The Upper Coastal Plain region contains portions of 3 major river basins: the Roanoke River Basin (portions of Halifax and Northampton counties), the Tar-Pamlico River Basin (Nash, Edgecombe, and portions of Wilson and Halifax counties), and the Neuse River Basin (portion of Wilson county). These water resources provide water to many of the residents throughout the region.
The UCPCOG has partnered with the NC Department of Environmental Quality Division of Water Resources to raise awareness to the importance of improving water quality and implementing planning measures to conserve water resources. For information regarding watershed planning for your specific river basin or for questions concerning water quality, visit the NC DEQ Division of Water Resources.
