Upper Cape Fear Watershed Prioritization Project

About the Project

In this project, TJCOG partnered with the Piedmont Triad Regional Council to collect environmental, economic, and recreational data in North Carolina and preform a GIS-based watershed assessment of the Upper Cape Fear River Basin to determine priority watersheds for restoration and conservation. The final output of these efforts is a report and a website that synthesizes available data obtained from local, state and regional sources and presents watershed-based recommendations for more focused and immediate attention on both conservation and restoration priorities for the 12-digit hydrologic units (HUs) in the Upper Cape Fear River Basin.  For more information, contact Andrea Eilers via email at aeilers@tjcog.org or over the phone at 919.558.2705
