When is the county or state going to clean out Prince George Creek?

Q. When is the county or state going to clean out Prince George Creek? It is full of logs, brush and beaver dams. North College Road has flooded twice in the past and water was near the top of the road. This problem could cause future flooding to roads and homes.

 A. “Currently, there are no plans to clean out Prince George Creek,” said Charles Smith, a spokesman for New Hanover County. “ More than five years ago there was a small snag and drag operation to remove trees that were downed during hurricanes. That project was done through the New Hanover County Soil and Water Conservation District utilizing a small grant. We have recently investigated the area and did not discover any beaver dams. If there are any beaver dams found in the area, they should be reported to the Engineering Department so that we can take action through our contract with the USDA.”

The Engineering Department’s phone number is 798-7139.
