N.C. Senate passes Jordan Lake Rules

Posted by on Wed, Jun 17, 2009 at 5:31 PM

Update (6/19/09): The House chamber will vote on Monday, June 22, whether to approve the Senate's technical changes to HB 239--the final vote required before the bill is presented to the Governor for approval. The House previously voted 106-8 to approve a similar version of the bill.

Today, the N.C. Senate approved House Bill 239 (also known as "Restore Water Quality in Jordan Reservoir"), which would allow a state-mandated pollution-reduction program for Jordan Lake to go forward, while curtailing some of its reach. A critical drinking-water source for the region, Jordan Lake has been on the EPA's Impaired Waters list since 2002, due to pollution from development. (For more background, see the "Jodan Lake rules" tag on Triangulator.) The House previously approved a similar version; the bill is headed there for a final vote, in order to approve technical changes to the bill's language, before ratification.
