The North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service is cooperating with other agencies in a variety of watershed projects spanning all three physiographic regions of the state. The purpose of these projects is threefold: 1) document and characterize water quality at a watershed scale; 2) identify nonpoint sources of pollution; and, 3) evaluate the effectiveness of best management practices used to prevent or treat nonpoint source pollution. Each project consists of pre and post BMP water quality monitoring, BMP implementation, and a variety of educational programs. Special emphasis is placed on the use of natural systems to treat nonpoint source pollution.
