Individual and general draft permits have been developed by the North Carolina Division of Water Quality for small municipal storm sewer systems that discharge to the waters of North Carolina. This includes Burlington. Both the individual and general draft permits are being made available for public comment. Four public hearings have been scheduled across the state to gather comments. A public hearing has been scheduled in Burlington at the May Memorial Library on Thursday, December 16th from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM.
Copies of the draft permits and information on the public comment process can be obtained from the Stormwater Permitting Unit website at this link
