Inlet Management Study

The N.C. Coastal Resources Commission held a series of public meetings in March and April to hear from local government officials, citizens, and stakeholders about specific concerns related to the management of ocean inlets in North Carolina. The meetings were held in Buxton, Beaufort, Ocean Isle Beach and Wilmington.

These regional meetings are part of a new, comprehensive review of inlet management in the state by the CRC to more fully understand and respond to issues confronted by local governments and stakeholders in these dynamic areas. The commission is particularly interested in receiving input on inlet dredging issues, channel realignment projects, development standards for inlet areas, emergency measures such as beach bulldozing and sandbags, erosion rates in inlet areas, and terminal groins.

Information and public input from the meetings will be compiled by DCM staff and used to develop preliminary recommendations for the CRC to consider. 

Written comments about the study may be sent through April 15 to Matt Slagel, 400 Commerce Ave. Morehead City, N.C., 28557, or via email to matthew.slagel@ncdenr.gov.
