3 Land Area & Density Alamance County has a total land area of approximately 435 square miles, of which 10.8 square miles is water. Three lakes Lake Cammack, Lake Mackintosh, and Graham-Mebane Lake serve as water reservoirs for county residents. To protect these water resources, six watersheds encompassing approximately 108 square miles limit the scale and type of development in these areas. The Haw River is the largest river, but there are also numerous creeks, streams, and ponds throughout the county. The municipalities cover an area of 52 square miles and their extraterritorial jurisdictions, where the municipalities zoning authority extends to, cover another 48 square miles. Approximately 334 square miles are located within the county s planning jurisdiction. 1 Population Density The population density in Alamance County as a whole is 355 persons per square mile. Faucette Township is the least dense at 87 persons per square mile, and Burlington Township is the most dense at 1,587 persons per square mile. Land Use A large portion of land in unincorporated Alamance County is used for agricultural purposes. Over 2,100 parcels in the unincorporated areas of the county are classified as farms, equaling approximately 155 square miles. Another 61 square miles are classified as vacant. 2 1 Land area calculations from GIS and the 2012 U.S. Gazetteer. 2 Land use classifications from the Alamance County Tax Department 2014 Community Profile 2

While the majority (60%) of residents moved in the last twelve years, one-fifth of Alamance County residents have not moved in over twenty years.
