UPDATE: SAND PUMPING BEGINS THIS WEEKEND IN AVALON

A beach fill project in Avalon will begin this weekend.  Avalon officials expect the dredge to arrive off the Avalon beaches on Friday afternoon. A total of 450,000 cubic yards of sand will be hydraulically pumped from a sand borrow area in Townsend’s Inlet and placed on the Avalon beachfront in advance of the summer tourism season. It will take at least 20 days to conduct the project; that timeline could be extended in the event of any severe weather or mechanical issues that arise. Once complete, the dredge will move to Stone Harbor for a beach fill in that community
