Folly Beach 2024 Renourishment
Contractors for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Charleston District place material during the renourishment of Folly Beach on June 20, 2024 at Folly Beach, South Carolina. The Folly Beach Renourishment is a beneficial use project that serves three purposes – to renourish Folly Beach for coastal storm damage reduction, dredge the Folly River federal navigation channel, and place material on Bird Key to help reduce erosion on the critical bird habitat. The $18 million project is funded entirely by the Corps of Engineers and will place 1.3 million cubic yards of sand on the beach, equivalent to 130,000 dump trucks. The renourishment is on track to finish before the 2024 peak hurricane season.
