PSIP Description: 
Residents of North Carolina's eastern counties classify rivers as either "brownwater" or "blackwater." Brownwater rivers are those that begin in the mountains and Piedmont and transport silt and clay particles. Blackwater rivers are generally short, slow-moving rivers that emerge from pocossins in our eastern-most counties, and transport carry acidic, tea-colored water. Both types of rivers contribute to our culture and the rich biodiversity found in North Carolina.
