New stormwater project in Myrtle Beach set to begin March 15

Construction begins shortly on a new stormwater project in Myrtle Beach that will remove four additional drainage pipes from the sand between 25th and 27th Avenues South. A contractor will install 1,110 feet of header pipe parallel to the dunes. The new pipe will be connected to the deepwater ocean outfall at 25th Avenue South and pick up the drainage for those two blocks. See the attached diagram. As a result, four pipes will be removed from the beach when the work is complete. Look for mobilization to occur next week, followed by construction on March 15. The $156,000 project should be completed by April 30.
