Tuesday News: About those hogs…

TWO NC RIVERS ON TOP 10 MOST ENDANGERED LIST THANKS TO CAFOS: Two North Carolina rivers were ranked among the top 10 most endangered rivers in the country for the second year in a row when this year’s study was released early Tuesday morning. American Rivers ranked the Neuse and Cape Fear rivers the No. 7 most endangered because of the number of hog and chicken farms located in the rivers’ flood plains. Roughly 4 million North Carolinians get their drinking water from the rivers. The potential for damage was seen during Hurricane Matthew when more than 140 swine and poultry barns and a dozen open pits holding hog waste flooded.
