A. To determine the fee for projects based on acreage delineation, the total disturbed area for that project will be calculated and used for determining the fee. Open space within the project will be included in this calculation.
IV. APPLICABILITY OF FEE SCHEDULE
A. The fee schedule shall apply to plans that are submitted to the Conservation District requesting determination of Erosion and Sedimentation pollution control adequacy. All initial E&SC Plan submissions with 5 or more acres of earth disturbance must include an NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit for Construction Activities) permit application. All initial E&SC Plan submissions with 1 to 4.99 acres of earth disturbance and a point source discharge must include an NPDES Permit application. ?Point source discharge to surface waters of the commonwealth? applies only to projects between 1 and 4.99 acres.
The Conservation District will assume that all sites will have a point source discharge. If a plan preparer believes a project does not meet these criteria and does not submit an NPDES permit application package, then written justification (may be included in the transmittal letter) must be submitted with the request for E&SC plan review. The Conservation District?s first review letter will address whether or not the request for permit exemption is accepted. An applicant needing to apply for a (NPDES) permit shall do so by using the appropriate NPDES program documentation. This appropriate NPDES Permit fee will be paid to the "CARBON CONSERVATION DISTRICT NPDES FUND". If the project is phased or parceled, each phase or parcel will be individually subject to the appropriate fee based on number of lots or acreage delineation. Each resubmission of different projects on the same tract of land will be charged according to the fee schedule.
A. The applicant shall submit a check or money order payable to the CARBON CONSERVATION DISTRICT, two (2) complete sets of Erosion and Sedimentation Pollution Control Plans and one (1) copy of the review application. All plans must be submitted in a folded manner. No rolled plans will be accepted. If a NPDES Permit is required please contact the Conservation District prior to the submittal to discuss submission requirements.
D. The Conservation District encourages that a pre-application meeting is scheduled between the landowner, plan designer and the District Staff prior to the submittal of larger plans. This meeting is necessary to discuss the project and permitting requirements and could eliminate unnecessary paperwork and deficient submittals.
