The City of North Myrtle Beach has applied to the South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control’s Office of Ocean & Coastal Resource Management (OCRM) for authorization under OCRM General Permit 17-SMD to place more sand onto the dune system fronting the Atlantic Ocean.

The new locations include areas between 41st Avenue South and 45th Avenue South, between 37th Avenue North and 42nd Avenue North, and between 61st Avenue North and 63rd Avenue North in North Myrtle Beach.

The city is nearing completion of a previously permitted dune restoration project from 45th Avenue South to 48th Avenue South and from 42nd Avenue North to 55th Avenue North.

Sand used in the second dune restoration project will come from the same dredging spoils basin located on Little River Neck Road that supplied sand for the first project. Sand that is currently in the spoils basin is from the Cherry Grove dredging project.

Prior to dredging the canals, sand located in the canals was tested and found to be compatible with existing dune and beach sand.
