Army Corps of Engineers Receives Funding for Beach Renourishment in the City of North Myrtle

USACE BEACH (12-2-2022)

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The federal government plans to spend more than $13 million to conduct the periodic nourishment of the City of North Myrtle Beach Coastal Storm Risk Management (CSRM) project. Overall $56M has been allocated to the Myrtle Beach CSRM project. 

Wes Wilson, a project manager for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), announced the funding this week to North Myrtle Beach City Manager, Mike Mahaney. The funding will replenish sand along approximately nine miles of North Myrtle Beach coastline and is part of a larger USACE project to pump sand onto almost twenty-seven miles of Grand Strand beaches.

Work will involve dredging sand from offshore borrow sites and placing it on the beaches to construct a full periodic renourishment. The total volume of sand included in the project won’t be known until the City’s beach survey data is available to determine the current sand deficit. The project will involve widening the beach, rebuilding new dunes, planting of dune vegetation, and installation of sand fencing.

The start date for the renourishment is uncertain and won’t be known until the Army Corps of Engineers can finalize the project’s engineering and award construction to a contractor.
