Where on U.S. 17 is the line between the Lumber and Cape Fear river basins?

The N.C. Department of Transportation’s standard practice is to place signs for all the river basins, said Brian Rick, department spokesman.

Nonetheless, there are some signs left over from the past where the water feature is named and the name of the river, creek, etc. has a sign, as well.

He added that without knowing the exact location, he cannot determine if the location is at the boundary for the Cape Fear River Basin.

To see the river basin boundaries, visit http://www.eenorthcarolina.org/riverbasins-interactive.html.

The map shows dividing line between the two river basins as crossing U.S. 17 just east of where Old Ocean Highway branches off.


Geologically speaking, how old is the Cape Fear River?

Why was the ‘Entering Lumber River Basin’ sign never replaced after it was taken down?
