Myrtle Beach Sea Oats and Sand Dunes

If you’ve been around long enough, as I have, you’ll remember the hoopla over the 1988 Beachfront Management Act, setting limits on oceanfront construction, use of sea walls, replacement of pools and much more, all designed to protect South Carolina shoreline and beaches.
Yesterday the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (“DHEC”) released a report stating the retreat policy is “vague” and “unattainable.” The blue ribbon committee report recommends replacing the 1988 retreat policy with one of “preservation,” as reported in The State newspaper.
