Renourishment is on everyone's mind on Folly Beach. More than half way through the renourishment, it is becoming very obvious that not as much sand is being pumped as the previous two renourishments. Plus, recent storms took away most of the sand that has been placed on the beach.
Word on the street is that the contractor is having a hard time finding sand. In addition, the sand that is being used is of low quality. The renourishment is supposed to happen every 8 to 10 years. But, I don't see how this renourishment can accomplish that goal. I think it's time to plan for the next renourishment, now.
