Visit us in Wrightsville Beach for a walking tour of our stormwater reduction projects and check out the ways we help to keep your local waterways clean.
How does stormwater affect our community?
Stormwater runoff is the No. 1 polluter of our coastal creeks and sounds. Rainwater flows over hard surfaces picking up bacteria and pollutants along the way.
The North Carolina Coastal Federation teamed up with the Town of Wrightsville Beach and other partners to build low-impact development projects around the John Nesbitt Loop. While on the Walk the Loop for Clean Water trail, you’ll see how simple techniques reduce polluted stormwater runoff, which protects and restores water quality in the coastal waters we all love. Many of these techniques can be installed in your yard or place of business!
