Hurricane season runs June 1 until Nov. 1 and typically during this period, at least one major storm forms and impacts our state.  Last year, the flooding from Hurricane Florence devastated thousands of residents who didn’t have flood insurance because they relied on their homeowners’ policy that does not cover damage from rising water.  NC Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey has set up five flood insurance conferences statewide to inform the public, insurance and real estate agents of the need to purchase flood insurance, regardless of where you live.  Please click on the link below for conference dates and locations.

Mandatory Topsail Beach Watering Schedule


The Following watering schedule is for irrigation systems that are connected to the Town water system and is in effect from May 27 – September 30 each year

All property owners NORTH OF DAVIS AVE can irrigate during the hours of 2 A.M. and 4 A.M. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday only. 

All property owners SOUTH OF DAVIS AVE can irrigate during the hours of 2 A.M. and 4 A.M. on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday only.

All in-ground irrigation systems using Town water must have rainfall cut off sensors installed, or must be manually shut off to prevent watering during active rainfall within any assigned irrigation time and day. 

Manual Watering with Town water for owners without in-ground irrigation systems is restricted to two (2) hours per day using the same addressing system described above. Any manual watering must take place between the hours of 5 A.M. and 10 A.M. during these assigned days. 

It is recognized that many homeowners without irrigation systems are unable to water during the week because they are only here on weekends. Thus, manual watering for two (2) hours on Saturday or Sunday is permitted between the hours of 5 A.M. and 10 A.M. 

There will be NO watering for the period between July 2-8.

ADOPTED 8-12-15

The current beach nourishment project is in full swing and is progressing north towards the Town Line.  As the beach work is completed in your area, you may begin thinking about repairing your beach access and stairs.  Please keep in mind that you will need CAMA authorization and a building permit from the Town before the repairs are made. 

Attached is the Private Beach Access Crossover ordinance which details the guidelines and regulations for new and repaired beach accesses, as well as the building permit application.  The Town’s CAMA Representative is Jason Dail. He can be reached at 910-796-7221 or Jason.Dail@ncdenr.gov

As we continue to recover from the impacts of Hurricane Florence, many of us have questions about the proper procedures for repairing our beach walkways or piers.  The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality and CAMA have a “CAMA Handbook for Development” that is very helpful in understanding the rules and requirements for your project.  The handbook will help answer many of your questions, with Section 4 being particularly useful. Town staff is always willing to help as well.
