Public Invited To Comment On Changes To Water Resources Rules

N.C. Department of Environmental Quality
Donald R. van der Vaart, Secretary

RALEIGH, N.C. – State officials are seeking public input on proposed changes to two sets of rules that protect water quality.

The first set of rules regulate waste that is not discharged to surface waters, such as sewer line extensions, wastewater irrigation and infiltration systems, animal waste management systems, and pump and haul systems. The second set of rules apply to the use and distribution of reclaimed water.

The proposed changes are part of the ongoing review of all state environmental regulations as mandated by legislation passed by the General Assembly in 2013.
