Folly Beach Renourishment Progresses Well (USA)

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, is currently working on a beach renourishment project to help provide protection against storm damage to people and property on Folly Beach, South Carolina.

About 1.5 million cubic yards of sand will be placed along the coast and 5,34 miles of beach will be renourished.

A $30.7 million contract (with 15 percent cost-share from City of Folly Beach) was awarded to Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company, LLC, of Oakbrook, Ill.

The beach renourishment is being conducted as part of a 50 year agreement with the City of Folly Beach, and is the first periodic renourishment since 2005.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers anticipates the project will take from two to three months to complete.
