White Oak River Basin

Location, Location, Location!
There are 194,802 people living there right now. There are 320 miles of rivers and streams connected to the basin.
Non Point and Point Source Pollution.
The point source pollution has been coming from 63 waste lagoons. We have been cleaning the water and watching what goes into it. There have been restrictions on waste plants that don't allow waste to be dumped into the river. We think that they should have a fine for if they dump any into the river. The fine, we think, should be at least $500 to start with and then slowly rise by $5.
Land, Aquatic and Plants
A carnivorous plant found around the river.
Many are found in this area.
Green Backed Heron
This is the main bird found around the area.
This is another carnivorous plant in the area.
This is a very rare animal found in the river basin.
Found in and around the river. There are shellfish farms around the river and this is what's been causing the pollution.
