The Upper Cape Fear River Basin Association (UCFRBA) is a coalition of local governments and private industries in the upper reaches of the Cape Fear River basin who rely upon the resources of the river.  This 501(c)3 non-profit organization was created in February 2000 in parallel with similar organizations representing the large water users in the Middle Cape Fear and Lower Cape Fear River Basins. 


The UCFRBA provides water quality monitoring and leads projects to improve water use and water quality management of the Deep River, Haw River, and New Hope Creek subbasins of the river, as well as to satisfy federal NPDES wastewater discharge permits. The UCFRBA also serves as an ongoing forum for interested parties to work together on water resources planning, management and protection issues.
