The Haw River Trail Memorandum of Understanding, signed by the Guilford County Board of Commissioners (April 10, 2006) and Rockingham County Board of Commissioners (March 16, 2006) prohibits wastewater treatment plants or development within 500 feet of the Haw River.

From the memorandum: "Whereas, the preservation of lands within the Trail Corridor would support the multiple goals of the Partners; therefore the width of the Trail Corridor for planning purposes should be a minimum of 500 feet from the top of the bank (1000' corridor) where possible. The proposed use of the Trail Corridor should be a balance of natural resource protection, recreation, water quality, historical and cultural preservation, view shed protection, and economic development. As much as possible, undisturbed natural vegetation within the Trail Corridor is preferred to meet the maximum of these goals.."
