The beach renourishment project is just about complete!  This year, Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand have received millions of cubic yards of sand to replenish what Mother Nature has taken away.  Actually, some storms bring sand onto the beach, while others take sand away.  And a few just move the sand around.  This renourishment is the first since 1998 and is being managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  The Grand Strand anticipates renourishment every eight to 10 years, and the last one held up extremely well.  Myrtle Beach's annual erosion rate is less than half a foot, so we have a very stable beach.  The renourishment contractor has been working around the clock, and the photos below give some idea of how the beach looked before, during and after.  Thanks to the renourishment, we have a wider, deeper and better beach for all to enjoy.
