Natural Resource Stewardship
The Kerr-Tar Regional Council of Governments (COG) works with partners on the state and local level to ensure the region’s resources are developed wisely.
The COG works with partners to assess water conditions and improve policies related to water quality, sewerage services and storm water run-off for the three river basins that flow through the region.
Three of five Kerr-Tar counties have been designated
as “non-attainment areas” by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency. The Kerr-Tar Regional Council of
Governments (COG) is working with local officials to
plan ways to reduce emissions and improve the region’s
air quality. The Kerr-Tar counties are part of the Triangle
Ozone Non-Attainment Area.
