Shoal manipulation as an effective solution to site specific beach management, examples from three South Carolina beaches.

Soft engineering solutions are the current standard for addressing coastal erosion in the US. In South Carolina,
beach nourishment from offshore sand deposits and navigation channels has mostly replaced construction of seawalls and groins, which were common occurrences in earlier decades. Soft engineering solutions typically provide a more natural product than hard solutions, and also eliminate negative impacts to adjacent areas which are often associated with hard solutions. A soft engineering solution which may be underutilized in certain areas is shoal manipulation. (PDF contains 4 pages)
