Murrells Inlet Dredge Application Submitted

Georgetown County is seeking a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to dredge two marinas, five channels, and an area around a public boat ramp in South Carolina.

According to the Charleston District notice, the permit is for maintenance dredging of the Parsonage Creek and Main Creek at a location southeast of U.S. Highway 17 Business.

This includes areas within the Crazy Sisters Marina and Marsh View Marina, around the SC DNR public boat ramp, Marsh Walk Channel and four other adjacent channels located in Murrells Inlet, Georgetown County.

In detail, the work consists of dredging 52,000 cubic yards of material from within approximately 7.88 acres of tidal waters from both Main Creek and Parsonage Creek.

The proposed material will be dredged by a hydraulic cutterhead suction dredge and transferred via pipeline to a nearby upland Confined Disposal Facility (CDF), or processed through a
dewatering system staged on a nearby undeveloped parcel.

The project purpose, as stated by the applicant, is to provide year round boating access during all tidal cycles for marinas, public boat ramp, and commercial businesses offering waterside access.
