Enacts new GS 143-214.15 prohibiting the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) from requiring or issuing a water quality certification under section 401 the Clean Water Act if it fails or refuses to act on a request for a certification within one year after receiving the request. In such cases, the certification requirement is deemed to be waived.
Sets out the General Assembly's finding that DENR's failure to act on a certification request under section 401(a)(1) of the Clean Water Act within a reasonable time, not to exceed one year, constitutes a waiver of the certification requirement.
Effective July 1, 2013.
