The Ocean Outfall Projects for the Cities of Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach in South Carolina is an ongoing project to reduce beach contamination by better managing stormwater. In Myrtle Beach, pipes currently drain stormwater runoff onto the beach at several locations. The ocean outfall projects will collect water from existing beach pipes and divert it under the beach and more than 1,000 feet into the ocean. This will help to prevent high bacteria levels near the shore. WPC, A Terracon Company, was retained to perform geotechnical explorations at the proposed sites of three separate ocean outfall projects. WPC's services included near-shore and offshore subsurface investigations using conventional soil borings and Piezocone Penetration Test (CPTu) soundings, analysis and evaluation of test data, and geotechnical engineering recommendations regarding construction of the outfalls.
