Drainage Maintenance Update

Drainage Maintenance Update

Our Public Works employees have been busy with several drainage maintenance projects. This work typically includes removing debris and sediment, clearing pipe obstructions, and using high pressure water jetting to clear storm drains and similar structures. 

Check out the drainage maintenance map  on our web site for more detail on the work.  

We're now focused on returning to areas that need additional work. At this time, we're removing sediment in Zone 1 near South Memorial Avenue. Work is expected to continue throughout town over the next few weeks. 

If you have questions pertaining to the drainage maintenance work, please call the Public Works department at (252) 441-1122.

Water Line Maintenance Flushing Schedule 2020

Annual Water Line Flushing
Taking Place 

The annual maintenance flushing of Nags Head's water system is underway. This work, which we know can be inconvenient at times, is critical to the health of the distribution system. Flushing typically takes place between 8:30 am and 4:00 pm.

When we are flushing the water lines in your area, you may observe the following:
  • low water pressure
  • no water pressure
  • discolored water
In addition, please raise the lever on any automatic ice makers and check the water quality prior to washing clothes or running automatic dishwashers.

The schedule may change due to emergencies and other workload priorities.

If you have any questions, please call Nags Head's Public Works Department at 252-441-1122.

Outer Banks Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan Draft

Public Comment Needed on Outer Banks Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan

We need your help! For the past 10 months, Dare and Currituck Counties, as well as Dare's municipalities, including Nags Head, have been preparing an update to the 2015 hazard mitigation plan.  This planning process is required to remain eligible for federal FEMA disaster funding and to help the Outer Banks region to become more disaster-resistant through implementation of sound mitigation projects.  This updated plan focuses primarily on natural hazards such as coastal storms, flooding, tornadoes, etc., but also includes some technological (human-caused) hazards.

The public is encouraged to review and comment on the draft 2020 Outer Banks Region Hazard Mitigation plan by going to and providing your comments and feedback by January 31, 2020.

If you have any comments or questions regarding Nags Head's section of the plan (see Annex G), please call our Planning and Development Department at 252-441-7016.

Make it easy for public safety to find you: ensure your address is easy to see. for real-time traffic information.
