On October 21, both dredgers to be used in the Cherry Grove Dredging Project were launched and additional equipment was delivered to the staging site, according to the City of North Myrtle Beach’s latest announcement.

Orion Marine, the contractor for the project, has already assembled around 16,000 feet of pipeline that will be used to transport dredged material to the spoils basin.

A large crane was used to launch the dredgers and the small barges that will carry booster pumps.

Beginning today, the discharge pipe for this dredging program will be installed underneath Little River Neck Road.

The casing will be left in place for future dredging operations.

The installation process was delayed by the hurricane. The South Carolina Department of Transportation had to put a hold on all encroachment work in state rights of way because all of their personnel were tied up dealing with hurricane and flooding issues.

The stop work order has now been lifted.
