In July 2012, the State delegated permit review for Stormwater Plans for new development within the Falls Lake watershed to units of local government. Rather than applying to the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ) for both the required stormwater plan and the soil erosion and sedimentation permit for residential construction involving one-half acre of land disturbance or 12,000 square feet of land disturbance for non-residential purposes, the permit review responsibilities have been divided. Soil erosion and sedimentation control permits are still reviewed and issued by NCDEQ-DEMLR. Stormwater control plans are now reviewed locally with permits issued through the City’s Planning Department.
The City's water & sewer approved by a Local Stormwater Plan for New Development to the NC Environmental Management Commission.
Concept Plan and Consultation Meeting
An application pre-submission meeting with the Stormwater Administrator and other members of the Stormwater Services team is strongly advised. The stormwater permit application process is explained fully in the Creedmoor Development Ordinance, Article 19, Section 19.16.
In order for a stormwater permit to be reviewed and issued by the City of Creedmoor, several documents must be submitted. The documentation required to apply for a stormwater permit consists of:
• City Stormwater Permit Application;
• Snap Tool (an interactive Excel spreadsheet that calculates nutrient reduction);
• Three (3) sets of plans;
• A copy of the operations and maintenance manual for the engineered SCM’s proposed;
• Application fee (as listed in the City's Fee and Rate Schedule)
Once the stormwater permit is approved, two additional documents may be required.
