SCDNR News Release

SCDNR News Release | Explore Pawleys Island | Scoop.it

"Considered one of the most  outstanding gifts to wildlife conservation in North America, the Tom Yawkey  Wildlife Center was willed to DNR in 1976 by the late Tom Yawkey. After its  transfer to DNR, the Center was dedicated as a Heritage Preserve by the South  Carolina Heritage Trust, a program that works to preserve natural diversity in  South Carolina.  The Yawkey Wildlife Center, which includes North Island, South Island, Sand  Island and most of Cat Island, is composed of 31 square miles of marsh, managed  wetlands, forest openings, ocean beach, longleaf pine forest and maritime  forest."

 

This area is also very close to the site of a proposed midstream anchorage transfer facility in Winyah Bay currently open for public comment.  What are your thoughts on the this proposal?  Public comments can must received in 15 days to COE & 30 days by SCDHEC. 

 

CHARLESTON DISTRICT, CORPS OF ENGINEERS

1949 Industrial Park Road, Room 140

Conway, South Carolina 29526

and the

S.C. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL

OFFICE OF OCEAN AND COASTAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

1362 McMillan Avenue, Suite 400

Charleston, South Carolina 29405

REGULATORY DIVISION 09 MAY 2012

Refer to: P/N #2012-00322-3IH

 

The proposed work consists of the construction of a midstream anchorage facility to

accommodate ocean-going vessels to load and unload cargo from barges. The proposed work will allow ocean-going vessels and barges to tie up to the proposed facility in Winyah Bay and then have barge operations to link up to the land based terminal facilities located in Georgetown.

Vessels moored at the proposed facility would likely be loaded and unloaded through the usage of clam shell buckets or conveyor belts. The applicant stated that there would be no operations directly over any water body. The target cargo would consist of drybulk commodities with a special focus on biomass. The transfer facility will consist of installing eight (8) ship mooring buoys and

sixteen (16) barge mooring buoys within a project area of 514’ x 6,000’ (70.79 acres) running

along the Winyah Bay Entrance Channel to the east. Each of the buoys will be connected, via

steel chain, to a large solid concrete anchor with a pad eye on it to which the anchor chain will be

attached via a shackle. The 24 concrete anchors will be approximately 7’ long x 7’ wide x 7’ high.

The concrete anchors will constitute placement of fill material in approximately 0.03 acres of

Waters of the United States. The buoy chains will be approximately 65’ long and have a lateral

drift radius (in any direction) of 57’. The maximum vessel draft to utilize the facility will be 27’. The

applicant stated that no dredging will be required and that the buoys will not encroach on the 125’

setback of the Federal Channel. The applicant further stated that the anchorage system was

chosen because it is the most minimally intrusive method of introducing ocean-going vessels in

and around the Georgetown Harbor. The applicant offered no compensatory mitigation for the

proposed work. The purpose of the project is to provide mooring for ocean-going vessels for

loading and unloading commercial cargo within the Georgetown Harbor.

 

If there are any questions concerning this public notice, please contact Rob Huff at 843-365-4239.
