GIS Lookup: Detailed Data Layer Listing

Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Phase II Stormwater Reference Layer, North Carolina, 2008" (2009)
Description: The NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis collaborated with the NC Division of Water Quality to develop a geospatial representation of stormwater permitting responsibility across the state. This reference layer represents permitting (local, state, multiple, or none) based on Phase II stormwater legislation and rules as well as other state and local programs that have stormwater requirements. This dataset is based on the best available datasets as of the publication date. This dataset does not include the shoreline, instead using mapped boundaries of all of North Carolina's counties as a base layer. These data are intended to assist government agencies and their constituents in identifying which stormwater permitting requirements, if any, apply to a given location in North Carolina. This data set includes attributes relating to stormwater programs (nutrient management strategy areas/local governments, water supply watersheds, high quality and outstanding waters areas, etc.) and jurisdictions, including federally managed areas (e.g., military bases).
