This report describes the water quality concerns facing North Carolina (U.S.) and identifies their sources and delivery pathways. It then describes how riparian buffers, controlled drainage, and stream modifications can mitigate these pollutants. It also describes the recommended BMPs for each of the physiographic regions present in North Carolina.
