Neuse River on Another Undesirable List

Posted April 16, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— The Neuse River has shown up on a list compiled by a conservation group. The group says the Neuse is one of the nation's most polluted rivers.

The group known as American Rivers cites the Neuse's fish kills and sewage run-off as the problem. The group also cites pollution from 200 million gallons of raw human waste and sewage.

The river made the groups most-threatened rivers list last year and in 1995.
