Beach Renourishment Set to Get Underway

Dredging Equipment Is Poised to Go At the Sate Park

I’ve been hearing a lot of different things about the status of the beach renourishment program so I decided to stop by the the offices of Manson Construction this afternoon to get the facts straight from the contractor. I met with the project manager, Billy House, who told me they expect to start pumping sand sometime in the first week of March. The dredging equipment has been delivered to the State Park which is where the process will begin, and they plan to submerge the first length of pipe this Sunday.

In a meeting I had with Paula Pickett of the Tourist Development Council, she said that once Manson gets underway teams will work 24/7 until the job is finished, and will typically move 300 to 500 feet per day. The plan is to do frequent, even daily, updates to the Beach Advisory Committee’s website,, posting where the workers anticipate being on any given day so that owners and property managers can plan accordingly. At the speed with which they’ll be moving, it seems they won’t be by any one property for very long.
