This is the webpage for the Environmental Sciences Section of the North Carolina Division of Water Quality (DWQ), which provides the DWQ with scientific and technical support required to regulate and manage water quality throughout North Carolina. The four units and two teams of the Section, comprised of biologists, environmental specialists, and technical support staff, evaluate the state's aquatic resources through a variety of specialized biological, chemical, and physical techniques. Links to program units including aquatic toxicology, biological assessment and ecosystems are provided as well as access to reports/publications, information about fish kills and access to surface water quality monitoring information.
