This is the latest from the Army Corp of Engineers Website


The Folly Beach Shore Protection Project is a collaborative effort between the local sponsor, the City of Folly Beach, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. In addition, a Charleston County Parks and Recreation Department has been a close partner.

The original project was authorized by Federal legislation in Section 501 of the Water Resources Development Act of 1986. For the current nourishment, there has been additional funding by Congress for emergency preparedness, response, and recovery through Public Law 84-99. This appropriation was provided as a result of the severity of the 2004 hurricane season to replace sand eroded during severe weather events

The Corps awarded the $12 million project this March to Weeks Marine of Covington, La.

The placement of sand on the front beach of Folly Island, South Carolina this year (2005) is a periodic re-nourishment of the existing shore protection project. The recommended plan provides for re-nourishment of 28,200 linear feet (5.34 linear miles) of shoreline. A berm will be constructed with a top width of 15 feet and an elevation of 9.0 feet national geodetic vertical datum (NGVD). The project extends from just below the U.S. Coast Guard Base, and includes the Charleston County Park on the west end of Folly Island. The exact quantity of sand that will be placed on the beach during re-nourishment will be dependent on the existing beach profile at the time of construction; however, based on expected erosion rates, it is estimated that more than two million cubic yards of beach quality sand will be placed on the beach.

Weeks Marine?s hydraulic cutter head dredge will transport sand from an offshore borrow site through a pipeline. The pipeline will come ashore at the east end of the washout and run parallel with the beach. Sand from the offshore source will be pumped along the roughly 28,000 linear feet of the project and will be discharged as slurry (sand and water). Sections will be graded by land-based equipment, such as bulldozers, articulated front-end loaders, and other equipment as necessary to achieve the desired beach profile.

The protection of sea turtles is a major concern during any beach nourishment activity, but especially during the summer months as this coincides with the turtles nesting season. Additional personnel have been provided and protocols established for the protection of this resource.

Additional information, such as a project map, project updates and a timeline will be posted on to this web page as it becomes available.

If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Alicia Gregory, Public Affairs Officer, with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District at (843) 329-8123.

im not sure what your asking for.

if you are asking for the picture to be removed and you are associated with follyturtles.com, I will be happy to remove them.

Otherwise the pictures are showing up just fine and don't need to be fixed.

please elaborate,

Mac Ridgeway

Thanks for post the pictures. We own a house down there and it is nice to see what is happening on the beach. I do have a question. In the past the dune was kind of a sharp drop off from the beach. Now have they pumped the sand up and grated it level with the dune then just sloped it down to the water?

I think that they come behind and build a burm where the dune line should be. Then they plant it with sea-oats.

These are pics from the top deck of the house that I am selling for a client at 1111 East Arctic as of Yesterday.

Many thanks for all the great photos.

I am coming to Folly on August 27th and staying in a house on the 1300 block of East Ashley. Looking at the photos you have posted from east Arctic, am I correct in assuming that the major part of the heavy machinery work is done on the Ashey portion of the beach ?

Any info would be greatly appreciated

You will be happy to know that you will not have heavy machinery on your section of beach.

You will have a large pipe about half-way down your beach.
