SECTION .1100 ‑ POLICIES ON BENEFICIAL USE AND

AVAILABILITY OF MATERIALS RESULTING FROM THE EXCAVATION OR MAINTENANCE OF

NAVIGATIONAL CHANNELS

 

15A NCAC 07M .1101      DECLARATION OF GENERAL POLICY

Certain dredged material disposal practices may result in removal

of material important to the sediment budget of ocean and inlet beaches.  This

may, particularly over time, adversely impact important natural beach functions

especially during storm events and may increase long term erosion rates. 

Ongoing channel maintenance requirements throughout the coastal area also lead

to the need to construct new or expanded disposal sites as existing sites

fill.  This is a financially and environmentally costly undertaking.  In

addition, new sites for disposal are increasingly harder to find because of

competition from development interests for suitable sites.  Therefore, it is

the policy of the State of North Carolina that material resulting from the

excavation or maintenance of navigation channels be used in a beneficial way

wherever practicable.
