The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, has just released these beautiful photos from the Folly Beach renourishment project. 

“The project has been a huge success in reducing risk to the people and property behind the dunes. We are on track to finish pumping this week,” said USACE in their latest project update.

The Charleston District is concurrently renourishing both Folly Beach and the Grand Strand, consisting of Myrtle, North Myrtle, and Garden City/Surfside beaches, in order to minimize the impacts to people and infrastructure during a storm event like South Carolina has seen in each of the previous three years.

The $10 million Folly Beach project is being funded through federal emergency beach rehabilitation funding from Hurricanes Matthew and Irma. Through the project, approximately 750,000 cubic yards of material are being placed on Folly Beach.
