Sample Instrument of Declarations and Covenants

The sample legal Instrument for the Declaration of Restrictions and Covenants has been posted to the DEP website.  Please follow the link to access the new form for Post Construction Stormwater Management systems. This form should be used by permittees when filing instruments and plans/record drawings with the recorder of deeds offices so that the recorder knows what to do with the instruments and how to file them.  Please note that applicants are instructed to attach certain items to the filing form for filing such as the instrument, record drawings, and other pertinent information.  Please note that there is no requirement for the district or DEP to check these forms before submission, they are strictly to ease and standardize the filing process at the recorder of deeds level.  The Recorder of Deeds Association will be passing along information to all of their constituents informing them of the form and its use concurrently.

Depending on your site, other agreements or instrument filings may be required. Examples are listed below.

Corrective Action Plan Guidance

Corrective Action Plans (CAPs) can be utilized when there is an unforeseen failure within a stormwater management system prior to the termination of an NPDES permit. Examples of this type of failure could include a lack of infiltration within a basin or raingarden. CAPs can also be developed if a project’s earth disturbance becomes larger than one acre without first obtaining an NPDES permit, and subsequently must comply with Chapter 102 regulations through an enforcement action. If you believe that you may need to develop a Corrective Action Plan for your site, please contact the BCCD office and make an appointment with the appropriate E&S Technician immediately.
