Dawson-Hunter Stormwater Improvement Study

City of Elizabeth City
Program Area:
Flood Mitigation and Recovery Program
County of Applicant:

The Dawson-Hunter neighborhood in Elizabeth City is subject to flooding due to low elevation and proximity to Charles Creek and the Pasquotank River. Repetitive flooding is limiting access for residents, damaging state and local roads, and creating risks of damage to water and sewer pipe beds. Golden LEAF flood mitigation grant funds will be used to perform necessary assessment and analysis of the drainage basin and stormwater infrastructure, and to develop and prioritize stormwater control measures that will mitigate repetitive flooding as cost-effectively as possible. NCDEQ Division of Water Resources awarded the city a $100,000 Water Resources Development Grant to fund 50 percent of eligible costs for stormwater planning in the area; this grant will provide the remaining funding for that planning process. The project will directly benefit households located in the neighborhood.
