Economic benefits of improved water quality: a case study of North Carolina's Tar-Pamlico River



Economic benefits of improved water quality: a case study of North Carolina's Tar-Pamlico River



Rivers 3(3): 170-178



The article uses the contingent valuation survey method to measure the economic benefits of best management practices (BMP) used to reduce agricultural non-point source pollution. It focuses on the Tar-Pamlico River in North Carolina, USA where agricultural non-point source pollution is problematic, reducing surface water quality which diminishes recreational enjoyment in fishing, swimming, boating and other activities.
