||In 1988 the Division of Environmental Management (DEM) began an expanded ambient water quality monitoring program in the Albemarle-Pamlico study area. The report summarizes the water quality information for the Tar-Pamlico, Neuse, Roanoke, Chowan and Pasquotank river basins. When reviewing these results, it should be kept in mind that while the lower Pamlico and Neuse rivers are similar physically and hydrologically, the other basins in the Albemarle-Pamlico area have different salinity regimes and smaller drainage areas, and so can function in ways different from the Tar-Pamlico and Neuse. In the Neuse River basin, the productive phytoplankton community in the lower estuary is reflected in the elevated pH values, supersaturated dissolved oxygen conditions, and elevated chlorophyll-a values.
