SECTION .1200 ‑ PROTECTION OF FILTERED WATER SUPPLIES

 

15A NCAC 18C .1201       RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES

(a)  No recreational activities shall be permitted on a class I or class II reservoir without a resolution by the commission or without approval by the Department.  The Department may approve recreational events on a class I or class II reservoir which last one day or less upon a showing that the recreational event will not adversely affect the quality of the water to the point of rendering it unsuitable as a source for a public water system.  All other recreational activities on a class I or class II reservoir shall be permitted only upon a resolution by the commission authorizing the activity.

(b)  Upon request for such a resolution, the Division shall make or cause to be made a thorough investigation of the quality of the water to determine the extent to which the proposed recreational activities would adversely affect the quality of the water.  If, after such investigation, the Commission for Public Health is of the opinion that the proposed recreational activities will not adversely affect the quality of the water to the point of rendering it unsuitable as a source of public water system, the Commission for Public Health may adopt a resolution authorizing the proposed recreational activities.

(c)  Only those recreational activities specifically authorized in the resolution will be allowed.  No recreational activities shall be permitted within 50 yards of any public water system intake.
