2012 Permit requirement 2.4.2
A. If you previously received authorization to discharge for the current phase of your Project under the 2006 CGP, you shall be granted coverage under the 2012 general permit as long as your construction site complies with Section 3.1.1.F of the new permit. There will be no additional fees associated with an extension of coverage for existing sites under the new general permit. However, SCDHEC may, at its discretion, require an Applicant to confirm their intent to be covered under this new permit following its effective date. Should confirmation be requested and not provided within 30 calendar days from the date of the written request, coverage under the new general permit will be terminated. Should a site with terminated coverage be determined not to be finally stabilized or construction continues; the Owner/Operator must submit a new NOI, Comprehensive SWPPP, and all other required information, under Section 2.3 of this permit, along with appropriate fees. All construction activities must cease, except for those required to stabilize the site, until authorization to discharge may be granted.
B. All projects that received permit coverage under the 2006 CGP must modify their current SWPPP, as required by Section 3.1.1.F, and any SWPPP changes must be implemented no later than six (6) months following the effective date of the new permit.
C. For projects covered under the 2006 CGP, any individual or group that has signed a Co-permittee Agreement may continue to conduct work as a Co-permittee as long as the project’s coverage remains active and under the control of the operator to whom coverage was originally granted.

All SWPPPs associated with coverage approvals under the 2006 CGP, where coverage has not been terminated, will have to be updated in accordance with Section 3.1.1.F.I. Upon request, the Permittee shall make the updated SWPPP available for review by DHEC, MS4, or other local review entities. Any SWPPP changes must be implemented no later than six (6) months following the effective date of the new permit.
I. The SWPPP approved for coverage under the 2006 CGP, will have to be revised to meet the following requirements in order to come into compliance with this permit:
(a). 3.1.1.H.V.(h) – Record Keeping. An appendix must be added to the SWPPP to track the progress, compliance, modifications, and those associated with the construction site.
(b). 3.2.10 – Non-Numeric Effluent Limits. Site-specific procedures and information must be included within the C-SWPPP that addresses all applicable Non-Numeric Effluent Limits, which would not significantly impact the approved design (i.e., would not be considered a Major Modification per Section 3.1.7.C of this permit). This would include, but is not limited to, any addition/relocation of erosion control BMPs, changes to internal drainage patterns, limiting the amount of disturbed area allowed at any given time, minimizing steep slopes, enhancing the stabilization of steep slopes, preserving topsoil, minimization of exposed construction debris, and restricting the use of the additional prohibited discharges listed in Section 3.2.10.E of this permit.
(c). 4.2.B – Frequency of Site Inspections. All references to construction site inspection frequencies that are greater than once every calendar week must be revised to meet this weekly inspection requirement.
(d). 4.2.D - Rain Gauge. A rain log must be added as an appendix of the SWPPP.
(e). 4.2.H - Inspection Records. An inspection log must be added as an appendix of the SWPPP. 2012 SCDHEC Construction General Permit
