The towns of Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills are getting More Beach To Love in 2017!
What is Beach Nourishment?
Beach nourishment is the process of pumping sand on to an eroding shoreline to widen the existing beach. Sources for sand may include a nearby sandbar, a dredged source such as an inlet or waterway, or an offshore borrow site along the ocean floor. The widened shoreline provides increased defense from coastal storms and beach erosion protecting property, communities and infrastructure located along the shoreline.
