 Tar-Pamlico River Basin

The Tar River originates in north central North Carolina in Person, Granville and Vance counties and flows southeasterly until it reaches tidal waters near Washington and becomes the Pamlico River and empties into the Pamlico Sound. The entire basin is classified as Nutrient Sensitive Waters (NSW).The Tar-Pamlico River Basin’s estimated developed area is ~7%, agriculture ~28%, and wetlands and forested areas ~55% (remaining 10% is open water) based on 2001 National Land Cover Data. Development and population growth center around Greenville, Rocky Mount and smaller municipalities within commuting distance to Raleigh, while other municipalities have experienced negative growth.
