Describe the River Basin.

It goes into these five places.

A) Blue Ridge Mountains

Pisgah National forest

Linville Falls

Lake James

Lake Norman

B) A non-point source solution is the sediments for storm water run-off. The sediments from construction run off through the water into the river basin. Next is muddy water. The muddy water clogs it up and makes it have issues to flow through.

C) A point source solution is the runoff of contaminants of eroded soil. It comes off fields and houses into the water. Human and animal wastes is another. The humans drop garbage, and animals use the bathroom, it falls into the water and such, clogging up the water flow process.

D) A solution to these issues is to make sure the construction workers you hire are good with practices to keep out water away from their work.

E) Keeping fertilizer, pesticides, and yard and animal waste out of the streets and storm drains.
