To increase the availability of municipal and industrial water supplies, the State of North Carolina requested the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to designate 32.62 percent of the Jordan Lake conservation storage, between the elevations 202 mean sea level (msl) and 216 msl, as water supply storage.

The State, acting through the Environmental Management Commission, will assign to local governments having a need for water supply capacity any interest held by the State in such storage, with proportional payment by the user to the State for the state's associated capital, interest, administrative and operating costs.

Upon signing the water supply storage contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Commission will apply the following procedures in allocating Jordan Lake water supply storage.
