Beginning Monday January 16, 2017 the Town's subcontractor, Eastman Aggregates will begin tilling those portions of the Island's beach which were recently renourished. The tilling is a requirement of the beach renourishment project permits and is done to ensure suitable nesting habitat for sea turtles. The portions of the beach affected by this work are South Beach between markers 12 and 20, South Forest Beach to the Folly between markers 53A and 97, adjacent to Port Royal Plantation between markers 117 and 123, along the Port Royal Sound beach between markers 124 and 130 and at Mitchelville Beach. The proposed work hours are between 7:00 AM and 5:30 PM; all work is expected to be complete within 7-10 days.

Additional Beach Renourishment Project information is available at the Town's website: www.hiltonheadislandsc.gov
