Drainage Canals Cleared

Drainage improvements in Tyrrell County County work crews have been busy cleaning drainage canals and repairing tide gates to improve drainage in the Goat Neck and Alligator communities. The Albemarle Resource and Development Council worked with the communities and county in 2008 to clean canals and install six tide gates at key locations. With rising water levels and more intense storm events maintaining drainage infrastructure in low-lying communities is a constant need.
