Corps to Host Virtual Public Meetings for Tar Pamlico River Basin Feasibility Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District is conducting a feasibility study on the Tar Pamlico River Basin and will host a series of virtual public involvement meetings to gather community input on the feasibility study.  The meetings are organized by geographic region and held from March 22-31.

The district is collaborating with the study’s non-federal sponsor, the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality to conduct a feasibility study of the Tar Pamlico River Basin to develop flood risk-management alternatives for the river basin.  The corps is hosting a series of virtual public meetings to share information about the feasibility study, review the study’s progress and gather community feedback on the study.  Each meeting focuses on a separate geographic area within the basin.  The meetings consist of a 30-minute presentation, followed by a question-and-answer session.

More information about the study and how to access the meetings can be found on the district’s website HERE.  The virtual meetings, organized by geographic area are to be held from March 22-31.  Each meeting is 1.5 hours from 6:00-7:30 pm, and can be accessed via WebEx conference HERE.  To join by phone, attendees can call 1-844-800-2712 and use the access code 199-053-6905.

The virtual meeting for the Town of Louisburg and Franklin County will be held on March 22 from 6:00-7:30 pm.  There is no in-person option for this meeting.
