Section: Statutes containing references to proceedings under former prerogative writs
(1) In addition to, or in substitution for, the classifications of waters set forth in Articles VI and VII of this compact and the effluent standards made applicable thereto, the commission may develop and, after public hearing place in force other classifications of waters and effluent standards within the district. Such classifications shall be on the basis of present or intended uses of the waters in question and shall be accompanied by requirements governing the quality of effluents, receiving waters, or both, as the public interest may make appropriate.
Classifications, standards, and requirements adopted pursuant to this article shall be developed and may be revised with due consideration for uniformity of requirements relating to the quality of effluents and receiving waters within the same classification in all parts of the district.
Classifications made pursuant to this article shall be governed by and shall implement any water and related land resource plans, water use plans or pollution control plans adopted by appropriate agencies of the signatory states, acting singly or in concert, or through joint intergovernmental agencies. Any exercise of authority by the commission pursuant to this article shall be subject to any procedural requirements, if applicable, that may be contained in Federal law.
Nothing contained in this article shall be construed to abridge or limit any power otherwise existing of a signatory state to make and enforce classifications, standards, and requirements for effluents and receiving waters.
