Proposed rule readoption

The Division of Parks and Recreation is proposing to readopt without changes its rules on state natural and scenic rivers.

The Natural and Scenic Rivers Act of 1971 (G.S. 143B-135.140 through G.S. 143B-135.172) institutes a North Carolina natural and scenic rivers system and prescribes methods for inclusion of components to the system from time to time. At present, segments of four rivers have been designated as components of the system: the New River in Ashe and Alleghany counties; the Linville River in Avery and Burke counties; the Horsepasture River in Transylvania County; and the Lumber River in Hoke, Scotland, Robeson and Columbus counties.

The existing rules adequately describe criteria for designation and management of natural and scenic river areas, and no changes to the rules are proposed. The rules are submitted for readoption without changes.


Text of proposed rule readoption

07 NCAC 13F is proposed for readoption without changes.
