Comments Invited on Surfside Beach Nourishment Scheme

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, is currently involved in the planning phase of a beach nourishment effort in the Grand Strand (Myrtle Beach) of Horry County, South Carolina.

USACE said that the authorized project requires the construction of separate protective beach in three separate reaches, North Myrtle Beach (Reach 1), Myrtle Beach (Reach 2) and Garden City/Surfside Beach (Reach 3).

The total project reach is 25.3 miles.

Preliminary investigations of the quantity of sand required to rebuild the construction template reveal that about 700,000 cubic yards of sand from the Surfside borrow site will be placed along Garden City and Surfside Beach.

It is likely that a portion of the project will use sand from the outer continental shelf (OCS) and a portion will come from inside the OCS boundary.

USACE intends to request a noncompetitive lease from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) for OCS sand from the Surfside borrow area.

USACE and BOEM have prepared a supplemental EA to communicate new environmental information and update the coordination between USACE, the public and resource agencies.

Comments on the draft EA will be accepted through June 9th, 2016.
