Downriver: Scientists Assess Post-Floyd Water Quality

Record #:
Two major hurricanes, Dennis and Floyd, ravaged Eastern Carolina in 1999. While damage to man-made structures can be quickly assessed, damage to the environment over the long- term remains unknown. Early assessments reveal a drop in the oxygen content of the Neuse and other rivers, which can cause fish kills. Also observable is the large amount of freshwater that had flowed into the Pamlico and Core sounds, which promotes the growth of freshwater algae.
