Preparations Underway for South Island Emergency Beach Fill

Preliminary activities associated with the South Island Emergency Beach Fill Project are set to start in the upcoming weeks, the Town of Hilton Head Island said in its latest release.

In particular, pre-project surveys of both the beach and offshore borrow sites will be conducted, the town said.

Both land and water based survey crews will be present and active within the project limits and offshore at the Barrett Shoal borrow site.

The mobilization of equipment and requisite pipeline will take place during mid-August. The project limits extend along the beachfront from near Brown Pelican Road to near East Beach Lagoon Drive within Sea Pines.

The initial project schedule indicates that the placement of sand should start August 27, 2017, at South Beach, near the Tower Beach Club in the Sea Pines Resort. Work is expected to advance northward toward Beach Lagoon Drive.

Many factors, including weather influences and mechanical capabilities will likely affect the absolute schedule, the town said.
