Beach Erosion Repair


This project involved the restoration of approximately 10,000 lineal feet of dune line at Patrick Air Force Base, FL. The existing dune was surveyed and new dune profiles were developed based on current beach configuration. Over 51,000 cubic yards of beach sand was harvested from a site at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station to the north, then trucked and spread within the project area to form the new dune. Approximately 81,000 plants of various species were then planted along the new dune line for stabilization.
