Beach Dunes Protection
To eliminate the need for water barriers and sandbags, we need to establish/re-establish a sand berm and plant it with seagrass from First Street through Eight Street. Rebuilding the shoreline to a height of 3-4 feet should be sufficient. Street end boardwalk entrances should be used in both establishing the berms and ensuring stability. Sand transport will need to be continually monitored in the most westerly areas as those beach locations tend to have losses.This area is approximately 1,900 feet long.
