Abstract:
At the request of the Town of Enfield, the North Carolina Division of Water Resources’ Water Supply Assistance Section recently conducted a study of water use in the Fishing Creek drainage area to determine if there is a need to regulate water use in the Tar River basin. The study finds that while existing wells do not produce large quantities of water, better location and construction could lead to higher well yields. Of greater significance is the occurrence of radioactive radon gas in the region’s groundwater.

Abstract:
In a study designed to support ongoing implementation of the Tar-Pamlico River Basin Nutrient Management Strategy and its nutrient trading program, scientists at the Center for Environmental Analysis at Research Triangle Institute suggest that targeting efforts to control agricultural nonpoint pollution at specific sources offers the best opportunities for reducing nutrient loading to the river. They suggest focusing on small land areas rather than whole counties or watersheds.
