Description: North Carolina State University (NCSU) Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering will assist with improvements and modernization of infrastructure through animal waste lagoon closure, site remediation, and habitat restoration in Back Bay NWR, Virginia Beach, VA. The lagoons have the potential to negatively impact water quality in the Nanney Creek and Beggars Bridge Creek watersheds and they pose a concern for human health and safety. The lagoons also impair migratory bird and wildlife habitat and prohibit public access and recreational opportunities in and near the property. The project will improve water quality and wildlife habitat while providing enhanced recreational opportunity for the public.
