Drainage is a vital element in a coastal community. Positive, unobstructed drainage promotes the health, safety, and general welfare of our citizens, and safeguards the natural and man-made resources of the county.  Engineering has an Engineering Specialist dedicated to responding to drainage complaints and assisting property owners with drainage issues.  There is also a Capital Improvement Project in place to complete small scale drainage improvement projects that benefit property owners in the unincorporated areas of New Hanover County.

For any drainage-related questions or concerns, please contact Jerry May by email at jmay@nhcgov.com, or by phone at 910-798-7129.
