The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks comments from the public to consider and evaluate the impacts the project proposal for the construction of a 750-feet terminal groin structure on Holden Beach just west of Lockwood Folly Inlet and Oak Island.
Public comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) are used to assess the impacts of the terminal groin construction.
The North Carolina Coastal Federation opposes the Holden Beach terminal groin project due to the that harm hardened structures cause to essential estuarine waters, marine fisheries, and endangered piping plover and sea turtle nesting sites. There are alternative methods to preventing erosion that should be explored for Holden Beach and would create less economic and environmental damage.
