St. Lucie County to Begin Fort Pierce Inlet Beach Renourishment

Post Date:02/05/2018 10:04 AM

In the coming weeks, crews will begin staging equipment immediately south of the Fort Pierce Inlet to begin pumping roughly 385,000 cubic yards of sand on the beach to combat the severe erosion that has occurred there.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), in partnership with the St. Lucie County Erosion District, has contracted with Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company to construct this renourishment project, which is slated to start pumping sand in early March, wrapping up before the end of April. The project will collect beach-quality sand from offshore and pump it via a pipeline onto the beach south of the inlet.

A smaller beach fill project at Fort Pierce Beach was conducted last April when the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) provided roughly 74,000 cubic yards of material that was dredged from the Intracoastal Waterway channel.
