Welcome to Clean Water Matters NC

With the recent influx of threats to clean water on a state and federal level, Cape Fear River Watch has launched this initiative called Clean Water Matters NC to ensure Cape Fear River Watchers like you have all the information you need to continue to advocate for the restoration and protection of your river.

This initiative primarily focuses on four issues:

  1. Industrial pollution – from GenX (and other emerging contaminants), and from industrial farms (CAFOs)
  2. Attempts to dismantle the federal Clean Water Act
  3. The effort to reclassify a portion of the Cape Fear River as a Swamp
  4. State legislation relating to water quality

We publish at least one post per week on these topics and encourage you to follow along so you can remain informed on the threats to clean water in the Cape Fear River Basin.
