Surveying, Dune Repairs, Dune Walkover Stabilization Activities In North Myrtle Beach
Posted by Century 21 Thomas Blogger | Thursday, October 15, 2015

If you notice surveying occurring on the beach in North Myrtle Beach, Coastal Carolina University personnel are taking measurements to help determine sand loss from the recent storms. The resulting information will be submitted to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as part of the formal process the City must follow as it continues to seek emergency beach renourishment funds.
You may also see City personnel working on the beach with equipment in areas where dune walkovers were damaged by the storms, and sections of dunes were severely breached. Personnel will be moving sand up from the low tide beach to place under and around damaged dune walkovers, and they will also use low tide beach sand to fill in some severely breached sections of dunes.
The City is required to do the work as part of its formal agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to maintain the federal beach renourishment project within its jurisdiction. The Corps is aware that the work is being accomplished and, as part of the process, the City will document the work it is performing and provide the Corps with a report.
