Bathymetric Mapping of the Waccamaw River, Horry County, South Carolina

The Burroughs & Chapin Center for Marine and Wetland Studies conducted bathymetric mapping of the Waccamaw River (Oct. – Dec. 2010) from Enterprise Landing to Red Bluff Road in Horry County, South Carolina. Mapping consisted of a combination of multibeam and single beam data to characterize river morphology to assist Horry County and the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in managing the river and adjacent lands. The data was merged with previously collected bathymetric data (2009) from Enterprise Landing to the Horry-Georgetown County line to provide a continuous dataset from the Horry-Georgetown County line through Red Bluff Rd.
