ICYMI: Tell Me About It Tuesdays with Dr. Rachel Noble

Posted on January 12th, 2022

Sound Rivers’ virtual science series, Tell Me About It Tuesdays, returns in the new year with “North Carolina’s Complicated Relationship with Stormwater.”

Dr. Rachel Noble talks about increased coastal development, recreational use of high priority estuaring and coastal waters, increasing King Tide events, and unpredictable stormwater discharge patterns, which all threaten North Carolina’s water quality.  During periods of time when tidal inundation and storm periods intersect, there is serious risk for standing floodwaters, as well as rampant contamination of coastal waters. Dr. Noble’s laboratory has been working for over a decade with coastal towns to identify, prioritize and remediate wastewater and stormwater infrastructure. There is much more to be done! Noble is a distinguished professor of marine science at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill’s Institute of Marine Sciences. Watch the video below!
