Kitty Hawk Clears Canals, Ditches

This video published May 11 explains the work Kitty Hawk undertook in January to remove vegetative debris from the canal and ditch networks within the town.

The project is 100 percent funded by the state as a result of Hurricane Matthew, Tropical Storm Hermine and Julia. The total grant funding received by the town is $216,380.

The project scope consists of removing vegetative debris caused by these storms and other obstructions blocking the flow of the waterways. When there is flooding or heavy rains, the clear drains and canals will give water a less obstructed path to flow out of the village.

Once the town was notified they were awarded the grant, seven areas were identified to be cleaned: Ginguite Canal, Newfoundland Gut Canal, Duck Pond Ditch, Mingers Ridge Creek, Penny Toler Ditch and Bull Ridge Gut.
