Since July 1998, the Middle Cape Fear River Basin Association has monitored the Cape Fear watershed from the confluence of the Haw and Deep Rivers to Lock and Dam One. Today the association monitors thirty-five stations monthly for water quality parameters such as dissolved oxygen, fecal coliform, and chlorophyll a. The monitoring plan can be found in the association’s Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with DWQ.
The MCFRBA have helped expand water quality knowledge within the watershed through supporting academic research and conducting studies on fecal coliform and low level metals.
