Surf City South Shore Flood Mitigation Project

Town of Surf City
Program Area:
Flood Mitigation and Recovery Program
County of Applicant:

The 2200 block of South Shore Drive in Surf City experiences flooding on the roadway due to insufficient stormwater infrastructure. Stormwater runoff is trapped on the road by higher elevation of driveways serving houses along the road. Heavy rainfall causes flooding that obstructs passage of vehicles, including public safety vehicles. This road is the only way in and out of southern Surf City and serves the entirety of Topsail Beach. A feasibility study of the overall stormwater issues along South Shore Drive developed a specific solution to address the issue. Golden LEAF flood mitigation grant funds will be used to install a catch basin with drain pipe to convey stormwater to a new infiltration chamber system that collects and releases stormwater back into native soils. Once completed, the town’s utilities staff will maintain the system. The project will directly serve households, and public and private entities.
