Engineering Costs for Planning and Development of Flood Mitigation Solutions for the Adkin Branch Stream

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

The City of Kinston experiences flooding along Adkin Branch which runs through many residential areas and commercial/business districts. When flooding occurs along Adkin Branch, residents are restricted from accessing emergency services and nearby medical offices. The city will use Golden LEAF flood mitigation grant funds to review existing data sources, collect additional data from field surveys, begin permitting processes, and to update existing models as needed. The city will also use funds for project coordination, and to develop a plan for flood mitigation solutions. The city has committed to funding remaining costs associated with this project from its stormwater utility fund. The city has also received funding from North Carolina Emergency Management for Stage 2 improvements along Adkin Branch. Households in the immediate project area and surrounding areas in the city will benefit from this project.
