Description

Water quality standards; approval of permits and certifications. Requires an applicant for a natural gas transmission pipeline greater than 36 inches inside diameter to submit in the application a detailed erosion and sediment control plan and stormwater management plan subject to Department of Environmental Quality (the Department) review and approval. After receipt of such application, the bill directs the Department to issue a request for information about how the erosion and sediment control plan and stormwater management plan will address activities in or related to upland areas, and requires the applicant to respond. The bill directs the Department to consider such information in developing a draft certification or denial, and to take certain additional public notice steps. The bill prohibits the Department and the State Water Control Board from expressly waiving certification of a natural gas transmission pipeline of greater than 36 inches inside diameter under § 401 of the federal Clean Water Act and requires the Department or Board to act on any certification request within a reasonable period of time pursuant to federal law.
