Groundwater is presently serving a variety of important needs across North Carolina. The most critical importance of groundwater is serving scattered homes, farms, small residential developments and small communities. In eastern North Carolina, groundwater is either the major or the only water source.
North Carolina’s dispersed population pattern makes groundwater particularly important as a water supply for those who live far from city water systems. The Coastal Plain has several major aquifers which provide large and predictable supplies of quality groundwater. In the Piedmont and Mountain regions, the availability of groundwater is generally more limited and is highly variable.
