Construction Less than One (1) Acre

Construction on less than one (1) acre of land is not subject to stormwater permitting.  This exception may not be applied when the construction is part of a larger common plan of development with a planned disturbance of one acre or greater. 

This exemption applies only to permitting procedures and does not apply to any discharge of sediment or other form of water pollution that may leave a small site. These discharges may be defined as illicit discharges.
