N.C. COASTAL RESOURCES COMMISSION STEERING COMMITTEE WILL MEETON TERMINAL GROIN FEASIBILITY STUDY

RALEIGH – The N.C. Coastal Resources Commission terminal groin study steering committee will meet Feb. 15 to develop draft recommendations based on a study of the feasibility and advisability of terminal groin use as an erosion control device in coastal North Carolina.

The meeting will be from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Feb. 15 in the Soil and Water auditorium at the N.C. Cooperative Extension Office, 300 Industrial Drive, New Bern. The meeting is open to the public.

The steering committee consists of five members of the Coastal Resources Commission and five members of the Coastal Resources Advisory Council. The steering committee will present its draft recommendations to the full CRC at a meeting in Wilmington on Feb. 17.

A terminal groin is a long, low structure, typically made of rock or concrete, which extends out into the ocean at the end of an island, and is intended to trap sand and prevent beach erosion. 

The study was mandated by Session Law 2009-479, which requires the CRC to conduct the study and present a report to the Environmental Review Commission and General Assembly by April 1.
