Date: 2010-03-30
Type: Hearing
Name: Proposed Reclaimed Water Rule Revisions

WHERE: Asheville-Buncombe Technical College - Asheville Campus, Thomas W. Simpson Administrative Building, 340 Victoria Road, Asheville, N.C. 28801 WHEN: Registration begins at 6:30 p.m.; the hearing begins at 7 p.m. WHAT: During the 2008 session of the General Assembly, the state legislature determined that it is the public policy of the state to reuse treated wastewater or reclaimed water to aid in meeting the existing and future water supply needs of the state. Approved wastewater reuse programs can provide water for many beneficial uses that are both environmentally acceptable and protective of public health. In addition, the state directs the Environmental Management Commission to promote safe and beneficial use of treated wastewater as an alternative to wastewater discharges and to adopt rules to identify acceptable uses of reclaimed water, facilitate the permitting of reclaimed water systems, and establish standards for reclaimed water systems that are adequate to prevent the direct distribution of reclaimed water as potable water.
