  • The State of North Carolina recently introduced three new mapping tools to check on the status of your local waterway:

  • Map of Impaired Waters in the NC Section of the Catawba Basin in 2012 - This map can be used to not only find the overall integrated report rating for a stream but click through the arrows on the pop-up window (top right) and you will find the rating and information for each parameter that stream was monitored for.  The 2014 Integrated Report map will be coming shortly. When looking at the impaired waters map, it is important to remember that actually 100% of the water is impaired in the basin because there are fish advisories for mercury levels in certain species of fish throughout the basin.

The NC General Assembly is proposing to gut the law (SEPA) that requires consideration of environmental costs and benefits when public money is spent or public land is used.
