Sewer Mitigation and Rehabilitation for Citywide Resiliency

City of New Bern
Program Area:
Hurricane Florence Disaster Recovery Grant Program
County of Applicant:

After Hurricane Matthew, New Bern began a phased approach to mitigate sewer overflows and other hazards following flood events, focused on infrastructure located adjacent to the Trent River. This infrastructure was flooded again during Hurricane Florence. The city proposes to relocate a lift station currently located on the bank of the river to a higher elevation and out of the floodplain. The lift station serves one quarter of the city’s sewer customers. Golden LEAF disaster recovery grant funds will be used for costs of abandoning the current station and the construction of the relocated the station.
