Beaufort awarded $800,000 grant for Bayard St. drainage improvements

BEAUFORT, S.C. (Jan. 18, 2023)  –  The City of Beaufort has been approved for an $800,000 STA grant to address drainage and flooding issues along Bayard Street in The Point neighborhood.

The grant, from the Environmental Protection Agency, will allow the City to improve the stormwater infrastructure along Bayard. Among the improvements will be new stormwater pipes installed in the public right-of-way, said Project Manager Neal Pugliese. Current drainage will be redirected, he added.

The City will match this grant with $200,000 from its stormwater infrastructure allotment in its American Rescue Plan funds.

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham was instrumental in helping the City win approval for the grant, Pugliese said. The City is awaiting EPA guidance on the grant, he said. Once that is received, the City will begin the design and permitting process. Permits will need to be acquired from state and federal agencies.

The work on Bayard Street is part of an ongoing plan to address flooding issues in The Point. The historic neighborhood has antiquated stormwater pipes and poor drainage flow, which the City is committed to addressing.
