If, however, the general permit modifications result in an increase in total disturbed acreage, the applicant shall pay the difference in the initial state permit fee paid and the permit fee that would have been due the state for the total disturbed acreage in table 1.

(c) The fees set forth in subsections (a) and (b) above, shall apply to:

(1) All persons seeking coverage under the general permit.

(2) All permittees who request modifications to or transfers of their existing registration statement for coverage under a general permit.

(3) Persons whose coverage under the general permit has been revoked shall apply to the department for an individual permit for discharges of stormwater from construction activities.

(4) Permit and permit coverage modification fees outlined under sections 37.1-37.2(a) and (b) may apply to each general permit holder.

(d) No general permit application fees will be assessed to:

(1) Permittees who request minor modifications to general permits as defined insection 37.1-35 of this chapter. Permit modifications at the request of the permittee resulting in changes to stormwater management plans that require additional review by the city manager, or designee, shall not be exempt pursuant to this section.

(2) Permittees whose general permits are modified or amended at the initiative of the department, excluding errors in the registration statement identified by the city manager, or designee, or errors related to the acreage of the site.

(e) All incomplete payments will be deemed as nonpayments, and the applicant shall be notified of any incomplete payments. Interest may be charged for late payments at the underpayment rate set forth in § 58.1-15 of the Code of Virginia and is calculated on a monthly basis at the applicable periodic rate. A ten (10) percent late payment fee shall be charged to any delinquent (over ninety (90) days past due) account. The city shall be entitled to all remedies available under the Code of Virginia in collecting any past due amount.
