15A NCAC 07H .0602 POLLUTION OF WATERS
No development shall be allowed in any AEC which would have a substantial likelihood of causing pollution of the waters of the state in which shellfishing is an existing use to the extent that such waters would be officially closed to the taking of shellfish. This rule shall also apply to development adjacent to or within closed shellfish waters when a use attainability study of those waters documents the presence of a significant shellfish resource in an area that could be expected to be opened for shellfishing given reasonable efforts to control the existing sources of pollution.
