Catawba River Basin Highlights:
The Catawba River and the Wateree River form one river basin that begins in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina and flows through the Charlotte metropolitan area into Lake Wateree in South Carolina, where its name changes to the Wateree River. The Wateree River eventually joins with the Congaree River in Lake Marion.
The Catawba-Wateree River was originally home to the Catawba Indian Tribe, self-identified "people of the river" and the Wateree Tribe, whose name comes from a Catawban word meaning "to float on the water." Today the Catawba-Wateree basin is the home of approximately 2 million people.
The headwaters of the Catawba River extend from the slopes of Grandfather Mountain, near Blowing Rock to the mountains near Old Fort, North Carolina. The Catawba-Wateree River flows for 350 miles long from its headwaters to the confluence with the Congaree. The basin has approximately 3500 miles of waterways that flow through 14 counties in two states (North Carolina and South Carolina). There are eleven major lakes in the basin and the dams that form these lakes have a major impact on the flow of the river.
Today, most of the Catawba River is dammed. The largest "free flowing" section of the Catawba River is a 30-mile section of the river below Lake Wylie, which was recently designated as a South Carolina Scenic River. This section of the river includes the largest grove of Spider Lilies in the world (approximately 160 acres), as well as a historical canal, and it ends in Lake Wateree where the Catawba River joins the Wateree River. The Wateree River feeds Lake Wateree and then meanders for approximately 80 miles to Lake Marion. Most of the major tributaries of the Catawba River are truly free flowing and many of them (including Wilson Creek) have challenging sections of whitewater. One of the major tributaries of the Catawba is the Linville River as it flows through Linville Gorge, a National Wilderness Area.
