Flooding Survey Open to Currituck Residents

Currituck County is asking the public to participate in an online survey on flooding.

The county is the focus of a flood-mapping project being performed by a Duke University graduate student. An important part of the study is a public survey which asks for county residents’ and property owners’ feedback about flooding history and perceived flood risks.

This study is to continue until March 2018 and provide a record of areas affected by flooding and understanding the community’s perception of local flooding. Results from the anonymous survey will also be included in a research report to be published online and shared with The Nature Conservancy and Currituck County Planning Department for use in future planning and managing of flood hazards.
