MAA Issue / Strategy Management, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to assess the detailed impacts of sea level rise at the Dare County Range. The report should assess the likely impacts of sea level rise. Lead Primary Partner: NC Division of Coastal Management Other Partners: NC Division of Coastal Management, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, The Nature Conservancy CA-1B DCR Coordination MAA Develop Long-Range Plan for Sea-Level Rise at the Dare County Range Long-Term      On-Going      Develop a long-range strategic plan for mitigating impacts of sea-level rise to preserve future flexibility for weapons delivery events and siting of impact areas, and mission capabilities at the Dare County Range based on analysis developed in Strategy CA-1. Incorporate analysis and quantifiable impacts of projected real property loss on mission capability and capacity and mitigation strategies. Primary Partners: US Navy, Air Force Civil Engineer Center CA-1C DCR Coordination MAA Continue to Pursue Hydrology Restoration Projects for Living Shorelines Continue to identify and pursue partnering opportunities for hydrology restoration projects that reinforce salt marsh ecosystems and protect shorelines from erosion associated with wave energy, storm surges and tides that would otherwise increase shoreline susceptibility to sea level rise and ultimately reduce inland inundation at the Dare County Range. The benefits of these hydrology restoration projects also provide valuable natural habitats for waterfowl and bird populations addressing the issues BIO-1 and BIO-2.
