15A NCAC 07J .0410       RESTORATION/MITIGATION

Any violation involving development which is inconsistent with guidelines for development within AECs (i.e., wetland fill, improper location of a structure, etc.) must be corrected by restoring the project site to pre‑development conditions upon notice by the Commission or its delegate that restoration is necessary to recover lost resources, or to prevent further resource damage.  Said notice will describe the extent of restoration necessary and a time for its completion.  Failure to act to complete the required restoration may be determined to constitute a separate violation, according to G.S. 113‑126(d)(2), subject to the foregoing penalties.  Any resources which cannot be recovered by restoration of the affected site shall be replaced in compliance with the goals of the Commission's mitigation policy.
