Dr. Stanley R. Riggs to Speak on NC’s Offshore Oil and Gas


Let’s protect and preserve our beautiful oceans and ensure that our future generations will have the quality of life they all deserve!


Join Dr. Stanley R. Riggs, research professor from the Department of Geological Sciences at East Carolina University, for a lecture and discussion on offshore drilling. This has been an increasingly hot topic in the Town of Swansboro, which houses a good portion of our White Oak river. As we get closer to the Town of Swansboro’s November meeting to vote on offshore drilling this is a good opportunity to learn some of the details of its effects on water quality and aquatic ecosystems. Let me know if you can make it. I will be attending the 2015 North Carolina Coastal Federation Water Supply Summit all day the following Wednesday, October 28th so I would appreciate any information others can get from this lecture in particular. Feel free to send me any information you gain that is integral to our local water systems through our contact page. Hope you can make it!
