Million Dollar Dike

Record #:
The Tadmore Drainage Dike in Newland Township, about twenty miles west of Elizabeth City, has saved farmers in the area millions of dollars since its construction in 1956. After heavy rains the farmers partially close the floodgates permitting most of the water to run alongside the dike and flow into the Pasquotank River. Before the dike, the low-lying area would become extremely flooded and devastate crops.
