      The CWWMG is a non‐profit corporation founded in to identify, fund, and manage projects that will enhance the capabilities of the Catawba‐Wateree River to provide water resources for human needs (e.g., water supply, power production, industry, agriculture, and commerce), while maintaining the river’s ecological health. The River Project was commissioned to undertake a study of groundwater and surface water interactions, monitor groundwater and to construct a digital groundwater model. The model and the data gathered will help to determine what options are available to us in designing a watershed-based project with multiple benefits on the 62 acres of.

      However, increased flows also can help to dilute concentrations of chemicals in ground water and surface water. The distribution of rainfall in the Santee Basin is fairly uniform except for very high precipitation in the Blue Ridge (South Carolina Water Resources Commission, ; fig. 2).

      The workshop is sponsored by the Catawba Wateree Water Management Group(CWWMG) and the Catawba Wateree Initiative (CWI). The CWWMG was formed in with this mission: To identify, fund, and manage projects that will help preserve, extend, and enhance the capabilities of the CatawbaWateree River Basin to provide water resources for human needs -. If the area is very flat, the canal distance may be too long to justify this simple river diversion system. River diversion using a weir. To avoid the problems caused by fluctuating water levels in a river, a weir can be built across the river. During periods of high river discharges, water will flow over the weir.

River Basin Explorer Map. The Catawba-Wateree River Basin is a large watershed with 5, square miles of waterways and more than two million people living in it. The Catawba-Wateree River, which flows from the mountains of North Carolina to the coastal plain of South Carolina, supplies drinking water for more than 2 million people and generates enough power for million homes.

The Catawba-Wateree Water Management Group (CWWMG) is a C-3 non-profit organization that heralds a mission: “to identify, fund, and manage projects that will help preserve, extend, and enhance the capabilities of the Catawba-Wateree River Basin to provide water resources for human needs while maintaining the ecological.

Protecting all miles of the Catawba-Wateree basin is the fundamental work of Catawba Riverkeeper. The challenge of this effort has been demonstrated repeatedly as the Catawba River has been named the most endangered river in the United States (American Rivers ) and the third most endangered in the Southeast United States (Southern Environmental Law Center ).

The Catawba-Wateree River. It's the water source for two million people. It supports a thriving economy where the demand for water is expected to double.

It generates enough power for million homes. It provides recreation, a diverse ecosystem, and an elevated quality of life to people in a nearly 5, square mile region. But our river's. After defining the terminology used in the surface water chapters, all shared surface water resources in the region are listed together with the list of chapters for Part I of the Inventory.

The section also explains why certain shared tributaries were covered in a single chapter and why an entire river network was dealt with in separate chapters. Establishing significant reductions in the amount of water transferred out of the Catawba River during drought conditions has enabled the Protect the Catawba Coalition and Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation, Inc.

to reach an agreement with the cities of Concord and Kannapolis to resolve the appeal of the Interbasin Transfer (IBT) granted Concord and Kannapolis by the State of North Carolina.

The Catawba River becomes the Wateree River at the upper end of Lake Wateree, which extends into Fairfield and Lancaster counties in South Carolina.

5. Surface Water Availability - David Baize, DHEC Bureau of Water, Assistant Bureau Chief Mr. Baize noted that SC needed information on the quantity of surface water in the State. South Carolina has some permitting now related to surface water use, but we need an overall assessment of the resource.As part of Duke Energy’s Catawba-Wateree hydro relicensing process, a partnership was created to address large water users.

This group developed the low inflow protocol (LIP) to establish procedures for reductions in water use during periods of low inflow to the Catawba-Wateree basin.The Catawba River Basin Water Resources Plan evaluates the present and future ( through ) conditions of this basin, in order to determine the water capacity of the Catawba River to serve future populations and at the same time to identify any potential trouble-spots or conflicts related to water supply and its demand.
