The City of North Myrtle Beach has just released the latest update on their emergency beach renourishment project, saying that the work has now moved from the Cherry Grove section of the city to the Windy Hill section.

“There is still more renourishment work to be done in the Cherry Grove section and the move south for the time being is the contractor’s choice,” the city said in its release.

Sand for this $10.6 million U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) emergency beach fill scheme is being dredged from offshore and piped on to the beach to renourish those sections of beach that do not have adequate protection.

The contractor, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company, works 24 hours a day, seven days a week, usually completing up to 500 feet per day, barring mechanical or weather/sea condition delays, the city stated.

Designed and paid for by the USACE, the sole purpose of the project is protect structures from storm surge and/or high tide. The USACE designed the emergency project according to its guidelines and regulations.
