Chowan River Basin
By: Trevor Banks and Blane Jacobs
What its like??
A non-point source can be storm drain that runs along side of the river. Another non-point source is oil, grease and toxic chemicals from urban runoffs. Factories are what is producing the oil and grease into the water.
A point source is the farmers way of irrigation is eroding the soil causing the soil to go into the river and make it dirtier. Also another one is discharges from a wastewater and a pipe going into the water, peoples waste from there house ruins into the sewer and the sewer runs into the river from a single pipe.
The black bear lives in the woods around the river basin and this is where he gets his food and water.
The bobcat is at the top of the food chain and eats all other animals that come around the basin.
The crayfish is the most known aquatic animal in the whole basin.
This organism is very very close to a clam.
Algae can be found all throughout the river basin.
These trees are spread all throughout the river and all around it as well.
