The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, has just unveiled the first images from the Myrtle Beach storm damage reduction project.

According to the Corps, the sand is being pumped onto the beach from offshore and shaped by heavy equipment at Surfside Beach.

This $34.8 million contract for the Myrtle Beach Storm Damage Reduction Project has been awarded to Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company, LLC.

During the project, GLDD will pump approximately 1.4 million cubic yards of material on Myrtle, North Myrtle, Garden City and Surfside Beaches.
