The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District and Horry County are hosting three public meetings to solicit public input as they consider flood risk reduction measures for flood impacts along the Waccamaw River and its tributaries. 

The study will evaluate both structural and nonstructural measures to reduce flood risks to structures, transportation routes and life safety. Primary impact areas have been initially identified based on historical flooding information and include Bucksport, Socastee, City of Conway, Red Bluff, and Longs.

The public is invited to these “open house” meetings to learn more about the Waccamaw River FRM Study and interact with subject-matter experts.
