Therefore, the Town of Carolina Beach and the NC Division of Environmental Health advise that consumers Boil All Water used for human consumption ( including drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, making ice and washing hands ) Or Use Bottled Water. Vigorous boiling for a minute or two is sufficient. Customers will be notified when testing is completed and service is returned to normal.
Carolina Beach Lake Dredging Project
Beginning March 27th, the parking lot at the lake will be closed off , and the walking trail will be closed from west of the playground to 3rd street for the entire length of the project. CLICK HERE for a map of the areas affected by the closure. Other access points may close as the project continues.
Inlet Dredging to cause closures in parts of Freeman Park
The US Army Corps of Engineers will begin dredging in the Intercoastal Waterway and Carolina Beach Inlet Crossing areas beginning the first week of April and continue through May 1st. Their contractor will start placing dredge pipe from the crossing on Freeman Park south to Zone 10, and due to the small travel lane between Zone 10 and Zone 19, there will be no room for additional vehicular traffic. Therefore, the beach area and campsites north of Zone 10 will be closed during that time.
The actual dredging will only take a couple of weeks, and the dredge spoils will be placed south of Zone 10 going towards the pier. The Corps will not allow sand to be placed between Zone 10 and Zone 19 at the pinch point due to the close proximity of the inlet. It is their belief that any sand placed in this area will immediately be transported by the currents into the inlet and defeat the purpose of the dredging.
During the project, the contractor will close other portions of Freeman Park where the spoils are being deposited for the safety of the public. As soon as the project is complete and the equipment is removed we will re-open the north end of Freeman Park.
Please contact the Town Manager’s office if you have any questions.
