Rules Propose to Ration Water from Two Eastern North Carolina Aquifers

Record #:
Fifteen counties, including Pitt, draw water from the Upper Cape Fear and Black Creek aquifers. The water is with- drawn faster then replacement is possible. Salt water is seeping in from the ocean, and the ground above the aquifers is becoming less porous. State and local governments, industry, business, and agriculture are meeting to develop regulations to save the already-depleted aquifers.
