Topsail Beach News

It was a busy weekend for our Beach Nourishment Project as the submerged pipe arrived, and the first pipe landed!   The submerged pipe, located out in the ocean, will be used as the main transport for sand from the inlet to the Topsail Beach/Surf City line.  The dredge J.S. Chatry will be working in the inlet.  The line connecting the submerged pipe to the beach is located just south of Queens Grant, as nourishment work will move northward from that location at the start of the project.  Once the northern stretch is completed, the project will begin to move south.  In early March the second dredge, Borinquen will arrive and begin working in Banks Channel using pipeline connecting the sound with the ocean at Drum Avenue.  

Weeks Marine will continue to construct both the submerged pipeline and the pipes on the beach throughout the week and into the weekend.  Weather may play a factor mid-week, but every effort is being made to get all the equipment in place as quickly and safely as possible.  Please remember to avoid those areas where work is ongoing.

The Town has been made aware that some of our residents have been mailed a water testing kit by a Marketing Research Corporation.  The Town’s water system is continually monitored and tested monthly by a qualified company.  You can find the latest annual drinking water report (the CCR report) on the Town’s website. The latest report is 2018. The Town will receive the 2019 report in June. It will then be uploaded to the Town’s website as well as mailed out to all residents and property owners that receive a monthly utility bill.

As always, Town staff will be happy to answer any questions.

Jones-Onslow Electric Membership Corporation (JOEMC) is continuing its efforts to improve electric service as its current project moves from Surf City into Topsail Beach.  The project, which includes replacing old electric poles and replacing worn wiring and other hardware, is an effort by JOEMC to upgrade its service and provide safer, more reliable service to our residents and homeowners.  The improvements include upgrading the transmission line to the substation located at North Anderson Blvd. and Sidbury Avenue.  

As part of the project it is necessary for JOEMC to clear portions of the right-of-way to have safe access for the personnel and equipment to do the job.  The amount of right-of-way to be cleared depends on the circumstances of each pole (i.e. anchor required), however it is the goal of JOEMC to minimize the impact on surrounding properties as much as possible.  You can expect some travel delays while the work is underway with lane closures possible.
