North Myrtle Beach to Get New Sand

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, has received $10.6 million in funding to accomplish an emergency beach renourishment project in the city of North Myrtle Beach.

The city said in its announcement said that current indications are that the funding will not require a cost sharing by the city, however, a Cooperation Agreement will have to be entered into between U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the city.

The city will have to pay separately for dune reconstruction, sea oats planting and other associated dune work.

“This is great news for the residents of North Myrtle Beach, the State of South Carolina and the Charleston District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,” said North Myrtle Beach Mayor Marilyn Hatley.

“The North Myrtle Beach City Council and many others have been working hard toward this goal since Hurricane Joaquin hit our shores. The severe damage incurred from Hurricane Matthew only made the need for this project even more immediate.”

Mayor Hatley added that they expect to start renourishment this year and the timeline of putting out bids and bringing in dredgers will depend on the Army Corps of Engineers.
