This report presents low-flow characteristics for selected streams in the Cape Fear River Basin of North Carolina. Low-flow statistics at streamgaging stations are summarized, and drainage area and low-flow discharge profiles for selected streams in the Cape Fear River Basin are presented. Descriptions of selected basin characteristics, such as impoundments, flow diversions (water-supply withdrawals and return point-source discharges), climate, geology, soils, and land use, are provided, including a discussion of their effects on low flows. This report also presents an inventory of sites in the study area where records of discharges and (or) stage have been collected as of the 1998 water year (table 6, p. 81-129); selected site attributes are listed for each site.
