GIS Lookup: Detailed Data Layer Listing

Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Water Supply Watersheds" (2007)
Description: The North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Division of Water Quality, in cooperation with the NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis, developed the digital Water Supply Watersheds data to enhance planning, siting and impact analysis in areas directly affecting water supply intakes. This file outlines the extent of protected and critical areas and stream classifications for areas around water supply watersheds in which development directly affects a water supply intake. This file enables users to identify the areas which have special restrictions for building and development based on water supply intakes. This file is updated as changes occur. This data was created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).
