Name: Proposed Reclassification of Southwest Creek
WHAT:The Division of Water Quality, on behalf of the Environmental Management Commission, wishes to receive comment on the proposed reclassification of a portion of Southwest Creek in the White Oak River basin in Onslow County from Class C to Class SC. Class C and Class SC (for freshwater and saltwater respectively) are the most common classifications in the state and are protective for secondary recreation, fishing, wildlife and aquatic life propagation and survival. Class C also protects for agriculture. WHERE:The proposed reclassification addresses the portion of the Southwest Creek main stem from approximately 0.5 mile upstream of Mill Run to New River - a distance of approximately 2 miles. Camp Lejeune land is adjacent to the proposed waters.
