There is no in-person option for this meeting. A recording of the presentation will air later using the city of Greenville’s government access channel.

The district is collaborating with the study’s non-federal sponsor the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality to conduct a feasibility study of the Tar Pamlico River Basin to develop flood risk-management alternatives for the river basin. The corps is hosting a series of virtual public meetings to share information about the feasibility study, review the study’s progress and gather community feedback on the study. Each meeting focuses on a separate geographic area within the basin. The meetings consist of a 30-minute presentation followed by a question-and-answer session. More information about the study and how to access the meetings can be found on the district’s website: www.lrp.usace.army.mil/Missions/Planning-Programs-Project Management/Tar-Pamlico-Feasibility-Study/.
Public meetings are important opportunities for communities to learn about, provide feedback, voice concerns, and share information about potential flood risk-management options. Community input is vital to shaping the corps’ present and future operations and initiatives. All comments will be recorded and considered.
