Explore Your River Basin

PTRC River BasinsIf you live in a Stormwater SMART community, you live in either the Cape Fear River Basin, the Yadkin River Basin, or the Roanoke River Basin. A river basin is simply another term for watershed.


A watershed is an area of land that drains into a specific site.  Think of it as a connecting the highest points in a region.  Precipitation falling inside this is carried by small streams or tributaries to our rivers and lakes.  Everything that happens upstream affects water quality for all communities downstream. 


We're working on our own version of an interactive map, but in the meantime, learn more about your river basin by using this great interactive map from the North Carolina Department of Environmental Education.
