Summer is finally here, and for many of us it means heading to the coast to spend some much needed fun in the sun and surf. DHEC wants to help you stay prepared and informed this summer.
Before you take off for the shores, check out some of our latest coastal apps:
- Beach Access: Connecting S.C. beachgoers to over 620 public access points along our coast, the Beach Access app provides visitors with key information about a location’s amenities, including parking, restrooms, handicap accessibility, showers and more.
- MarinaMate: In addition to listing marina locations statewide, the MarinaMate app provides mariners with information on available services, including where you can access shore power hookups and dispose of on-board sewage.
- MyCoast: South Carolina: Used to visualize the impact of coastal hazards and to enhance awareness among decision-makers and stakeholders, MyCoast is a portal citizens can use to assist DHEC in the collection and analysis of pictures and data relating to coastal events, including King Tides and coastal storms.
- South Carolina Beachfront Jurisdiction And Adopted Erosion Rates: Providing easily accessible information to current and prospective property owners, the S.C. Beachfront Jurisdiction app offers an overview of beachfront jurisdictional lines, beach zones and adopted erosion rates on a variety of base maps. It also provides users with access to survey packets by specific beach area, which contain specific line coordinates, survey monument locations and additional background information.
