USA: Manatee County Plans Major Beach Renourishment Project

Manatee County natural resources director Charlie Hunsicker is planning what he calls the “central beach” renourishment project for Anna Maria Island starting in 2014 or early 2015, reports

Funding is the major problem of the beach renourishment project.

But, the Anna Maria Island project is at the top of the state’s priority list of needed beach renourishment projects.

It is estimated that the state, county beach renourishment fund and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would fund the project.

The renourishment project is expected to begin sometime in 2014.
