The Little Tennessee
River Basin By ~ Katerina Marroquin
and Jordan Knedler Now, More On
the WILDERNESS Pollution Concerns,
and What Actions Are Taking Place Water Quality and Protection ~ Pollution Concerns Of Course, We are Taking Action Plant Life ~ The Wild Life Plant Life Cont. ~ Animal Life ~ Location ~ Counties and Cities ~ Main Tributaries ~ Just Some of the Basic Surroundings
and Information on the Little Tennessee The River Basin is located on the southwestern part
of North Carolina, along the border of Tennessee River Main Tributaries ~
Cullasaja River
Nantahala River
Tuckasegee River
Oconaluftee River
Cheoah River Counties Within Little Tennessee are Graham,
Swain, Jackson, Slyva, Cherokee, Clay, and the fastest-growing
county, Macon.

There are few major cities in the LT, due to the
many protected forests,streams, along with the reserved land for the Cherokee Indians.

A Few of them are Franklin, Lenoir, and Highlands. The Little Tennessee is FULL of wild life, mainly
aquatic species. With all the reserved land and rivers from conservation groups in NC, we have one of the most rarest or best habitats for animals, only found in this part of North Carolina. This basin actually helps endangered species populate in their forests or streams, to assist with the finding of a home, like the Appalachian elktoe. Again, some examples of plant found in the River Basin Along with the Animal life, plants are just as valued in this river basin. There are over 3,000 large and rare species found in the protected and undisturbed forests, like the Joyce Kilmer, Chattahoochee and Nantahala National Forest. These places keep many species protected, like the rare mountain camellia, or the impressive amount of virgin tulip populars in the JK National Forest. We are proud to say, that L.T. River Basin has one of the
best water health in all of N.C. As of now, 97% of the 2,700 rivers and streams in the river basin are rated as fully supported (as in kept in reserved areas or under conservation services for animal/plant species or such).

Yet, there are still some problems with the sediment in these rivers... Even not being near any major towns, there are still
some concerns in the river basin. One being with all the man-made dams and impact on land. It affects the water health, along with the many aquatic species in the rivers, not able to live in the changing waters (due to delicate body temperature). Also, the excessive sediment and erosion from poor development on nearby land affects the streams, again messing with the
quality of water. Last, we have the introduction of new non-native animal/plant species in the river basin, maybe bringing new types of disease or bacteria to the habitat. Even with all the problems (man or natural), we are still helping keep our place clean, for the wildlife and habitat and for any visitors to our river basin. First, we have many conservation groups, with help from the state funds, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services, N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, and donations, that join together to protect the basin, called the NeedMore Tract. Now, more thank 1/3 of the Little Tennessee River Basin is being managed under conservation, for protection of endangered species or for land (mainly forest and rivers within basin) Looking For The Right Basin
