“If dredging is not completed, rental properties along the channels could lose their appeal to vacationers causing property values to decline.”
 
North Myrtle Beach, SC: If you’re buying a channel-front property in the Cherry Grove section, beware that many channels are not navigable at low tide, and some not even at high tide.
 
Most of the building lots in Cherry Grove Beach, a neighborhood on the northern tip of North Myrtle Beach, were formed in the mid-1900s by C.D. Nixon of East Cherry Grove Realty Company by filling of marshland.
 
Ongoing litigation over who owns the canals has prevented dredging. Reportedly, in the last five years, sediment has increased from 4 inches to 15 inches. In some channels, water barely flows.
