NRCA OKs Construction of Two Breakwaters

The Natural Resources Conservation Authority (NRCA) has OK’d construction of two breakwaters to be built in the Long Bay area in Negril, Jamaica.

After carefully considering all comments from stakeholders in Negril and the wider Jamaica, the NRCA granted the National Works Agency (NWA) Beach Licences for the construction and maintenance the structures, reported today the loopjamaica.

Construction works on the breakwater structures that will protect Negril’s seven-mile white sand beach include dredging of the sea (capital dredging) and coastal reclamation.

The two breakwaters, which will be located approx 1.5 kilometers offshore, should reduce erosive wave action, protect the coastline and allow for beach accretion.
