Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Partnership

 APNEP's River Basins

The Albemarle-Pamlico estuarine system is made up of six river basins that flow into the sounds. The Pasquotank, Chowan, and Roanoke basins utlimately flow into Albemarle Sound, while the Tar-Pamlico and Neuse empty directly into Pamlico Sound.  Rivers of the White Oak basin flow to the Albemarle-Pamlico estuary's southern sounds, including Core, Back, and Bogue.    Each river basin boasts unique and valuable natural resources.  The N.C. Office of Environmental Education maintains updated River Basin educational materials, which can be ordered here at no cost. This office also maintains River Basin materials online.  Choose the appropriate link below to learn about the river basins of the Albemarle-Pamlico estuarine system.
