Understanding how regional-specific water resources respond to disturbances can serve as useful information to land managers as they aim to set flow targets needed to maintain ecological integrity in surface waters or to design riparian buffers for water quality protection. There are three distinct land provinces across North Carolina: the Mountains, Piedmont, and Coastal Plain. Population density, topography, and distribution of major forest landscapes are unique to each region, resulting in a range of different water resource needs and responses to land management practices.
