The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), Wilmington District, will conduct a public meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018, regarding a disposition study focused on the three locks and dams included in the Corps’ authorized project known as Cape Fear River, N.C., above Wilmington. Lock and Dam No. 1, Lock and Dam No. 2, and William 0 . Huske Lock and Dam, and associated properties, are all located on and bordering the Cape Fear River in Bladen County, North Carolina. This meeting is to inform stakeholders having interest in the future condition and operation of the locks and dams of the Corps’ disposition study’s process and milestones, of what its timeline is, and why the locks and dams were selected for the study. Additionally, this meeting will provide stakeholders and the interested public the opportunity to offer comments.

This meeting is scheduled for September 18, 2018, at the Bladen County Cooperative Extension Center (450 Smith Circle, Elizabethtown, NC 28337), from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM. The Corps understands that this invitation is being provided with relatively short notice given the meeting date; however, elements of the disposition study must be conducted expeditiously and on a condensed timeline to the extent practicable.
