To measure the effectiveness of the Town's Septic Health Initiative and Stormwater projects.
To provide a general measure of water quality in the Town of Nags Head.
Monitoring through-out Nags Head that will attempt measure the levels of bacteria and nutrients in groundwater as it gravitates from an area close to septic systems towards surface water monitoring sites. Monitoring locations include:
Nags Head Woods (1 groundwater monitoring well)
Groundwater monitoring in an area without development to provide control data for the rest of the monitoring sites.
Wrightsville and Memorial Avenue area of Conch Shell Estates and Geo T. Stronach subdivisions (1 ocean outfall, 2 surface and 1 groundwater well)
Ground and surface water monitoring at the north (Wrightsville Avenue) and south (Memorial Avenue) ends of these adjoining subdivisions.
Will possibly show contrasts of an existing subdivision already developed with that of an area currently being developed.
