Abstract: The Lumber River Basin Flood Risk Management Study Technical Report documents the plan formulation study conducted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Charleston District. The Non-Federal Sponsor for this study effort is the State of North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ). The study is an interim response to the Senate Committee on Public Works Resolution adopted October 15, 1968; House Committee on Public Works Resolution adopted December 11, 1969 and was included in the 2019 Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief (Public Law 116-20). Lumber River basin has a history of riverine flooding which occurs from rainfall during storm and hurricane events. Problems include damage to residential and non-residential structures, impacts to industry, commerce, transportation, and the natural environment, as well as damages to public infrastructure. The purpose of the study is to identify, formulate and evaluate cost effective, environmentally acceptable and technically feasible alternatives to reduce flood damages and impacts within the Basin. To this end, an initial array of management measures was brainstormed to address the planning objectives. These measures included structural and non-structural measures and consideration of natural and nature based solutions throughout the basin. Measures were then screened based on effectiveness, cost and environmental acceptability. Screening level analysis relied on professional judgement and qualitative assessments of the screening criteria. Based on this screening, none of the identified measures were retained for additional consideration and no plan was identified for USACE implementation. Therefore, the No Action Alternative is the Recommended Plan.
