City of Myrtle Beach

The 4th Avenue North Ocean Outfall project eliminated nine outfalls that discharged stormwater from an 87-acre commercial and residential drainage basin onto the beach. The outfall includes pre-cast concrete pipes that extend approximately 1,400 linear feet into the ocean and tie into a stormwater collection system constructed beneath a pedestrian boardwalk adjacent to the beach. The outfall project was completed in 2016 and is expected to meet the city’s goal of maintaining high water quality and reducing beach erosion. This project received US EPA’s Performance and Innovation in the SRF Creating Environmental Success (PISCES) recognition in 2017.
