide guidance on complying with 1) Ground Stabilization and Materials Handling and 2) Inspection, Recordkeeping, and Reporting.
Thus far, the new procedures have been working well but do involve additional time and resources to implement and manage.
