Central Coastal Plain Capacity Use Rules Delayed

Record #:
The North Carolina Division of Water Resources has been documenting declining water levels in the Central Coastal Plain Cretaceous aged aquifers (Upper Cape Fear, Black Creek and Peedee) since the late 1960s and has been discussing the problems of declining aquifer levels with users since 1993. A request for approval of Central Coastal Plain Capacity Use Area rules was delayed until December to allow for fine-tuning and improvements to the rule.
