It’s been a very rough 6 months or so here on Amelia Island – a tropical storm passed nearby and 2 early nor’easters have wrecked havoc on our normally pristine beaches. Our tour today will show us some of the preparations underway for a large-scale beach replenishment project – moving sand from point A to B, C, D, and F.
Dredging and then the pumping of sand on to the beach is expected to start around March 1st. Lots of heavy machinery, pipes, and whatnot over the next 2-3 months. When they’re done our beach will be ready for whatever nature has in store this hurricane season.
