The members of the Lower Neuse Basin Association have monitored the Neuse River basin downstream of Falls Lake since December 1994. Currently the LNBA monitors forty-eight stations monthly for a variety of parameters including dissolved oxygen, fecal coliform, and nutrients. Details concerning monitoring can be found in the Memorandum of Agreement,.
The association, in cooperation with the Neuse River Compliance Association (NRCA), has actively supported nutrient management within the basin through monitoring agricultural watersheds, assisting in upgrading the nutrient removal systems at members’ wastewater treatment plants, and providing financial aid for academic research. Currently the association is working with DWQ and academic researchers in evaluating the effectiveness of the TMDL in reducing the nitrogen load to the Neuse estuary.
