As urban areas grow in size and population, they rely more heavily on surrounding rural areas for additional land and water resources. Such a situation has arisen in North Carolina's Chapel Hill-Carrboro area. In the last decade, the population of the area and the number of people served by the Orange Water and Sewer Authority (OWASA) have increased by 33 percent.
