North Myrtle Beach Stormwater Outfall Program

This is the sixth Outfall project and costs nearly $35 million.

Construction kicked off on the North Myrtle beach Stormwater Outfall Program.

The 16th and 18th North Avenue beach accesses are closed off as the project is being conducted. It is expected to take nearly one year to complete.

This is the sixth Outfall project and costs nearly $35 million.

The goal of the program is to remove drainage pipes from the active beach in order to reduce inland flooding, damage to federal beach re-nourishment project, swimmer illness, pollutants, as well as improve safety on the public beach.

By moving the storm drain discharge further offshore, the city is attempting to prevent beach erosion and maintain healthy water quality in swimming zones.
