HAM 316 Kicks Off Annual Lincshore Scheme

The Environment Agency announced last Friday (May 6) that a major annual scheme to replenish Lincolnshire beaches is underway now at Boygrift.

Over the next 6 weeks, beaches at Sutton on Sea, Trusthorpe, Mablethorpe, Ingoldmells, Trunch Lane, Walla Bank, Chapel Six Marshes and Huttoft will be replenished.

This reduces the risk of waves reaching and overtopping the main sea defenses, protecting them from damage and erosion.

Kevin Abbott, Flood and Coastal Risk Advisor, said: “Replacing the sand helps extend the life of our sea defenses, which in turn reduce flood risk to more than 30,000 homes and businesses, 19,000 static caravans and 35,000 hectares of land.

The Lincshore scheme sees sand dredged from the seabed and pumped onto the beach, replacing levels lost to the sea during the winter.

This year, around 350,000 cubic meters of sand will be dredged from designated off-shore areas and replaced onto 20km of beach. The vessel used will be trailing suction hopper dredger HAM 316, which will carry about 10,000 tonnes of sand at a time.
