The Upper Neuse Watershed (HUC 03020201) is located in central North Carolina and covers approximately 1,050 square miles. It is characterized by a humid subtropical climate with hot summers and mild winters. The watershed is fed by several small streams, including the Eno and Flat rivers, and is home to several reservoirs, including Falls Lake and Jordan Lake. These reservoirs serve as sources of drinking water, recreation, and habitat for aquatic species. The watershed is also prone to flooding due to heavy rainfall events. In recent years, the area has experienced more frequent and severe rainfall events, leading to increased flood risk. Snowfall is relatively rare in this region, but when it does occur, it can lead to disruption of transportation and other activities. The Upper Neuse Watershed is an important ecological and economic resource for central North Carolina.
