*Summary*
It would be hard to match the damage done to the waters of the Neuse River by massive hog operations in the watershed, but if developers get their way, human sewage, stormwater runoff and habitat destruction could earn that dubious distinction. With sprawling coastal development creeping inland and urban growth in the headwaters, the Neuse is the new frontier for poorly planned development. The North Carolina Division of Water Quality must tackle the issue; otherwise human sewage, polluted runoff and other municipal pollution will soon present a problem as serious as runoff from factory hog operations.
