Bathtub Reef Beach Renourishment Scheme Kicks Off

Construction began last week on a beach renourishment project that will create a new and improved Bathtub Reef Beach, according to the Martin County’s latest announcement.

The project is expected to be completed in May, prior to the start of the new sea turtle nesting season.

The northern half of Sailfish Point Beach will also be included in this beach renourishment project, the County stated.

Ferreira Construction has moved the Lori Hill Dredge to the east side of the area in the St. Lucie Inlet known as Borrow Area C.

Through mid-March, dredging works will take place in Borrow Area C within the St. Lucie Inlet flood shoals.

The pipeline corridor will cross the inlet and the pipeline will be submerged as it crosses the navigation channel and re-emerges onto the beach at the North Jetty moving north.

The booster pump will be floating just west of the shoal in the impoundment basin in the St. Lucie Inlet.
