 An overview of the Lost River watershed finds poultry houses widely distributed throughout the basin, with considerable row crop (mostly corn) in the floodplain.

In the North River watershed,  the relatively few poultry houses are clustered in the headwaters region and the lower reaches.  Little row crop is present in this basin.
