The Rebirth of the Chowan River Gives Hope for the Neuse

Record #:
The state's fight against excessive nutrient pollution of waterways began in the 1970s when the Chowan River experienced fish kills, fish disease, and algal blooms that covered over twenty miles of the river. The General Assembly passed the first nutrient discharge laws, and citizens became involved. Today the river has recovered.
