Hurricane Florence Disaster Response

The General Assembly has appropriated disaster recovery funds to help implement BMPs that will address the impacts of Hurricane Florence.

Florence – Watershed Recovery/Stream Debris Removal Needs (Including requests for State match for EWP) – Use to request state assistance with stream debris removal and other watershed recovery needs related to Hurricane Florence.  Units of government that have submitted a request for Emergency Watershed Protection Program (EWP) assistance should also submit a request for state assistance to cover the non-federal cost share for those projects.  Subject to available funds, state funds not needed for EWP match may be used to address needs on sites not approved for EWP.

The Soil and Water Conservation Commission approved the following BMPs and policies.
