Leave Folly Beach park alone

Folly Beach County Park is rapidly eroding. We agree with the Coastal Conservation League who opposes spending 3 million dollars on a groin which would “partly dam the flow of sand in the current along the shore,” according to the Post & Courier article Dispute between conservationists, officials could doom Folly Beach park (December 12, 2012). They explain: “The Folly park’s erosion is partly due to sand-flow disruption by the Charleston jetties, a problem that exacerbates erosion all along the five miles of Folly Beach.” Building a groin to protect Folly Beach County Park will rob sand from another location and further erosion elsewhere.
