Coastal Hazards Science Panel to Discuss Terminal Groins at Sept. 29 Meeting In Raleigh

RALEIGH – The state Science Panel on Coastal Hazards will meet Tuesday, Sept. 29, in Raleigh to discuss the N.C. Coastal Resources Commission’s study of the feasibility of terminal groins in coastal North Carolina.

The panel, which provides scientific advice to the Coastal Resources Commission, will meet at 9 a.m. in room AQ526 (Division of Air Quality Training Room) at 2728 Capital Blvd. The meeting is open to the public.

The CRC, in consultation with N.C. Division of Coastal Management, the N.C. Division of Land Resources and the N.C. Coastal Resources Advisory Council, is conducting a study of the feasibility and advisability of the use of terminal groins as erosion control devices. 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 the General Assembly by April 1, 2010.

The CRC has asked the Science Panel to serve as a peer review group for the study, which has been contracted to the engineering firm of Moffatt and Nichol. The panel will help to direct and finalize the scope of work associated with the CRC effort.

Created by the CRC in 1997, the 13-member Science Panel is composed of coastal engineers and geologists.
