NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Many leaders from the Carolina coast are back home Thursday after a few days in the nation’s capital.
Representatives from New Hanover County and its three local beach towns, along with other coastal communities, gathered in Washington D.C. for the NC Water Resources Congress.
In addition to the planned events, attendants take the time to meet with members of the Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Representatives and Senators.
Carolina Beach Mayor Bob Lewis said Thursday that the time spent in Washington is meant to remind decision makers about the important of coastal concerns like inlet dredging and beach nourishment.
