Statement of purpose of bill as introduced: This bill proposes to amend the requirement that the Secretary of Natural Resources issue a general permit for discharges 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 a stormwater management manual issued after 2002. The bill would direct the Secretary to establish criteria by which the Secretary shall prioritize the permitting of parcels. The bill would also amend the schedule for permitting. In addition, the bill provides that stormwater offsets and stormwater impact fees may be completed or assessed for discharges of phosphorus to Lake Memphremagog or a water that contributes to the impairment of Lake Memphremagog.
