Jarvis Creek Improvements

Jarvis Creek Park is a high traffic area on Hilton Head Island that is filled with children, families and those who enjoy the outdoor bike trails and fishing docks. When Hilton Head Island was hit by Hurricane Matthew in 2016, Jarvis Creek was an area that flooded the most. The original design intended for water to flow from ponds into the creek and utilize the pump station to help with flooding if a hurricane occurred. Following the hurricane, the water flow was halted because the flow doors had been sealed shut over time due to sediment build up. This all resulted in Jarvis Creek flooding and caused surrounding businesses to go out of commission for months. 

The town engineer called Atlas Surveying, Inc. to help improve and expand the drainage capabilities of the pump station to improve drainage flow. Our surveys supplied the engineers with data to plan and develop drainage improvements of detention ponds starting on the North end of Highway 278 extending all the way to the South end where Jarvis Creek intersects the Cross-Island Pkwy. We are proud to have teamed up with the town of Hilton Head to improve our community and keep our residents and visitors safe during hurricane season.
