Best Restored Beach Award for FBCP

The American Shore and Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) announced yesterday that Folly Beach County Park (FBCP) is a winner of its 2015 Best Restored Beach Award.

ASBPA created the Best Restored Beach award as a way of highlighting the value of America’s restored beaches,” said Harry Simmons, mayor of Caswell Beach, N.C., and ASBPA president.As Americans flock to our coastline during the upcoming beach season, most don’t even realize they may be enjoying a restored beach.”

The renourishment project was funded entirely through a CCPRC Capital Projects bond. In addition to reopening this public beach access area that had served thousands since its opening in 1982, the restoration also provided a beach and dune area that will facilitate sea turtle nesting and protect shorebird habitats.

“The loss of the county park access was a loss to the whole community,” said Best Restored Beach Committee Chair Lee Weishar, Ph.D.This project gave them back their recreational beach and had an added benefit of adding sea turtle and pelican habitat.”

For more than 50 years, beach restoration has been the preferred method of shore protection in coastal communities on the east, west, Gulf and Great Lakes coasts.

Restoration is the process of placing beach-quality sand on dwindling beaches to reverse or offset the effects of erosion.
