When all phases are concluded, Charleston will have the only 52-foot deep channel in the Southeast. Funding for this project comes from both the Federal Government and the State of South Carolina. Excavated material will be placed in upland placement areas and the Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site (ODMDS). The work also includes measures to ensure compliance with requirements of the Endangered Species Act and Marine Mammals Protection Act.

Work is estimated to start in the fourth quarter of 2020, with anticipated completion in the second quarter of 2021.
