The General Permit for Storm Water Discharge Associated with Construction Activity was issued on September 9, 2003. Included in the newly issued General Permit are Phase II requirements that require permit coverage for construction sites disturbing equal to and greater than one acre and less than five acres (referred to as small construction activity) as well as sites less than one acre of total land area that are part of a larger common plan of development or sale if the larger common plan will ultimately disturb equal to or greater than one and less than five acres.
