N.C. COASTAL MANAGEMENT CONDUCTS SURVEY OF ESTUARINE SHORELINE STABILIZATION METHODS

BEAUFORT – The N.C. Coastal Reserve and the N.C. Division of Coastal Management are interested in coastal landowners’ input on estuarine shoreline stabilization methods.

The division is conducting a needs assessment survey to determine the public’s knowledge and perceptions of estuarine shoreline stabilization structures and the services they provide. The survey results will guide and inform educational programs and coastal policy.

If you own estuarine waterfront property, the state Division of Coastal Management would appreciate your input.  Please visit the N.C. Coastal Reserve Web site,www.nccoastalreserve.net, and follow the “estuarine shoreline stabilization survey” link to complete the survey. 

This needs assessment survey is part of a broader cooperative research project, “Sustainable estuarine shoreline stabilization: Research, education, and public policy in North Carolina,” which seeks to quantify ecosystem service tradeoffs as a consequence of habitat alteration and to develop an approach for evaluating ecological and socioeconomic costs and benefits of estuarine shoreline erosion and protection alternatives. 

The Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology awarded a grant to the N.C. National Estuarine Research Reserve and the NOAA Center for Coastal Fisheries and Habitat Research to examine the impact of vertical bulkheads on ecosystem services in sheltered coastlines.

Survey responses will be collected until Oct. 15, then the link will be deactivated and results compiled. The results will be made available on the reserve’s Web site.
