Stormwater Measures Tour Set for June 2

CEDAR POINT — The North Carolina Coastal Federation and East Carolina University are set to host on June 2 a tour of newly installed stormwater best management practices in Cedar Point and the Croatan National Forest in Carteret County.

The federation has been working with the university during the past two years to install measures that reduce stormwater runoff entering the White Oak River. The university is conducting additional pre- and post-installation monitoring.

Storm water best management practices are designed to reduce stormwater volume with minimal environmental impact. Projects featured on the tour include streetside swales, a rain garden, cisterns and check dams. As part of the tour, attendees will learn how to incorporate similar measures into their own yards.

The tour is scheduled for noon-1:30 p.m. with a picnic lunch provided.
