A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT TO SUSPEND ENFORCEMENT OF THE FALLS LAKE RULES FOR TWO YEARS AND STUDY THE RULES' EFFICACY AND IMPACT ON LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, BUSINESS, AND INDUSTRY.
Prohibits the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and local governments in the Upper Neuse Watershed from enforcing any rules intended to allow the Falls of the Neuse reservoir to attain its classified uses, including specified rules. Requires DENR to study, and report to the Environmental Management Commission by January 15, 2015, concerning: (1) alternative methods of attaining classified uses in the Falls of the Neuse reservoir that would have less economic impact; and (2) trends in water quality in the reservoir based on water quality sampling between the effective date of the act and November 15, 2014, performed at the same sampling locations and using the same techniques as sampling performed during 2011 and 2012.
Effective when the act becomes law and expires on June 30, 2015.
