Last Recorded Action: House 1/17/2020 – Read First Time and Referred to the Committee on Natural Resources, Fish, and Wildlife

Subject: Conservation and development; water resources; stormwater; three acre impervious surface permit

Statement of purpose of bill as introduced: This bill proposes to extend by two years the required date by which coverage under a general permit shall be sought for a discharge of stormwater from impervious surface of three or more acres in size when the stormwater discharge previously was not permitted or was permitted under an individual permit or general permit that did not incorporate the requirements of the 2002 Stormwater Management Manual. The bill also would grandfather discharges of stormwater from the requirement to seek coverage under the three-acre permit if the discharge was previously permitted, the current owner of the parcel from which the discharge originates is the original listed permittee on the previously issued individual permit, and the previously issued permit is current or has not expired.
