Bill summary

This act is applicable only in counties that have a stormwater utility and where all or a portion of two water supply watersheds are located within the county's borders. 

Amends GS 113A-52.01(1), which specifies that the Sedimentation Pollution Control Act does not apply to activities including those specified, undertaken on agricultural land for the production of plants and animals useful to man. Adds that this exception does not limit the application of the Sedimentation Pollution Control Act by a local erosion and sedimentation control program to the use of agricultural land for disposing of debris more than 30 feet above existing grade or for other nonfarm purposes.
