Proposed Water Quality General Certifications and Isolated and Other non-404 Jurisdictional Wetlands and Waters Permit Revisions

The Division of Water Resources (DWR) invites public comment on proposed revisions to 401 Water Quality General Certifications (GCs) and the Isolated and Other non-404 Jurisdictional Wetlands and Waters Permit (IWP).  These revisions are being undertaken as part of the reissuance of Nationwide Permits administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers scheduled for March 2017. 

The complete text of each revised GC and the revised IWP is available online: http://deq.nc.gov/about/divisions/water-resources/water-resources-permits/wastewater-branch/401-wetlands-buffer-permits/401-general-certifications.  The file names are shown as the existing GC number suffixed by REV (revision).  For example, the proposed changes to GC3890 will be listed as a hyperlink to the document named “3890REV.”  Within each draft revised GC and IWP, items to be deleted are shown as struck through, and items to be added are shown as underlined.  If you lack internet access, please contact Sue Homewood at 336-776-9693 to request copies of the specific draft revised GCs you would like to review.
