NC Sierra Club Statement on Effort to Repeal Jordan Lake Rules

 

RALEIGH - Earlier today the Senate Agriculture, Environment & Natural Resources Committee approved a PCS for S 515 that repeals rules intended to clean up Jordan Lake, a drinking water supply for more than 300,000 people in the Triangle.

Upon the committee’s actions, Molly Diggins, state director of the NC Sierra Club, issued the following statement:

“This is the first time that the legislature has proposed repealing measures to clean up a troubled major drinking water source, with nothing to put in its place other than a commission of legislators to come up with a new plan.”

“There seems to be some magical thinking that legislators will find a technology that will clean up the lake without responsible parties upstream having to control their pollution into the lake.”
