Public welcome to give feedback on flood resiliency for DEQ blueprint

WILMINGTON — A state agency is hosting three sessions for the public to provide input on a plan to mitigate impacts on communities from major storm events.

The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will host the sessions in June; it wants to hear from residents how flooding, flood mitigation, and resiliency impact North Carolina communities. 

The blueprint is part of a statewide initiative that will inform the creation of an online-decision support tool to help stay, county and municipal jurisdictions determine flood mitigation strategies, both equitably and transparently. It also will create a methodology to prioritize those strategies per future needs.

Information from the sessions will be beneficial to the blueprint’s creation, as will insight from more than 100 people from federal, state, county, municipal, and tribal governments, non-governmental organizations and universities. 

The sessions will take place the following days and areas, with Spanish interpretation services available:

June 1, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
New Bern, 203 S. Front St.

June 8, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Lumberton, 1702 West 5th Street

June 9, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Wilmington, 230 Government Center Dr.
