Friday Last Day to Comment on New River Reclassification Request

Objection Letters Could Trigger Legislative Review

Good article in today's High Country Press ...Note also the comments of Michael Williams following the article!

This Friday, September 30, is the final day to submit public comments on the requested reclassification of the South Fork of the New River to the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

The new surface water classification is the next step in the Town of Boone’s efforts to secure a permit to build a new 4-million-gallon-per-day raw water intake facility on the South Fork of the New River in the Brownwood area near Todd.

It was because of a chemical storage accident at their treatment plant, but Blowing Rock was fined for killing everything in the Middle Fork for several miles below its plant when they had a chemical spill. Will there be any treatment or storage done at the intake site?
