BURGAW- Contractors will begin clearing creeks and streams beginning Oct. 11 throughout Pender County.
“Workers will remove debris such as fallen trees and limbs from the waterways,” stated Daniel Adams, Pender County floodplain administrator. “Work will continue in the following months at 31 specific sites, including creeks and streams in Hampstead, Rocky Point, and Willard.”
This project is grant-funded through a state and federal cost-share program associated with Hurricane Florence Recovery, with money coming from the United States Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina Department of Agriculture.
“This project will assist in the management of potential flooding, which eventually impacts the farms and families of our county,” said Adams.
