    Sec. 16.1-11.1. State agency projects.
     
    (a) A state agency shall not undertake a project involving a land-disturbing activity unless (i) the state agency has submitted annual specifications for its conduct of land-disturbing activities which have been reviewed and approved by the State Department of Conservation and Recreation as being consistent with the state program or (ii) the state agency has submitted a conservation plan for the project which has been reviewed and approved by the department.
     
    (b) The department shall not approve a conservation plan submitted by a federal or state agency for a project involving a land-disturbing activity (i) in any locality which has not adopted a local program with more stringent regulations than those of the state program or (ii) in multiple jurisdictions with separate local programs, unless the conservation plan is consistent with the requirements of the state program.
     
    (c) The department shall not approve a conservation plan submitted by a federal or state agency for a project involving a land-disturbing activity in one locality with a local program with more stringent regulations than those of the state program unless the conservation plan is consistent with the requirements of the local program.

    (e) As on-site changes occur, the state agency shall submit changes in a conservation plan to the department.
     
    (f) The state agency responsible for the land-disturbing activity shall ensure compliance with the approved plan or specifications. (Ord. No. O-09-121, 10-13-09)
