Abstract:
Groundwater is North Carolina is becoming polluted and over consumed. Most of the counties east of I-95 are almost totally dependent on groundwater as a water source. Two sections, a fifteen-county area surrounding and including Greenville, and parts of Robeson, Bladen, and Columbus Counties, are pumping water faster than it can be replenished. The 2002 North Carolina General Assembly will consider regulations to deal with these problem areas.
