In the latest stage of the application process that addresses stream and wetland impacts at the Carolina North site, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill responded June 29, 2011, to citizen and state agency comments received about the application by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
On June 3, 2011, the N.C. Division of Water Quality (DWQ) requested additional information for the 401 Water Quality Certification application for Carolina North. The University responded June 27, 2011.
The University first submitted its application for a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Individual Permit and a 401 Water Quality Certification in January 2011. After submittal, the Corps made two requests for additional information, and the University responded with the required information. The application has been updated with this additional information, and the two Corps requests for additional information and the University’s responses are also included as separate items, January 18, 2011, ACE notice and UNC-CH response, and February 24, 2011, ACE notice and UNC-CH response. The complete application is available as one PDF.
When the Corps deemed the application complete, it issued a 30-day Public Notice, April 8-May 9, 2011. During this time, the Corps accepted comments from the public and considered them in the evaluation of the application.
