Lake Mattamuskeet Watershed Restoration Plan Virtual Public Meeting
August 26, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
In 2017, Hyde County, N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service formed a partnership and contracted the North Carolina Coastal Federation to develop a plan to address poor water quality within Lake Mattamuskeet as well as chronic and persistent flooding on the surrounding landscape. After an 18-month long planning process that involved stakeholder and public engagement, the Lake Mattamuskeet Watershed Restoration Plan was officially approved by the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality on August 7, 2019 marking the transition from the development phase to the implementation phase of the watershed plan.
Join the federation and project partners for a virtual public meeting to discuss the implementation of the Lake Mattamuskeet Watershed Restoration Plan on August 26, 2020 from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. The agenda for the public meeting includes an overview of the approved watershed plan, updates from the project partners, and review of recent grant awards that will advance the implementation of priority management actions.
Additionally, attendees will learn more about a grant award from the National Science Foundation to a research team at East Carolina University to support a project that will take place within the Lake Mattamuskeet watershed titled, “Using Undergraduate Engineers and Community Engagement to Build Resilient Coastal Communities.”
