Officials to Discuss Murrells Inlet Dredging Project in October

The Georgetown County Public Services Department has scheduled a public meeting in the Murrells Inlet community to present plans for an inlet dredging project expected to begin this fall.

The meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, October 17, at the Murrells Inlet Community Center.

County officials and others working on the project, including engineers, will be on hand to review plans for the project and answer questions from the public.

There will also be an opportunity for public input.

The project will address the dredging of the Federal Navigation Channel belonging to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The dredged material will be placed on Garden City Beach and behind the jetties at Huntington Beach State Park, where significant erosion is occurring.

Georgetown County will concurrently dredge the access channels the county is required to maintain.

An option was also given to private landowners to partner with Georgetown County in this portion of the dredging effort.

This project is funded through Georgetown County’s Capital Project Sales Tax, which went into effect in May 2015, following a public vote.
