PUBLIC COMMENT ON THE IBT or water transfer from Kerr Lake can still be made through April 30th. You may simply send an email with your views to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below are the three goals of the Kerr Lake area group, Preserve Our North Carolina Lakes Community and the message points that the group, the RRBA, KLPW, the Sierra Club and other groups all hope that citizens will use in their comments.
Your email should speak to the proposed Interbasin Transfer (IBT) Certificate for the Kerr Lake Regional Water System. NCDENR will be accepting comments regarding the proposed certificate through April 30, 2015. All comments received will be part of the public record, and will be included along with responses prepared by NCDENR as part of the Hearing Officer’s Report to the NC Environmental Management Commission.
The Environmental Management Commission is the decision-making body for the proposed IBT certificate. NCDENR anticipates the final determination will be made at the Environmental Management Commission’s July 9th meeting.
