Crews change anchor installation method in Beaufort mooring field

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

Crews working on the mooring field in Beaufort are having to change how they install their anchors.

They said soft rocks beneath deeper parts of the river are too soft to securely hold the anchors.

The remaining anchors will have pipes drilled about eight inches into the ground for support.

Sixteen anchors have already been installed and are in use.
