Dillon Epp, Property Manager, looks over a gate on a freshwater site on the Orton Plantation properties in Brunswick County on July 18, 2012.  As part of the restoration of the building, grounds and properties, this water will eventually be a rice field.  The gate controls the flow of the freshwater out to the other side of the dike, right, which leads out to the Cape Fear River.  The river is considered salt water at this location.
