delineated as the Central Coastal Plain Capacity Use Area: Beaufort, Carteret,

that the use of ground water requires coordination and limited regulation in

this delineated area for protection of the public interest.  The intent of this

designated area and to allow the use of ground water for beneficial uses at

rates which do not exceed the recharge rate of the aquifers within the

designated area.
