River Summary: The Neuse River is a major river in North Carolina that stretches for approximately 275 miles from its source in the Piedmont region to Pamlico Sound. The river played a significant role in the state's history, serving as a trading route for Native Americans and early settlers. The Neuse River is home to several reservoirs and dams that provide hydroelectric power and flood control, including Falls Lake and Jordan Lake. The river also supports a variety of recreational activities, such as fishing, boating, and wildlife watching, and is an important source of water for agriculture and drinking water for local communities. However, the Neuse River has also faced environmental challenges, including pollution and algae blooms that have threatened its ecological health.
