Cary-Apex_IBT_PublicHearing_PublicNoticeInterbasin Transfer Certificate Modification for the Towns of Apex, Cary and Morrisville, and Wake County (for RTP South) The North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR) will hold a public hearing to receive comments on the Towns of Apex, Cary and Morrisville, and Wake County (for RTP South) interbasin transfer (IBT) certificate modification request. The Towns of Apex, Cary and Morrisville, and Wake County (for RTP South) have requested a modification of their current IBT certificate for three purposes: • Modify the basis of their IBT certificate approved July 12, 2001 from a maximum day IBT calculation to IBT calculated as the daily average of a calendar month, per the changes to NC General Statute 143-215.22L based on Session Law 2013-388. • Include, at the request of the NCDENR Division of Water Resources, transfers to the Cape Fear River subbasin, so that the modified certificate addresses transfers from the Haw River subbasin to both the Neuse River basin and Cape Fear River subbasin. • Base the certificate term on a 30-year planning period, addressing the Towns’ and County’s IBT through 2045; resulting in a total of transfer of 33 mgd from the Haw River subbasin to the Neuse River basin and Cape Fear River subbasin on a daily average of a calendar month basis. The public hearing will start at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 7, 2015, at the Town of Apex Public Works, 105-B Upchurch St., Apex, NC 27502.
