About the little river


The Little River is a tributary of the Neuse River in North Carolina, USA. The river is 65 miles long and has a watershed of 341 square miles. It has a long history of providing water for agricultural and industrial purposes, including powering mills and factories in the 19th century. The river flows through the city of Durham, where it is impounded by the Little River Dam to create the Little River Reservoir, which provides drinking water for the city. The river is also used for recreational purposes, including fishing and kayaking, and supports a variety of aquatic life, including smallmouth bass and bluegill. In recent years, concerns have been raised about pollution and water quality issues in the river.
