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. The Corps’ May 31, 2011, summary of the comments received during the 30-day public comment period, the individual citizen and state agency comments, and the University’s response are available through these links.
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, and both letters are available through these links.
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 posted on this website 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 as well as divided into text and appendices (below).
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.
