COASTAL HAZARDS SCIENCE PANEL TO DISCUSS TERMINAL GROINS AT DEC. 1 MEETING IN RALEIGH

RALEIGH – The state Science Panel on Coastal Hazards will meet Dec. 1 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 CRC, will meet at 10 a.m. at the N.C. State University’s McKimmon Center for Extension and Continuing Education, 1101 Gorman St., Raleigh. The meeting is open to the public.

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.

During this meeting, the science panel will discuss the methodology that will be used for major portions of the study, including an analysis of the effectiveness and impacts of terminal groins; potential environmental impacts; potential economic impacts; and the geologic framework of North Carolina inlets.

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 the study on the use of terminal groins as erosion control devices, as mandated by Session Law 2009-479.

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