Thomas & Hutton was hired by Daufuskie Island Properties, LLC to perform engineering design services for Bloody Point Cemetery Revetment.
The project includes surveying, design, permitting, contract administration, and construction administration for a 5,500 foot long revetment along the banks of the Bloody Point Cemetery on the Mungen Creek on Daufuskie Island, South Carolina. Increasing erosive activity along the critical line began to damage and further threaten existing grave sites. The revetment was designed through coordination to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (OCRM) to provide repair and reinforcement to an eroding shoreline.
Thomas & Hutton was able to assess the cause of the erosion, develop a solution through coordination with owners, regulatory agencies, and governmental authorities.
