These rules state the standards for classification of water supply. Each stream in North Carolina has a classification based upon its designated uses. These rules provide the Environmental Management Commission a method of setting standards. The rules also establish the physical, chemical, and biological standards required to protect each stream class. Each stream in North Carolina has an index number based upon its river basin and location within that basin. The rules also list by basin and index number the classification for each stream.
