Brunswick Is Amo
ng Sponsors Of Upcoming Water Quality Symposium
BY LYNN CARLSON
A request by nine Brunswick County local govern
ment boards for state support to combine stormwater
runoff control with central sewer system plans is partly
responsible for an upcoming two-day symposium on
the topic, organizers say.
Government officials, policy-makers, scientists, en
gineers and citizens will meet Dec. 2-3 at the Coastline
Convention Center in Wilmington to discuss managing
point and nonpoint sources of pollution as part of a
coastal growth management program.
Sponsors include Brunswick County, the N.C.
Coastal Federation, Southeastern N.C. Watermen s
Association, the Coastal Environmental Management
Program at Duke Univ., the Greater Wilm. Chamber of
Commerce. UNC Sea Grant. UNC Wilm.. the Water
Resources Research Institute of UNC, the Wilmington
Cape Fear Homebuilders Assoc. and the N.C. Depart,
of Environment, Health and Natural Resources.
The event has been titled "Integrated Coastal
Wastewater Management in North Carolina: Protecting
Coastal Water Quality Through Planning for Cen
tralized Sewers and Growth Management."
The nine governments who asked for Governor Jim
Hunt's help were led by Sunset Beach and Calabash,
the original participants in the South Brunswick Water
and Sewer Authority which hopes to build a sewer sys
tem and eventually to integrate it with a stormwater
Other Brunswick County towns, plus the county
commissioners and county health board, have endorsed
the concept and asked for state funds to study the feasi
bility of developing an integrated regional sewer and
stormwater project to serve as a model for rapidly
growing coastal communities suffering degradation of
their shellfish waters.
In a letter to Governor Jim Hunt several months
ago, the board stated, "Due to the extremely fragile
shellfish water resource we have, we feel that stormwa
ter runoff control must be integrally addressed simulta
neously with sanitary waste disposal for us to achieve
the desired level of environmental protection."
The upcoming two-day symposium will also serve
as the third meeting of the governor's newly appointed
Coastal Futures Committee. The CFC has been charged
by Governor Jim Hunt to "evaluate the state's coastal
management program and offer recommendations to
strengthen protection of coastal resources through ad
ministrative and legislative changes in the Coastal Area
The CFC's final report is to be presented to the gov
ernor by September IW4. The committee, which in
cludes Eugene Tomlinson of Southport. chairman of the
N.C. Coastal Resources Commission, says it will focus
its initial efforts on the need for water quality protec
tion through "more effective growth management."
Tomlinson has said he sees a need for change
"through an increased emphasis on the land use plan
ning process with particular attention being given to the
carrying capacity of development-proposed areas, and
the cumulative impact or effects of proposed projects."
He also said amendments might be required to the
state's Coastal Area Management Act (C'AMA) to
strengthen land use plans to include carrying capacities
in such areas as water, sewer, public safety and roads.
The symposium will include two full days of pre
sentations and discussions to "explore how to develop
wastewater and stormwater management strategies in
the context of each other so that coastal water quality is
protected," its brochure states.
Topics will include the effectiveness of traditional
approaches to protecting coastal water quality and the
legal mandates for doing so; the relationship between
population density, land use patterns and coastal water
quality; and the effectiveness of stormwater manage
ment strategies in protecting coastal water quality.
Scheduled presentations include:
?'Why Traditional Strategies for Water Man
agement are Not Working," by Dr. Richard T. Barber.

ber. N.C. Environmental Management Commission;
?'Ix-gal Imperatives for Effective Integrated Coas

Varnamtown Opposing Quarry At Southport
BY DOUG RUTTER
Worried about possible damage to
the environment, Varnamtown has
joined several (it tier local communi
ties in opposing Martrn Marietta Ag
gregates' plan to open a limestone
quarry near Southport.
Alderman Will Mumford is ex
pected to draft a formal resolution
listing the waterfront community's
concerns as part of a motion ap
proved by the full board Monday
Town officials said they want to
see an environmental impact study
on the proposal and want the com
pany to hold a public forum before it
is permitted to open the mine.
"They should make sure it's very,
very safe before they allow it,"
Mayor Judy Galloway said. "I think
we all should be concerned from
what we hear."
Martin Marietta hopes to open the
limestone quarry on a 1,000-acre
tract it owns at the intersection of
N.C. 133 and N.C. 87.
Brunswick County Commission
ers last week adopted a resolution
stating their opposition to the pro
posed mine and the issuance of state
and federal permits needed for the
Southport, Caswell Beach, Yau
pon Beach, Long Beach, Boiling
Spring Lakes and Bolivia have
adopted similar resolutions.
Vamamtown officials said Monday
they are worried that the mine could
damage water quality, dry up ground
water supplies, damage roads and
eventually hurt the local economy.
"I certainly think there's enough
question on the impact to prepare a
resolution against this particular op
eration," Mumford said.
Alderman John David Dawson
agreed. "It will have a definite im
pact on the environment," he said.
Board member Ada McDonald
said she was concerned about using
explosives at a mine located near a
known earthquake fault with the
Brunswick Nuclear Plant situated
"A quarry operation is a danger
ous operation," Varnamtown resi
dent Jim Callan said. "A quarry op
eration could affect the well water
within 50 or 100 miles."
