Town of Ocean Isle Beach
Natural Canals


The Natural Canal Dredging project scheduled for maintenance during the 2018-19 budget cycle was delayed due to issues with placement of the spoil material.  The Town has now however, been successful in receiving permission from the Corps of Engineers to use the Corps spoil area located at the end of Lee Street.  The Corps has agreed to allow the Town to remove material from the disposal area and then place an equal or lesser amount within the disposal area during the project.

The Natural Canal Dredging Project is anticipated to take place during the Fall of FY 2019-20.  This maintenance dredging project proposes to use a hydraulic pipeline dredge to remove approximately 28,000 CY of dredge spoil material in approximately 18,270 linear feet from these canals.  

The Town is also submitting a grant application to the NC Division of Water Resources to help with the cost of this project.  If successful in obtaining this grant allocation, excess funds will be refunded to these property owners.  

The current special tax district for this project is $3.74 per foot or $187 for a 50' lot.  These projects are performed every 5 years and all excess funds at the close of the project are returned to the property owners.
