|Title:||Stormwater Solutions for North Carolina - NERRS/NSC(NERRS Science Collaborative)|
Stormwater pollution is the number one threat to coastal water quality in North Carolina, where it contributes to beach closures, impacts tourism, and interrupts shellfish harvests. Rapid urbanization, population growth, and a shifting climate have all converged to make it increasingly difficult for the state’s communities to reduce the volume of stormwater washing over th landscape and protect water quality. Excess runoff also leads to street flooding that ranges from being a nuisance to a danger to public safety.
A team led by the North Carolina Reserve, the North Carolina Coastal Federation, and the University of North Carolina Wilmington collaborated with local communities, nonprofits, and state agencies to reduce the volume of polluted stormwater runoff in southeast coastal North Carolina.
