Abstract:
Since the 1980s, Oxford, located in Granville County, has had trouble managing a compliant wastewater treatment facility. In 2000, the city was fined $100,000, the largest water quality fine in North Carolina to date, and required to enter into a consent judgment order to bring the facility back into compliance, which should have occurred by April 2002. Since 2001, the plant has violated its discharge permit more than seventy times. The Pamlico-Tar River Foundation and Clean Water for North Carolina, representing downstream residents, challenged a state issued Special Order of Consent (SOC) Oxford's wastewater treatment plant. This was the first appeal ever of this kind in the state. The two groups argued that the SOC failed to meet North Carolina's own regulations for dealing with chronic polluters.

Abstract:
Established in 1785, Morattock Church, located two miles from Plymouth, is the second oldest church in Washington County. This church, with a seating capacity of 200, burned in 1863, but this did not interrupt services. Parishioners met in the poorhouse until the current building was completed in 1865. As membership declined, the building was not maintained, and the final services were held in 1934 or 1935. In 1937, the roof caved in. Money was raised to replace it. The church was painted, and a plaque honoring all the preachers who had served there was installed. Since then, interest in the church has waned, and decay has again set in.
