For purposes of this chapter, a storm water management (SWM) permit for regulated activities as identified in § 155.030 is required before any earth changes commence. The SWM permit requirements are independent of any other regulations governing the proposed earth change, such as soil erosion regulations or zoning requirements, which may require additional permitting through other enforcing agencies. The granting of a SWM permit shall authorize only such earth changes for which the permit has been issued, and shall not be deemed to approve any development as a whole, or any other land use activities.
