GARDEN CITY, S.C. (WMBF) - Residents of Garden City will soon see significant relief in flooding after hurricanes and king tides.

Georgetown County Council approved a contract that will see improved stormwater drainage systems installed in Garden City. Two streets are a particular priority: South Waccamaw Drive and Dolphin Street.

Jeff Kosto, the deputy fire chief at the Murrells Inlet-Garden City Fire Department, said the flooding on South Waccamaw Drive is so severe at times that it hinders his team’s ability to perform essential services in the aftermath of a natural disaster.

“On South Waccamaw, it significantly floods,” Kosto said. “Makes it a little harder to get down here with our apparatus, ambulances mostly, to get to a patient or a call that we may need to go to.”

The county specifically approved more money for the drainage project Tuesday night. After the permitting process, the county had to amend designs, meaning there is more paving to be done than originally anticipated.

While the need for more materials is part of why the county needs more funding, the county’s director of public services, Ray Funnye, said that’s not the only reason.

“The additional costs are necessitated by the permitting requirements,” Funnye said. “We have some additional costs from inflation and the cost of concrete and asphalt material.”

With such frequent and severe flooding, residents have become accustomed to using best practices in the event of a flood. Kosto said he sees that from those he serves, but now and again, someone tries to brave the flood waters while driving.

“On occasion, you get someone that tries to drive through it and gets a little bit overwhelmed once they get into it. They stop and we’ll have to go out and get them, or something like that,” Kosto said. “The problem is when you can’t see the road and you try to drive out through it, you don’t know if the road’s still there or if it’s washed out.”

Kosto added that if you can’t see the road, turn around. In addition to the road potentially being washed out, you may not know how deep the flood water is.

South Waccamaw Drive is a crucial roadway in Garden City, as it connects Horry and Georgetown counties in Garden City. The road runs through both counties.

Interestingly, it’s not Georgetown County’s responsibility to maintain South Waccamaw Drive; it’s a state-maintained road. Funnye said the county is just doing what it can to keep residents safe.

“South Waccamaw happens to be a state-maintained road,” Funnye said. “But the county of Georgetown felt the need to provide some assistance to improve the conditions along South Waccamaw Drive.”

The amended contract for the Garden City drainage improvements was under the consent agenda that was approved during Tuesday’s meeting.

South Strand prepares for possible coastal flooding

GARDEN CITY, S.C. (WMBF) - With strong winds, heavy rain and possible coastal flooding forecast for Sunday, emergency officials in Horry County say they’re ready.“We know that the trouble spots in the county such as down on the south end and the north end, certainly Garden City, areas of Cherry Grove, anywhere that is usually seeing coastal flooding even just from astronomical tides, should certainly expect to see water on some of those roadways,” said Thomas Bell, spokesperson for Horry County Emergency Management....

GARDEN CITY, S.C. (WMBF) - With strong winds, heavy rain and possible coastal flooding forecast for Sunday, emergency officials in Horry County say they’re ready.

“We know that the trouble spots in the county such as down on the south end and the north end, certainly Garden City, areas of Cherry Grove, anywhere that is usually seeing coastal flooding even just from astronomical tides, should certainly expect to see water on some of those roadways,” said Thomas Bell, spokesperson for Horry County Emergency Management.

Businesses on Atlantic Avenue in Garden City can attest to this.

“We’ll get a foot of water, three feet of water in the bar,” said John Thomas, manager at Garden City Beach Bar and Grill.

Thomas has worked at the bar for seven years and told WMBF News that it’s not just big storms that have an impact on Atlantic Avenue.

“You know, you’re below the water table here, so any time you get any type of precipitation, it has nowhere to go,” he said.

Thomas said preparing for flooding is now just second nature.

“You learn over time, and so all of our coolers are now off the ground, as high as we can get them,” said Thomas. “And then, if we know that high tide is coming, which we always do know, then we get everything else off the floor.”

Down the street, Dunes Realty has seen its share of flooding.

“There’s definitely some fatigue that comes into it, and luckily we’ve done this so many times that we’ve designed our office to be resilient,” said Ryan Swaim, general manager at Dunes Realty.

Swaim said the office will elevate its furniture, but he does not expect water to get inside the building as it has with more severe storms.

“If we do get water, it shouldn’t be much...and it’s enough to make a mess, and it’s enough to be a real pain in the rear, but probably not enough to cause too much damage,” he said.

Ultimately, county leaders want to make sure residents and those visiting pay attention.

“We just want people to be weather aware and cognizant that this is going to be a little bit more than just a rainstorm,” said Bell.

Bell also recommends securing any Christmas decorations that have the potential to fly away. A representative from Santee Cooper says its teams are also monitoring the weather and will be ready to respond if needed.

'It looks like a 20-foot stump:' Garden City residents concerned home construction will hurt live oak tree

GARDEN CITY, S.C. (WPDE) — Construction that is happening in Garden City has some residents concerned about how it will impact live oak trees.

Joe Troy, a Garden City resident, is worried that building that close to the tree will hurt it.

"It was large flowing branches, a beautiful old oak, which we thought were somewhat protected," Troy said.

He drives past these live oaks on his way home all the time and says the construction is destroying them.

"Right now it looks like a 20-foot stump," he added.

Many of the live oak’s branches have been cut and the side of the house is just inches away from the tree.

"How does that work? If the tree grows, it’s going to compromise the home," he said.

Concrete was put down near the tree to hold one of the pillars of the house in place. Troy is concerned about what it will do to its roots.

"If that pillar that was driven right next to the tree didn’t kill the root system, it affected it," Troy said.

He said he brought these concerns to the county.

"They told me that they dispatched one of their staff to investigate it," Troy said.

However, he said he had not heard anything about that investigation in three weeks.

He said Code Enforcement told him an arborist was contacted to see how the tree would be impacted, but he’s heard nothing.

An interview was declined after reaching out to the county.

However, county officials said in a statement, “Our county team is in communication with the community members who have inquired about the topic.”

According to Horry County’s zoning ordinance, without authorization from the Zoning Board of Appeals, it’s unlawful to remove a live oak.

But, specifically in the Garden City Overlay, where this tree is located, the Zoning Administrator can approve a live oak being removed if the structure can’t be adjusted to preserve it.

"All the concerned citizens are waiting, but the construction continues and the mutilation continues," Troy said.

More updates will be provided on what comes out of the community’s concerns.

Tax referendum on ballot to help Murrells Inlet Garden City Fire District funding

MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (WMBF) - Residents in Murrells Inlet and Garden City will vote on a referendum next week that would increase taxes to support more personnel for the fire district.

“When I call the fire department, I want them to come,” said Al Jordan, president of the Greater Burgess Community Association. “That’s the bottom line.”

The Greater Burgess Community Association is supporting the referendum. Jordan says that last year, Murrells Inlet Garden City Fire District was unable to get a unit to 300 calls due to not having enough staff members.

“That’s unacceptable, that’s almost once a day,” said Jordan.

The referendum would increase taxes over the next five years. Initially, an owner-occupied home would see a tax increase of $56.

According to Gene Connell, president of the fire district’s board of directors, this extra money would increase staffing by 30 percent.

“What we’d like to do would be able to have additional ambulance services, said Connell. “The call for ambulance services is daily here; we had 8,000 calls last year in the district.”

Connell said this is especially important because the district is home to several people over 59 years of age. And, there is a diverse set of needs.

“It’s a wide-ranging district,” he said. “We have high-rise condominiums in the district, we have Waccamaw hospitals in the district...we have to be able to service a very diverse group of people.”

However, Connell said the turnout for past referendum votes has not been high. Usually, only around 2,000 people vote in a district of more than 10 times that number.

“We have an opportunity to vote to have better fire protection and paramedic service, and the idea of not doing that strikes me as crazy,” said Jordan.

The referendum vote takes place on July 25.
