Surface Water Intakes

Download Link:
Abstract: The North Carolina Department of Environment, Health, and Natural Resources, Division of Water Quality, in cooperation with the NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis, developed the GIS data set, Surface Water Intakes to enhance planning, siting and impact analysis in areas directly affecting water supply intakes in North Carolina. The file enables users to identify point locations where communities draw raw water from a lake, river, or stream; treat it; and distribute treated water to residences and businesses in North Carolina. The original locations were developed by the DEHNR-Div of Environmental Health, Public Water Supply Branch in April of 1990. Locations have been altered, added and deleted by the Division of Water Quality who updates this file in accordance with the Water Supply Watersheds file. This file is updated as changes occur.
Purpose: This data was created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).
