  • Greenville/Pitt County is centrally situated to
    serve the largest concentration
  • of population and industry in eastern
    North Carolina (nearly 3/4 million people
  • within a 45 mile radius)
  • A coastal location, protection by eastern
    mountains, and proximity to the Gulf Stream serve
    to moderate climate
  • Temperate climate makes shutdowns due to
    inclement weather rare and allows year-round
    outdoor recreation
  • Average daily maximum temperature 72F
  • Average daily minimum temperature 48F
  • Any snow accumulation melts quickly (temperature
    usually gets above freezing any day it goes below

Geography (Contd)
  • Pitt County, North Carolina is located on the
    U.S. Atlantic seaboard approximately midway
    between Boston, Massachusetts and Miami, Florida
    and within a day's drive of over one-half the
    nation's population. Many of the principal U.S.
    industrial markets such as Boston, New York,
    Pittsburgh, Chicago, Atlanta, Memphis, and Miami
    are within a two day's drive by truck.
    Additionally, the Pitt County/Greenville area
    offers an advantageous location for
    exporters/importers of either bulk or
    containerized freight, being equidistant from the
    three east coast ports of Norfolk-Hampton Roads,
    Wilmington, and Morehead City (see Transportation
    for greater detail).
  • Pitt County is situated in the central portion
    of the North Carolina Coastal Plain,
    approximately 90 miles east of the Research
    Triangle, 30 miles inland from coastal waters, 80
    miles from the Atlantic Ocean (the famous Outer
    Banks), and roughly 275 miles from the
    Appalachian Mountains (the Blue Ridge Parkway).
  • Greenville, the county seat and largest city, is
    centrally located within the County. Greenville
    is approximately 85 miles east of Raleigh, N.C.
    (the state Capital and eastern-most point of the
    Research Triangle), 163 miles south of Richmond,
    Virginia, and 115 miles north of Wilmington, N.C.
    (the State's major seaport).
  • Ideally situated within eastern North Carolina
    at the hub of a radiating highway network, the
    Pitt County/Greenville area is the logical point
    of distribution east of Raleigh. Nearly
    three-quarters of a million people (750,000)
    people live within a forty-five (45) mile radius
    of Pitt County in such industrialized cities as
    Rocky Mount, Tarboro, Wilson, Washington,
    Goldsboro, Kinston and New Bern. In-bound freight
    can be delivered via CSX Transportation and the
    Norfolk Southern Railway or over major four-lane
    highways (multi-lane divided highways run from
    Pitt County to all North Carolina borders). For
    distribution purposes, all of the major regional
    cities can be accessed directly via state/federal
    numbered highways, ensuring minimal transit
    times, safe driving conditions on wide pavement,
    and few, if any, weight or height restrictions.

    State of NC, please visit the NC Dept.of
    Transportation's website at www.dot.state.nc.us
    and click on State Travel Maps.

  • Topography
  • The Pitt County Area lies in the Atlantic
    Coastal Plain physiographic province and slopes
    gently to the east and southeast. Broad, flat
    interstream areas are the dominant topographic
    features marked topographic variations are
    lacking. Slopes generally are less than 4
    percent, except for breaks along the south side
    of the Tar River and its tributaries. Also, the
    area north of the Tar River slopes more gently
    than the southern section.
  • Areas north of the Tar River area generally are
    lower in elevation than that part south of the
    Tar. Elevations in the northern and southern
    parts range, respectively, from approximately 10
    to 50 feet and 10 to 75 feet above mean sea
    level. The highest elevations are encountered
    along the extreme western boundary of the county.
  • Streams are of sufficient abundance to provide
    good drainage. The Tar River and its tributaries
    drain most of the county, but tributaries of the
    Neuse River, Swift Creek, and Contentnea Creek
    drain all the southern and extreme western areas
    of the county, respectively.
  • Geology
  • Pitt County is underlaid by unconsolidated beds
    of sand, clay, and calcareous sediment. Inclined
    southeasterly at a rate slightly greater than the
    land's surface, the beds thicken as they near the
    coast and reach their greatest thickness
    offshore. For the most part, these beds were
    deposited in sea water as the sea advanced and
    retreated during the geologic development of the
    Atlantic Coastal Plain. To a much lesser extent,
    streams deposited layers of sediment which mixed
    with that deposited on the sea floor. About 750
    feet underneath the sedimentary cover underlying
    Greenville is a basement rock floor consisting of
    weathered granite, gneiss, schist, and slate.
    Load bearing capabilities of soils vary widely
    many areas of the county can support heavy
    industrial loads without the need for pilings.
    Soil boring tests are suggested. Preliminary test
    data is available for selected sites.
  • Underground aquifers in the region provide
    stable well yields of 250 gallons per minute up
    to 800 gallons per minute at depths of 350 feet
    to 550 feet. Average yields are 450 gpm.

Physiography (Contd)
  • Climate
  • Pitt County is in the warmest area of North
    Carolina due to its close proximity to the ocean
    and its low-lying topography. Greenville has an
    average daily maximum temperature of 72F and an
    average daily minimum of 48F. The average annual
    precipitation is 49.0 inches. A large part of the
    rainfall during the growing season (approximately
    220 freeze-free days between late March and early
    November) is due to thunderstorms and is quite
    variable between months, years, and localities.
    Winter rainfall is less variable. Frozen
    precipitation occurs nearly every winter, but
    accumulations are usually small and melt quickly.
    Wind speeds average about 8 miles per hour. The
    average relative humidity in midafternoon is
    about 50, falling from about 85 at sunrise.
    Cloudiness is variable with sunshine about
    one-half of the total daylight hours in winter
    and two-thirds of the total daylight hours in
    other seasons.

  • East Carolina University Student/Faculty
  • Each semester the faculty and students of the
    School of Music at East Carolina University
    perform a variety of concerts that are absolutely

    instruments. The music played at these concerts
    has been rehearsed and sometimes composed by the
    student. These talented students have mastered

    excellent performances.
