These snakes are usually found near the water, in the woods.

Pollution in the Catawba River Basin
Point source pollution: The most common problem for point source pollution is the sewage. The sewage reduces available oxygen in the water which causes danger in the wildlife in and around the water. Another common problem is coal ash. Coal ash gets in the water causing the water to be undrinkable and not safe for the animals. The legislation is currently removing the coal ash from 4/14 locations, creating the coal ash management commission.
