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

Efforts continue on the Town’s Channel Dredging and Beach Restoration Project.  The objective of the project is to provide protection from storms and erosion to our beachfront properties until our Storm Damage Reduction (SDR) Project (as part of our 30-Year Beach Management Plan) is underway.  The SDR Project is scheduled for late fall /early winter of 2019, and will expand on these efforts creating a new dune structure and widening the existing beach.  

The current Beach Restoration Project has been modified as a result of several issues impacting the project, including but not limited to a delayed start-up, equipment trouble, weather/water conditions, and CAMA / USACE related design changes.  It now appears we will not receive a requested extension to continue our Beach Restoration Project into May.  This limitation has also limited our ability for total sand placement.  As a result, the focus of the beach repair will be on those areas with the greatest risk of erosion potentially impacting structures.  Because the condition of the beach and dunes in the middle of the Town is adequate, work on the beach will shift from the southern end of the island to Queens Grant and properties north towards the town limits. The updated progress maps on our website highlight these changes.  These modifications, although different from the original plan, still meet the objective of rebuilding the beach to the point of providing greater protection to property from increased erosion resulting from storms or related events until the larger SDR Project can be completed.  A community meeting will be held in early May with more information on the SDR Project. 

Please remember this is a construction process with many elements, including Mother Nature’s involvement.  Our goal continues to be to provide a beach that serves our community’s needs for enjoyment and protection.

Look for additional progress maps and updates on our website as the work continues.  For more information on these upcoming projects, please contact us at Town Hall.

NCDOT to Inspect New Surf City Bridge
Lane closures expected with inspection

SURF CITY – The N.C. Department of Transportation will inspect the new Surf City Bridge next week.

During the inspection, which will last from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 1 through April 3, NCDOT will intermittently close a lane, while keeping one lane open for traffic at all times.

Drivers are urged to use caution and slow down as they approach the lane closure.

The Surf City Bridge opened ahead of schedule late last year. All new bridges must be inspected after they’re complete. This inspection will set a guide for future inspections.

The new 65-foot-high Surf City Bridge represents an improvement over the old swing bridge it replaces, as the swing bridge forced motorists to wait numerous times each day so the bridge could be opened to allow boats to pass. Traffic now can move continuously over the bridge as boats pass underneath.


For real-time travel information, visit DriveNC.gov or follow NCDOT on social media.

After a slow start, the Town’s Channel Dredging and Dune Restoration Project is well underway.  Weather issues, particularly in the north where much of the equipment for the project originated, impacted the start of the project.  The attached maps show the status of the project both for dredging of Topsail Creek, and the sand distribution along the shoreline.  Dune and beach restoration started at the south end of the island and is moving north towards the town limits.  Time frames are best estimates and dependent on weather conditions.  

Please be aware that this is a major construction project and ask everyone to avoid the active areas at all times.

The Town is still working towards our larger scale Local Project including a new dune structure and increased beach area.  We have received permits from the State, and continue to work with other federal Agencies such as FEMA and the Army Corp of Engineers to secure all necessary permits and funding.  Our goal is for that project to begin late fall/early winter 2019.  A community meeting will be held in early May with more information. 

Look for additional progress maps and updates on our website as the work continues.  For more information on these upcoming projects, please contact us at Town Hall.

Preparations continue for the Town’s Channel Dredging and Dune Restoration Project.  The dredge is here and additional equipment (pipes, boosters, etc.) are on the way.  The proposed project includes dredging Topsail Creek and some areas of shoaling in Banks Channel that will improve boating access and safety for our recreational boaters and commercial vessels.  In addition, the beneficial sand removed as part of the dredging will be used to help repair the dunes damaged from the storm. This project will help get our dunes back to pre-Florence levels.

Residents will begin seeing equipment and activity on the beach as early as next week, weather permitting.  Activity for both the dredge and on the beach will start on the south end of the town and move north. In an effort to complete the project in a timely fashion, work will be ongoing 24 hours a day.  Noise from the booster and the heavy equipment is an unfortunate impact of the project.  Although every effort is made to minimize the impact of noise and lighting, please be aware that there will be times when equipment is in operation during the nighttime and early morning hours.  We ask everyone to be aware that this is a major construction project and ask everyone to avoid the active areas at all times.

While this project will help provide navigation benefits and restoration to our dunes, additional work to improve our beach will be necessary.  Efforts are still underway to complete our bigger Local Project including a new dune structure and increased beach area.  That project is scheduled to start late fall/early winter 2019.  

A community meeting will be held in the spring with more information.Look for weekly progress maps and updates on our website as work gets underway!  For more information on these upcoming projects, please contact us at Town Hall.

At the Board Meeting Wednesday night, the Commissioners voted to accept the bid from Cottrell Contracting Corporation to complete the planned Channel Dredging and Dune Restoration Project.  The proposed project includes dredging Topsail Creek and some areas of shoaling in Banks Channel that will improve boating access and safety for our recreational boaters and commercial vessels.  In addition, the beneficial sand removed as part of the dredging will be used to help repair the dunes damaged from the storm. The project will help get our dunes back to pre-Florence levels.

Work on this project is already underway!  The contractor has begun mobilizing and the dredge has arrived.  Residents will begin seeing equipment and activity on the beach as early as next week, weather permitting.  Activity for both the dredge and on the beach will start on the south end of the town and move north.  We anticipate this work to be complete the end of March/First of April.  

The second, bigger nourishment project is planned for late fall – early winter.   This project will involve dredging more of Banks Channel and Topsail Inlet and utilizing the sand to nourish our beach and provide greater protection from future storms.  More information on this project will be sent out as it becomes available.   

For more information on these upcoming projects, please contact us at Town Hall.

Recently the North Carolina Department of Insurance announced that the North Carolina Rate Bureau filed a notice requesting an increase to Homeowners Insurance Policies on average of 17.4.% statewide.  Actual proposed rate increases vary based on territory throughout the state.  For Topsail Beach (within Territory 120) the proposed increase for homeowners caps at 30%, renter insurance 15%, and condominiums 15%.   The proposal includes Homeowners Insurance Policies and Wind and Hail Policies. 

The Town of Topsail Beach and the Board of Commissioners strongly oppose this request, finding it extreme and unwarranted.  The Board has adopted a Resolution in Opposition of the request and is forwarding its objections to the Insurance Commissioner.  Attached is a copy of the resolution for your information.

We urge all of our property owners to contact the Department of Insurance and express your opposition to the rate hike.  You can do that the following ways:

Portuguese men-of-war have been spotted washing up on shore in Emerald Isle. Although there have been no reports of any sightings on Topsail Beach, it is always a good idea to be aware and keep an eye out as you enjoy the beach. Portuguese men-of-war are venomous and will cause excruciating pain to a person if stung. They can still sting even if they are washed up on the shore, so please do not handle if you see one.

Please enjoy the beach, but remember we do share the ocean!

Hello, thank you so much for your patience during this trying time.  We know everyone is anxious to hear about our home.  During a break in the storm, town staff was able to do a preliminary assessment of the damage.  There are still areas of both Topsail Beach and Surf City with standing saltwater in the roads.  Most of the damage to structures in Topsail Beach was limited to roofing, shingles and siding.  We are certain that homes have experienced some flooding on lower level floors.  Please not that a full assessment has not been completed, so some structures may have experienced more damage, however the overall impact was better than first feared.


The dunes held up vey well overall.  Breaches occurred near Smith Avenue and. Drum Avenue, but overall they withstood the storm.  We did experience some damage to crossovers.

Crew are being deployed to begin work on clearing debris and sand from the streets.  Jones-Onslow electric and Duke Power are assessing damage in hopes to begin work very soon.  As of now, re-entry to Topsail Beach and Surf City is prohibbitted, but we are working together to get everyone back to your homes.

Again, we thank you for your patience.

Good evening.  Topsail Beach staff is continuing to work on assessing the damage resulting from Hurricane Florence.  Unfortunately the storm is moving very slowly, making access to the island difficult.  Our hope is to work with Jones-Onslow and Surf City to secure safe entry to Topsail Beach for our residents and property owners.  Early today, staff was able to go to Topsail Beach for a preliminary review.  There is debris on the roads and standing water in some areas making for difficult travel.


Efforts are underway to restore power and make roads passable.  Once this is done, we will have a clearer idea as to when Topsail Beach and Surf City can begin re-entry.

We ask that you remain patient as we deal with the impacts of this huge storm.  Our goal is the safety of our citizens and staff.  As soon as possible, we will provide more detailed information.

Please be safe.

There is a scheduled power outage for Tuesday October 3rd at 8 am.  Jones Onslow expects the outage to last no longer than 3 hours.  Please plan accordingly.  See the following notification:

September 25, 2017 

 

Dear Member,

 

Jones-Onslow EMC is steadfast in our efforts to deliver safe, reliable electric service to our members.  In keeping with this commitment, plans and preparations have been made to relocate four transmission poles in the area where the new Publix is being built. In order to complete this process, we will need to have an outage on October 3, 2017, at 8:00 am.  Power should be restored within three hours and every effort will be made to reduce the outage time even further. We have planned the outage during daylight hours to make the work go as fast as possible and for safer working conditions. In case of inclement weather, the outage will occur on Wednesday, October 4, 2017.

 

The affected areas include Topsail Island from 9th Street in Surf City to the south end of the island including East Ocean Road from Holly Ridge south to the island.

 

A reminder telephone call from our automated phone system will be made to you the day before the outage. Please ensure we have your correct phone number prior to this date. If we do not have your correct phone number, call 910-353-1940, have your account number handy and choose option 2, then listen to the instructions for updating your phone number.

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding while this work is performed.

 

Sincerely,

Jeffery T. Clark

Chief Executive Officer

The National Weather Service has issued a Hurricane Jose update for the area:

Overview:  Swells from hurricane Jose will begin impacting the area beaches Saturday and Sunday.  This will create hazardous beach conditions including deadly rip currents Otherwise, high pressure will prevail with highs in the lower to middle 80's and lows in the middle to upper 60's.  Only an isolated shower is possible along the southeast North Carolina coast on Sunday.

Impacts:  High risk of rip currents is likely Saturday and Sunday at all area beaches.  Also, navigation in and out of inlets will be difficult as high surf will be a significant navigation hazard.

The Town of Topsail Beach is closely monitoring Hurricane Irma.  Although it is early to determine the direction of the storm, it’s a good idea to start preparing now for some type of impact.  Secure all outdoor items such as trash cans and lawn furniture and take any measures you can to protect your home from possible floodwaters.  These floodwaters could impact your ability to drive.  If you have any medical concerns or special needs please plan accordingly.

The Mayor will be making periodic phone calls to update you with any new information.  If you would like to signup to receive these calls you can do so on the Town's website at www.topsailbeach.org. Just click on the orange and white Connect-CTY box and follow the prompts. 

If you do not have the pink re-entry sticker the Town sent out on the May utility bill, any other documentation that associates you with the property will work to get you back on the island in the event that it is open to property owners only.

The Town of Topsail Beach Board of Commissioners will hold two public hearings; on Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 2:00 PM  and Wednesday, December 14, 2016 at 6:00 PM at the Topsail Beach Town Hall to consider (1) a Town-initiated Zoning Map Amendment of all oceanfront property owners to include a new Oceanfront Protective Dune System Overlay District and (2) a text amendment to Division 6 (Zoning Districts and Regulations) of Article IV (Zoning) of Chapter 16 (Land Development) of the Town Code of Ordinances to establish requirements for the new overlay district.  The proposed amendment will address building regulations required for the development of land, to the end of conserving the volume of sand within the protective dunes in the new overlay district.   At its September regular meeting, the Planning Board voted to submit to the Board of Commissioners a draft text amendment prepared primarily by the Town Attorney and by the Town’s consulting engineer that provides for the new overlay district and regulations. The submitted text amendment includes text provisions suggested by the Planning Board, which also recommended that the Board of Commissioners take no action until FEMA approves the proposed revisions to the dune ordinance. More details, including a map of the proposed overlay zoning district, are available for public inspection during regular business hours at Town Hall.  All interested parties are invited to attend. For more information contact Town Hall at 910-328-5841.

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.

Re: Planned Outage October 29, 2013
Dear Member,

Your Cooperative is making renovations to the Topsail substation located at 14245 NC Highway 50. This renovation will provide additional dependability for the station. It will also update transmission lines which are in excess of 30 years old. These lines are the sole source of power to the Topsail and South Beach substations which serve almost 6000 customers. This work requires a power outage and it has been scheduled for Tuesday, October 29, 2013, beginning at 8:30am. All members should have power restored within three hours. In case of inclement weather, the outage will occur on Wednesday, October 30, 2013.

This outage will affect all consumers in the Town of Topsail Beach and in the Surf City area along Roland Avenue and New River Drive to the Surf City town limit. It will also affect the areas of Little Kinston and members along NC Highway 50 from the draw bridge to the Food Lion shopping center.

Thank you for your patience as we continue with improvements such as these to provide you with reliable electric service.

Sincerely,
J. Ronald McElheney
Chief Executive Officer
