Beach nourishment is finally underway for much of Carolina Beach & Kure Beach. This much-needed sand will begin coming to our local beaches after several months of delays.
The beaches are being rebuilt by th U.S. Army Corps of Engineers through their coastal storm damage reduction projects, also known as beach nourishment, which occurs every three years for the two Pleasure Island beach towns. This cycle, which cost $12.3 million dollars total (65 percent of which is paid using federal dollars, with the remaining 35 percent split between local governments) was originally scheduled to start in November.
What do you think about these changes?
