The intracoastal waterway of the United States east coast is a 3,000-mile in-land waterway that runs North from Boston Mass., down the entire eastern coastal rivers, wetlands, bays, & inlets all the way southward along the Atlantic Seaboard to the southern tip of Florida, then around the gulf of Mexico to Brownsville Texas. 

What you may not know is this was man-made and man-conceived (well partially). In 1808 the United States proposed the ICW (aka intercoastal waterway [incorrect]), to create natural coastal and inland which allows for a waterborne circumnavigation of the eastern continental United States, using minimal ocean travel. This would provide a better supply line for coastal trading and travel for the development of a growing new nation. 

While much of the ICW is natural formed over millennia from rivers, bays, sounds & inlets the United States also helped connect them to facilitate this endeavor of making a safer navigable trade route and thus the Intracoastal Waterway was born. 

When purchasing property on any coastal wetland, marsh, or water system in South Carolina you must be very prudent about understanding the very real risk of flooding. As this is an ever-present concern that comes with living in a flood plain but using knowledgable local real estate professionals can help you mitigate the risks. 

Homes with raised foundations built on either concrete columns or pilings are the norm and should always be your first option if you’re considering a home that is waterfront, creekfront, riverfront, or on the intercoastal (ICW). That will be your first line of defense and keep your flood insurance to a minimum. Unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do about the risk of a hurricane the heavy winds that come from it, but if your house is raised you are likely good to go if flooding occurs.
