15A NCAC 02B .0106       CONSIDERATIONS/ASSIGNING CLASSIFICATIONS FOR PRIMARY RECREATION

In assigning the B or SB classification to waters intended for primary recreation, the Commission will take into consideration the relative proximity of sources of water pollution and will recognize the potential hazards involved in locating swimming areas close to sources of water pollution and will not assign this classification to waters in which such water pollution could result in a hazard to public health.  Discharges to waters classified as B or SB will meet the reliability requirements specified in 15A NCAC 2H .0124.  Discharges to waters where a primary recreational use is determined by the Director to be attainable will be required to meet water quality standards and reliability requirements to protect this use concurrently with reclassification efforts.
