Who Are We?

The UNRBA is a science-based partnership of six municipalities, six counties, six local soil and water conservation districts, and a regional water and sewer authority. Since 1990, we have been dedicated to providing a forum for considering and promoting innovative approaches to water quality planning and management in the Upper Neuse River Basin’s 770-square-mile watershed.
