Water and Energy

In North Carolina, more than 80% of surface water withdrawals are used by power generation facilities. Our rivers and lakes face massive withdrawals, toxic pollution and hot discharges from coal-fired and nuclear power plants. Meanwhile, low-income and minority communities are often the MOST impacted by energy production and extraction facilities. Learn more about the efforts of CWFNC and others to keep these polluters in check, work with vulnerable communities, seek for solutions to energy demand (like energy efficiency!) and conserve water resources for other uses.
