May 4, 2018 - Norfolk Dredging has completed the renourishment of Sunshine Beach and the pipe extension all the way to Sunset Beach. Sand ramps are being built over the pipe to aid with waterfront access. Once Johns Pass is fully dredged, the pipe will be removed from the north and central beach. At this time, the remaining sand for Sunset Beach will be barged in from Egmont Key. The entire project is projected to be completed by June 2nd.
Beach renourishment is vital to our community, both economically and environmentally. Maintaining a healthy coastline provides for increased property values, tourism, wildlife habitat, and storm protection.
