SECTION .0400 ‑ COASTAL WASTE TREATMENT DISPOSAL

 

15A NCAC 02H .0401       STATEMENT OF POLICY

It is hereby declared to be the policy of the Environmental Management Commission that all wastewater generated in the State of North Carolina shall be treated to such an extent as to insure the compliance with water quality standards promulgated by the Commission.  It is further the policy of the Commission that regional and area‑wide wastewater collection and treatment facilities shall be promoted to the fullest practicable extent. The Commission recognizes, however, that development of area‑wide and regional sewerage systems is not always in keeping with the demands for growth within the areas and that interim regulations are necessary to insure that water quality standards are not violated.  In keeping with this policy, the Commission adopts these Regulations of this Section.
