      This year, Sandbridge will save nearly $ million in preventable damage from storm protection protection measures, according to calculations based on historical storm damage to existing infrastructure, as well as analysis of certain storms with, The $ million non-federal project included the dredging and placement of approximately 2 million cubic yards of Outer Continental Shelf (OCS. Carteret County’s huge beach renourishment project is moving along smoothly. The project began three weeks ago and is right on time, according to Shore Protection Manager Greg Rudolph, who says.

    Beach nourishment describes a process by which sediment, usually sand, lost through longshore drift or erosion is replaced from other sources.

Beach nourishment is typically part of a larger coastal .   Hurricane Florence passed by Bogue Banks in September and just before the project was bid. This same reach of beach lost ~, cubic yards of sand in the wake of Florence and accordingly we re-focused our efforts, made a few slight changes, and re-termed our project to the Post-Florence Renourishment Project (Phase I).
