dc.description.abstract SMITH, KYLE ALLEN. Review of Methods and Policies to Slow Flooding Near Jones County, NC. A flood can be a very costly occurrence. Coastal North Carolina has experienced such events in recent years. Preparing for and preventing major loss from a flood is critical. Many methods have been explored to understand why flooding is occurring more rapidly than ever before. Land use changes, such as urbanization has had an impact, among others. Preventing runoff in the areas where land uses are changing is a growing problem. Clearing rivers and streams of undesirable debris is a constant challenge, particularly after major storm events. New plans such as “Green infrastructure” has become a way to combat the ongoing flooding issues. The “Green infrastructure” is cost effective and makes for a pleasing design. Permeable materials have offered progress in controlling flooding. Continuing forward, policies need to be adopted that would be a guide to action that needs to be taken in the event future disasters occur. en_US
