South Waccamaw Canal Dredging Project on the Table

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, recently received an application for the Department of the Army permit related to the proposed dredging of the South Waccamaw Canal.

According to the Corps, the project is located west of South Waccamaw Drive, near the town of Murrells Inlet, Horry and Georgetown Counties, South Carolina.

The project purpose is to provide year round boating access during all tidal cycles for private residencies on the creek and public access to the creek.

The proposed maintenance dredging includes removal of approximately 60,000 cubic yards of material from 2.2 miles of the canal. The proposed dredge depth is -5.0 feet Mean Low Water (MLW) with a 1-foot allowable overdepth for a total dredge depth of -6.0 feet MLW.

The dredged area will extend from the face of the existing docks 30 feet into the channel. The proposed material will be dredged by a hydraulic cutterhead suction dredge,” added the Corps.

Deadline for sending comments on the proposed work is March 1, 2018.
