Harborwalk Marina to Receive $323,000 Federal Grant

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R- South Carolina) announced today the Department of the Interior U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has awarded a $323,070 boating infrastructure grant to the Harborwalk Marina in Georgetown. The funds will be used to remove an existing pier, and install new docks and fixed piers that can accommodate up to thirteen boat slips. This upgrade will provide transient boaters with greater access to the city’s historic district. “South Carolina’s waterways are one of our state’s greatest resources,” said Graham. “Recreational boaters are attracted to the historic sites and beautiful scenery along our coastal waterways. We need to provide safe and easy access from water to land.”
