N.C. Water Supply Protection Program Provides Protection Mechanism, Technical Assistance

Record #:
North Carolina communities are acting to protect the streams and reservoirs they rely on for drinking water by requesting reclassification of their water supplies under the North Carolina Water Supply Protection Program. The new system has three water supply classes defined by the amount and types of permitted wastewater discharges and requirements for nonpoint source controls in the watershed. Various departments of State government are offering technical assistance, and land use and economic information.
