The basin plan for the Lumber River Basin was finalized on July 9, 2001. The Draft Lumber River Basin Plan (dated December 27, 2000) was presented at Final Scoping Meetings, which were held on January 4, 2001, at the Brunswick County Emergency Operations Center in the Town of Bolivia, and on January 5, 2001, at the A.B. Gibson Education Building in the City of Laurinburg. All impacted counties and communities were invited to the Final Scoping Meetings and were provided a final opportunity for input. The Final Lumber River Basin Plan contains specific information regarding comments that were received during the Final Scoping Meetings and how the Draft Basin Plan was revised and why. It also summarizes the scoping phase, outlines how the base maps and topography has been acquired in the basin, proposes engineering methods by which each flooding source reach will be studied, and describes the process and schedule for completing the map production. The scope of work presented in the Final Basin Plan will be completed by the State's Floodplain Mapping Contractor, Greenhorne & O'Mara.
