Heron in Haw RiverThe Haw River begins in northeast Forsyth County and flows 110 miles to where it converges with the Deep River, 4.2 miles below the Jordan Lake Reservoir dam.  The Cape Fear River begins at this point.  Tributaries of the Haw River and Jordan Lake flow through Guilford, Rockingham, Caswell, Alamance, Orange, Chatham, Wake and Durham counties.  Almost one million people are part of this watershed.  Sedimentation, wastewater, agriculture, trash and suburban and urban runoff impair its waters.
