Thank you to BASE members Matt Hanchey (Hunton & Williams) and Jim Spangler (Spangler Environmental) for serving on a panel with BASE staff at the North Carolina Beach Inlet and Waterway (NCBIWA) Annual Meeting at Wrightsville Beach. Full Lumina News coverage.
The panel gave an update on Waters of the United States to crowd of 200 from around coastal North Carolina. Mr. Hanchey provided background on the rulemaking and Mr. Spangler discussed the new provisions and their impact in the field. The discussion was especially timely as public comment on the proposed rule closed on November 14.
Stay tuned as BASE will provide immediate updates regarding this issue. In the meantime, please contact Senator Burr, Senator Hagan and Senator-elect Tillis and remind them of the importance of this issue to North Carolina’s economy and future.
