WILMINGTON, N.C. --
WILMINGTON, N.C. - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Wilmington District and the Town of Holden Beach will host a Feasibility Cost Sharing Agreement signing ceremony, Friday August 27, 2021 at 1:30pm at the picnic shelter across the street from Town Hall, located at 119 Davis St, Holden Beach, NC.
This signing begins the Holden Beach Coastal Storm Risk Management General Reevaluation study. The study area is in the Town of Holden Beach, in southeastern North Carolina Brunswick County, about 35 miles southeast of Wilmington, NC.
Holden Beach suffers from erosion, waves, and inundation due to coastal storms that causes damage to structures and risks to life and property. This feasibility study will determine whether a plan to manage coastal storm risks for the project area for up to 50 years is in the federal interest.
The town occupies an 8-mile-long barrier island on the Atlantic Ocean, bounded by Shallotte Inlet to the west, Lockwood’s Folly Inlet to the east, and the Intracoastal Waterway to the north.
