DUNE INFILTRATION SYSTEM WORKSHOP – JUNE 22 @ KB Community Center beginning @ 10AM

Since 2006 the Town of Kure Beach has been working with NC State University and the NC Department of Transportation in developing a low-cost, low-tech solution to storm water discharge to the recreational beach areas.  The result of this endeavor has been the development of the Dune Infiltration System.  Three of these systems have been installed in the dunes between K and M Avenues.  The systems have significantly reduced the amount of both storm water and associated bacteria that discharges to the beaches. This workshop is designed to increase awareness of this new technology to coastal town officials, local cooperative extension agents, and other interested citizens. The workshop will include several presentations given by NCSU Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist Mike Burchell who has lead the design and research of this system.  These presentations are designed to give an overview of design, installation, expected performance, and limitations of these systems in hopes that other coastal towns may be able to adopt this technology.  These presentations will be followed with an afternoon field trip to the site, led by Dr. Burchell and Public Works Director Sonny Beeker.

Agenda:
10:00 am Presentation of Dune Infiltration Projects and Lessons Learned - Dr. Mike Burchell
11:45 am Questions and Answers
12:00-1:00 pm Lunch (on your own)
1:00 -2:00 pm Site Visit (Dr. Mike Burchell and Sonny Beeker)
2:00 pm Adjourn. 

 

 If you would like to attend this workshop or have questions, please contact Robin Robertson at 910-458-5816 or kbpublicworks@charter.net.
While the presentation is free, we do ask that you contact us if you plan to attend.
