Abstract:
PSC Phosphate, Inc., has applied to the Army Corps of Engineers for a Clean Water Act Section 404 permit to impact and fill wetlands and waters of the state for the purpose of continuing their mining operations along South Creek in eastern Beaufort County. A similar grant that allowed the company to impact over 1,200 acres of wetlands in 1997 resulted in the largest permitted destruction of wetlands in the history of the state. If the new permit is granted, the Pamlico River basin would lose 2,500 acres of high-quality wetlands.

Abstract:
In August 2005, the Pamlico-Tar River Foundation and Clean Water for North Carolina, representing downstream residents, challenged a state issued Special Order of Consent (SOC) for the city of 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. Jacobs discusses the background of the case, its settlement, present conditions in Oxford, and plans for the future.
