See the latest information about vegetative debris collection on private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county due to Isaias >> https://www.brunswickcountync.gov/isaiasdebris

Residents on private roads in the unincorporated areas of Brunswick County need to place their vegetative debris from Hurricane Isaias in in the right-of-way of their property no later than the evening of Sunday, Aug. 30 for collection.

Click here for full details and instructions on this collection.

Crews will make one pass across the county and could arrive in any area as early as Monday. Any vegetative debris that is not on the right-of-way by Sunday evening will not be collected.

A right-of-way is generally defined as the edge of your property before the curb. If you have a sidewalk, ditch, or utility line in front of your house, make sure that your debris does not cover or restrict these areas.

This service will only include the private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county, including private roads in gated communities. The service will also collect any tree hangers or leaners in the rights-of-way.

This service will not collect or remove tree hangers or leaners that are on private property outside of a right-of-way.

Residents who need assistance to move debris or other needs following Hurricane Isaias can contact the Brunswick County VOAD for guidance and direction to organizations or services that may be able to help: 910-253-2589

Know Your Flood Hazard

Coastal Flood Zones

Brunswick County consists of several flood zones. Flood Zone X and Shaded X are considered to be a low risk for flooding and are not regulated by ordinance at this time. The following flood zones have mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements and floodplain management standards apply:

  • VE zones or Coastal High Hazard Areas are zones where high velocity wave action accompanies the storm surge and can cause severe damage to buildings.
  • Coastal A Zone (NEW): area landward of a V-Zone, or landward of an open coast without mapped V-Zones. In a Coastal A Zone, the principal source of flooding will be astronomical tides, storm surges, seiches or tsunamis, not riverine flooding.
  • AE zones are areas affected by storm surge but where wave action is diminished or absent.
  • Flood Zone A are areas subject to inundation by the 1-percent-annual-chance flood event.

Because detailed hydraulic analyses have not been performed, no Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) or flood depths are shown.
