Abstract:

This report is the result of a small navigation study conducted at the request of Charleston County to explore the feasibility of dredging several shoals which have developed in Folly River and Stono Inlet and are hindering navigation there. The material contained in this report is organized to give the reader an understanding of 1 the nature of the problems involved and the type of setting in which they occur 2 the choices that were available in formulating different plans of solution 3 how and why the selected plan was chosen 4 the overall effect of the selected plan in various areas of concern. The purpose of this study was 1 to determine the need for and advisability of providing and maintaining a shallow draft navigation channel from upstream docking areas on Folly River and Folly Creek through Stono River Inlet to the Atlantic Ocean off Charleston County 2 to determine what, if any, other water and related land resource needs exist in the area 3 to determine what different management measures could be taken and 4 to select those which would best address those needs.
