Town of Holden Beach Dredging Operations Delayed

Town of Holden Beach, NC, has just announced that the start of dredging operations related to their Central Reach Project will be postponed for one week.

The anticipated initial sand placement has been delayed to a more realistic start date of December 21st – 23rd due to rough seas this past weekend wreaking havoc on the ocean tow of the pipe raft from Charleston, the Town said in its latest announcement.

The main goal of this scheme, undertaken by Weeks Marine, is to provide beach restoration along eroding sections of the Holden Beach shoreline sufficient to maintain the island’s restored protective and recreational beachfront and natural dune system.

The proposed plan includes dredging (via a hopper dredger) of approximately 1.3 million cubic yards of material from an offshore borrow area located 1.8 to 3.0 miles offshore of Oak Island.

This material will then be placed onto approximately 22,000 ft (4.18 miles) of shoreline in Holden Beach, Brunswick County.

The estimated cost of this beachfill program is $15 million and the dredge window is November 30th – March 31st, according to the Town of Holden Beach.
