  • SAW-2016-02091

    All interested parties are hereby advised that the Wilmington District, Corps of Engineers (Corps) has published a Notice of Intent (NOI) in the Federal Register to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Town of North Topsail Beach’s shoreline protection proposal to implement the New River Inlet Master Management Plan (NRIMMP) at the north end of North Topsail Beach, Onslow County, North Carolina. The plan includes the construction of a terminal groin on the southwest shoulder of New River Inlet and the placement of fill material along the Town’s oceanfront shoreline. This work is being proposed in conjunction with the Town’s existing May 27, 2011, Department of the Army (DA) authorization that allows maintenance dredging within a designated footprint of the inlet’s ebb tide channel. The current inlet management component, which has a permit expiration date of December 31, 2041, is being considered by the Town as a long-range strategy that may not provide significant north end protection for 15 to 20 years. As stated by the Town, the extreme severity of the erosional threat necessitates the need for immediate action to supplement the Town’s existing shore protection project with the proposed terminal groin structure. Consequently, the Town’s purpose of the proposed NRIMMP is to help mitigate the ongoing severe and chronic erosion of the Town’s north end oceanfront shoreline and provide for the protection of residential structures, infrastructure, recreational assets, and natural resources.
