In partnership with South Carolina Ports Authority, the project sponsor, and countless others, today Charleston District is deepening the harbor to a historic depth of 52 feet, giving Charleston the deepest harbor on the east coast. The new depth — achieved by the end of next year — will also enable the world's largest ships safe passage into Charleston any time, at any tide.
The Charleston District is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2021. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers presence in Charleston started in 1821 with the first projects and a permanent office was established in 1871. Learn more about the history of the Charleston District and our plans for this year.
