On April 11, 2012, The S.C. Supreme Court ruled ownership belongs to the State of S.C.


If that decision is not overturned, the City of North Myrtle Beach plans to dredge. However, best case scenario is dredging will not begin until the fall of 2014 and will likely involve a special assessment tax district in the area to help pay for dredging.


If dredging is not completed, rental properties along the channels could lose their appeal to vacationers causing property values to decline.


Meanwhile, until the dredging occurs, many boaters must time their trips with the high tide.
