Due to erosion, the Atlantic shoreface of Folly Island was nourished in 1991 using material dredged from the Folly River. Ongoing erosion, combined with an active hurricane season in 2004, resulted in another renourishment effort in 2005. The 2005 renourishment project included the placement of approximately two million cubic yards of fill on approximately 8.0 km of Folly Beach extending from the former U.S Coast Guard base on the northeast end through the Charleston County Park on the southwest end. This report gives the details of that project.
