This site provides information about the Cape Fear River Basin Study. If you have visited here before, you may want to take a look at What's New first.
Purpose of the Study
The State of North Carolina does not have a tool to evaluate the basinwide impacts of either existing or proposed future water uses in the Cape Fear River Basin. The Division of Water Resources (DWR) and local stakeholders have commissioned a study to develop a hydrologic simulation model for the basin. The stakeholders include the counties and municipalities within the basin. The model will include the entire watershed from the headwaters down to Lock and Dam #1 near Wilmington. Below this point the Cape Fear is influenced by the tide from the Atlantic Ocean. The estuary below L&D #1 is outside the scope of the study.
Planned Uses for the Model

The most recent changes are listed first, and each item is linked to the page with the updated content.
