Cedar River Watershed Survey Results

Recent floods have caused billions of dollars in damages in the Cedar River watershed. While these floods spurred local collaborative efforts (e.g., the Cedar River Watershed Coalition) to address flood recovery and mitigation in the watershed, as memories of the flood fade it will become harder to achieve real and effective results. The challenge now is to determine how to translate these watershed-wide efforts into successful projects that provide flood protection and conservation benefits for your community.

The Environmental Law Institute and the University of North Carolina, in collaboration with a Cedar River Watershed Working Group, are inviting residents of the watershed to help us understand the main challenges facing the Cedar River Watershed and identify and prioritize projects to address these challenges.  Responses to the survey will help us determine how to motivate people and organizations in the watershed to become more involved and invested in efforts to improve the overall health of the watershed.
