BISER Secretary BRIAN WRENN Director NORTH CAROLINA Environmental Quality August 18, 2022 LETTER OF APPROVAL WITH MODIFICATIONS Adams Homes AEC, LLC ATTN: Mr. William Bryan Adams, Manager 100 West Garden Street Pensacola, Florida 35502 RE: Project Name: Villa Grande Phase 2 Project ID: Pitt-2019-006 County: Pitt City: Winterville Address: Raymond's Road River Basin: Neuse Date Received by LQS: August 04, 2022 Submitted By: Thomas Engineering, P.A. Plan Type: Revision Dear Sir, Acres Approved: 18.0 This office has reviewed the subject erosion and sedimentation control plan. We find the plan to be acceptable with modifications and hereby issue this letter of Approval with Modifications. The Modifications Required for Approval are listed on the attached page. This plan approval shall expire three (3) years following the date of approval, if no land - disturbing activity has been undertaken, as is required by Title 15A NCAC 413.0129. As of April 1, 2019, all new construction activities are required to complete and submit an electronic Notice of Intent (eNOI) form requesting a Certificate of Coverage (COC) under the NCG010000 Construction General Permit. After the form is reviewed and found to be complete, you will receive a link with payment instructions for the $100 annual permit fee. After the fee is processed, you will receive the COC via email. As the Financially Responsible Party shown on the FRO form submitted for this project, you MUST obtain the COC prior to commencement of any land disturbing activity. The eNOI form may be accessed at deq.nc.gov/NCG01. Please direct questions about the eNOI form to the Stormwater Program staff in the Raleigh central office. If the owner/operator of this project changes in the future, the new responsible party must obtain a new COC. Title 15A NCAC 4B .0118(a) and the NCG01 permit require that the following documentation be kept on file at the job site: North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality I Division of Energy, Mineral and Land Resources E Q Washington Regional Office 1 943 Washington Square Mall I Washington, North Carolina 27889 1. The approved E&SC plan as well as any approved deviation. 2. The NCG01 permit and the COC, once it is received. 3. Records of inspections made during the previous 12 months. Also, this letter gives the notice required by G.S. 113A-61.1(a) of our right of periodic inspection to insure compliance with the approved plan. North Carolina's Sedimentation Pollution Control Program is performance -oriented, requiring protection of existing natural resources and adjoining properties. If, following the commencement of this project, it is determined that the erosion and sedimentation control plan is inadequate to meet the requirements of the Sedimentation Pollution Control Act of 1973 (North Carolina General Statute 113A-51 through 66), this office may require revisions to the plan and implementation of the revisions to ensure compliance with the Act. Acceptance and approval of this plan is conditioned upon your compliance with Federal and State water quality laws, regulations, and rules. In addition, local city or county ordinances or rules may also apply to this land -disturbing activity. This approval does not supersede any other permit or approval. Please note that this approval is based in part on the accuracy of the information provided in the Financial Responsibility Form, which you provided. This permit allows for a land - disturbance, as called for on the application plan, not to exceed the approved acres. Exceeding the acreage will be a violation of this permit and would require a revised plan and additional application fee. You are requested to file an amended form if there is any change in the information included on the form. In addition, it would be helpful if you notify this office of the proposed starting date for this project. Please be advised that a rule to protect and maintain existing buffers along watercourses in the Neuse River Basin became effective on January 01, 2000. The Neuse River Riparian Area Protection and Maintenance Rule (15A NCAC 213 .0714) applies to the 50-foot wide zone directly adjacent to surface waters (intermittent streams, perennial streams, lakes, ponds, and estuaries) in the Neuse River Basin. For more information about this riparian area rule, please contact the Division of Water Resources Wetland/401 Unit at 919-807-6300, or DWR in our regional office at 252-946-6481. Sincerely, r �- Samir Dumpor, PE Regional Engineer Land Quality Section cc w/o enc: William Bryan Adams, Adams Homes AEC, LLC . (email) Bobby Billingsley, Thomas Engineering, P.A. (email) WaRO Division of Water Resources (email) The developer is responsible for the control of sediment on -site. If the approved erosion and sedimentation control measures prove insufficient, the developer must take those additional steps necessary to stop sediment from leaving this site (NCGS 113A-57(3)). Each sediment storage device must be inspected after each storm event (NCGS 113A- 54.1(e)). Maintenance and/or clean out is necessary anytime the device is at 50% capacity. All sediment storage measures will remain on site and functional until all grading and final landscaping of the project is complete (15A NCAC 04B .0113). 2. The developer is responsible for obtaining all permits and approvals necessary for the development of this project prior to the commencement of this land disturbing activity. This could include our agency's Stormwater regulations and the Division of Water Resources' enforcement requirements within Section 401 of the Clean Water Act, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' jurisdiction of Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, the Division of Coastal Management's CAMA requirements, the Division of Solid Waste Management's landfill regulations, the Environmental Protection Agency and/or The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers jurisdiction of the Clean Water Act, local County or Municipalities' ordinances, or others that may be required. This approval cannot supersede any other permit or approval. 3. Adequate and appropriate measures must be properly installed downstream, within the limits of disturbance, of any land disturbing activity to prevent sediment from leaving the limits of disturbance, entering existing drainage systems, impacting an on -site natural watercourse or adjoining property.

LAND QUALITY SECTION ATTN: James Edwards 943 WASHINGTON SQUARE MALL WASHINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA 27889 james.edwards@ncdenr.gov Construction Stormwater Permit E� NCGO10000 Permit Fact Sheet The NC Construction Stormwater General Permit (also known as "NCG01") applies to construction sites that disturb one acre or more of land, or that are part of a common plan of development that will cumulatively disturb that amount. Acronyms to Know COC: Certificate of Coverage, proof of coverage under the NCG01 permit DEMLR: NC Division of Energy, Mineral, and Land Resources E&SC: Erosion & Sedimentation Control e-NOI: Notice of Intent, electronic application form for the NCG01 permit e-NOT: Notice of Termination, electronic form for closing out the NCG01 permit The Permitting Process Submit an NCG01 e-NOI once you have received the E&SC plan approval from either a DEMLR Regional Office or a delegated local E&SC program. The e-NOI is available at deq.nc.gov/NCG01. Instructions for completing the a-NOI can be found in the same website section. 2. Once an a-NOI is submitted, an email confirming receipt is sent. DEMLR then reviews the submission. a. If there are errors, DEMLR will reject the e-NOI, and the applicant will receive an email outlining the needed corrections. The applicant must then submit a new a-NOI. b. If all information provided is correct, the applicant will receive an email with payment instructions. The fastest way to pay the initial $100 annual permit fee (and all future fees) is to pay electronically using the ePayments website: deg.nc.gov/SW-epayments. 3. Once the annual fee payment is applied, the COC is issued and delivered via email. As long as the COC is active, the permittee will be invoiced annually for the $100 fee. Required Documentation for a-NOI Submission a) Site location map • This map needs to show the project location in enough detail that DEMLR can verify the location. Helpful tools are Google Maps and the GIS database of the county where the project is located. b) Completed Financial Responsibility/Ownership (FRO) Form • The FRO Form clarifies who is financially responsible for the land -disturbing activity and should have been submitted to the same office that approved the E&SC plan. c) E&SC plan approval documentation • This is usually a formal letter but may also be an email or grading permit, depending on the program that approved the plan. d) Completed NOI Certification Form • This form is hyperlinked in Part D of the a-NOI and is also available at deg.nc.gov/NCG01. Options for Covering Homebuiiding Lots & Development Phases For home lots and different types of phased development, COCs may be issued on a "per contiguous project, per owner" basis. For more information, please go to deg.nc.gov/NCG01. What happens to the COC when the construction activity is complete? When a project is complete, the permittee must contact DEMLR or the delegated local program to close the E&SC plan. Once staff determine the project site to be permanently stabilized, they will issue E&SC plan close-out documentation, which could be in the form of an inspection report or a certificate of completion. The permittee must visit deq.nc.gov/NCG01 to submit an a -NOT with the close-out documentation. This is a very important step to complete so that annual fee invoicing does not continue.
