  1. Natural levees along the river are pronounced. A good portion of the rivers flow bypasses the main channel and flows into the Lyon Thoroughfare which goes into the Black River and then back to the main channel which splits again. The Cape Fear Lowlands are close to sea level. With any rise in sea level inundation of the wooded swamps could possibly create a shallow wooded esturary similar to the Chowan River arm of the Albemarle Sound.
