WHY WATER?

One of the most effective ways to protect drinking water sources is to protect the land around them. How do we stop pollution from reaching the streams, rivers and reservoirs that provide our drinking water? Land trusts work with landowners, state and local governments, and other conservation organizations to protect drinking water sources across North Carolina.

In the Piedmont, one of the most effective efforts is the Upper Neuse Clean Water Initiative. CTNC coordinates this partnership of nonprofit organizations and local governments that seeks to protect the lands most critical for ensuring the long-term health of drinking water supplies in the Upper Neuse River Basin. The Upper Neuse basin contains nine public drinking water reservoirs that together serve more than 600,000 people in Wake, Durham, Orange, Granville, Franklin, and Person counties.

As more land is developed and the watershed’s forest cover continues to shrink, water quality will suffer. That’s why it is critical to conserve intact natural areas along streams now.

We thank you for your generous support of land trusts and our efforts to conserve Raleigh’s clean drinking water. Learn more here.
