How Population and Economic Trends May Affect Water Resources in North Carolina


Author(s):
Abstract:
The Senate Select Committee on Water Resources reported on how changes in the state's population and economy have strained water supply. Switch from agriculture to industry actually requires more water for the dilution of industrial waste and its use in steam-powered machinery. Also the move from a rural to more suburban population demands more water for sewage disposal. These trends demonstrate the greatest need for water resource management in more developed areas of the state such as the Research Triangle.
