WAT Projects and Reports

Watershed Assessment Team (WAT) Projects

The majority of projects performed by WAT include a summary of existing data, a study plan for monitoring to address data gaps within the watershed, and one or more reports summarizing findings. Most of these are incorporated into the documents produced by the NC Ecosystem Enhancement Program (EEP) during their Local Watershed Planning (LWP) process. Current and recent projects are listed below by major river basin.

Before the creation of the WAT and EEP programs, similar watershed assessments were performed by the Watershed Assessment and Restoration Program (WARP).  Reports from these projects are archived on the WARP Report Archive page.


Some of these documents are PDF files and require a PDF reader.
