The fee assessed shall be based on the total disturbed acreage of the site. In addition to the modification fee, modifications resulting in an increase in total disturbed acreage shall pay the difference in the actual initial permit fee paid and the permit fee that would have been applied for the total disturbed acreage in accordance with initial land-disturbing activity table above.
