ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (AP) - Sandbags have been removed from what state regulators say is an illegal seawall on the Isle of Palms.

But the Post and Courier of Charleston reports (https://bit.ly/1q2DOjF) it’s unclear what becomes of a $760,000 fine levied against the owners of a condominium behind the wall.

Contractors have removed the bags from in front of the condominiums and a golf course nearby. Mark Plowden of the Department of Health an Environmental Control says they were removed voluntarily so the beach can be rebuilt with sand beginning next week. He says the seawall is also to be removed before that work begins.

The property owners have appealed a state fine for building the seawall. DHEC is expected to take up the appeal next month.
