Public meetings to discuss flooding research

Currituck is the subject of a research project being performed by a Duke University graduate student. A series of public meeting will be held to gather feedback from citizens about stormwater flooding concerns and history.

The meetings are scheduled as follows:

  • Jan. 25, 4:00 – 6:00 p.m., at Cooperative Extension
  • Feb. 1, 4:00 – 6:00 p.m., at Powell’s Point Senior Center
  • Feb. 8, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., at Corolla Library

*A community meeting scheduled for January 18, from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the Moyock Library to discuss flooding concerns was CANCELED due to weather and road conditions. A rescheduled date will be announced when it is available.

An important part of the study is a public survey which asks for citizens’ feedback about flooding history and perceived flood risks.  This study will continue until March 2018 and provide several benefits to Currituck County.  These include providing a record of areas impacted by flooding and understanding the community’s perception of local flooding. This information will be incorporated into future planning and managing of flood hazards in Currituck.

To participate in this study, please complete the brief online survey found at https://duke.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_87mgbTP5c0hxe3r
