The Town of Surfside Beach, SC, said in its announcement that their beach renourishment scheme is being put on hold at the moment.

According to the latest project update, sand pumping operations have stopped due to a mechanical issue with the pump station.

“Beach fill will resume when the problem is resolved. There is no estimated time frame for resolution,” the town said.

The Surfside Beach renourishment scheme, conducted by Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company (GLDD), started earlier this week.

Project overview

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, recently awarded a $26.3 million contract for the Myrtle Beach Storm Damage Reduction Project to Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company, LLC, which will place approximately 1.2 million cubic yards of material on North Myrtle Beach and Garden City and Surfside Beaches.

This project is funded through federal emergency beach rehabilitation funding from Hurricane Matthew, along with cost-shared construction funding appropriated through Congress.

The contractor will work 24 hours a day, seven days a week during construction, usually completing up to 500 feet per day, barring mechanical or weather/sea condition delays.
