Sand pumping operations for the City of Isle of Palms restoration project are finally underway, the city said in their latest announcement. 

This major coastal protection scheme, worth $11.8 million, is being undertaken by the Oak Brook based dredging contractor Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company (GLDD).

The sand pumping works are set to take place at Dunecrest Lane, Beach Club Villas and possibly Property Owners Beach House, the city said in its statement.

In September 2017, the city held the pre-construction meeting with representatives from the City’s Coastal Engineer, Coastal Science and Engineering, and GLDD.

Last month, an emergency beach survey and assessment of the Isle of Palms shoreline was undertaken to document beach volume changes, escarpment formation, dune erosion and debris.

Weather and maintenance may affect the project’s progress, but the goal remains that the work will be completed by approximately the end of March.
