USA: New Sand to Arrive at Ocean Ridge Beaches

Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-22) presented Palm Beach County with a $12.2 million reimbursement for the Army Corps of Engineers projects, including Ocean Ridge beach renourishment.

Beaches mean much more to our community than just a place to get a suntan. Beaches protect our property, they are home to natural habitats, and they attract visitors from all over the world. This means millions of dollars in property taxes and tourist dollars to our region,” said Frankel.

Hurricane Sandy devastated South Florida’s coastal communities, which remain vulnerable to future deadly storms. However, beach erosion has already hurt local businesses and threatened natural habitats. Last year, Rep. Frankel worked with the House Appropriations Committee to obtain funds for shore protection.

The economic and environmental value of our beautiful shoreline is recognized by President Obama, the Army Corps of Engineers and my colleagues in Congress with this check which represents the $12 million the Federal government is reimbursing Palm Beach County for beach restoration in Ocean Ridge, Boca Raton, Delray and Carlin Beach in Jupiter,” added Frankel.
