2019 NC Waterway Debris Removal Sampson County, Columbus County, Robeson County, The Lumber River

KDF is currently providing waterway debris removal in these 3 counties and along the Lumber River partly as a result of storm related debris from recent years and also due to beaver dams causing flow restrictions. This involves complete stream debris removal activities including cutting and removing downed trees, broken tops and woody debris that impede or potentially impede flow in the streams and tributaries. To help the local community these obstructions are moved to a safe area, not only to help eliminate the current risk to safety on navigable waters, but more importantly the risk to human health and safety during potential flood event.
