DCI Getting Ready for Visakhapatnam Beach Nourishment

The Visakhapatnam Port Trust (VPT) has started the pipeline laying operations for the Visakhapatnam beach nourishment scheme, The Hindu reports. 

The coastal protection project, undertaken by Dredging Corporation of India and set to last one month, will include placement of a significant amount of new sand onto the eroded beaches in Visakhapatnam.

On the recommendation of Deltares, a Netherlands-based independent institute specializing in research in water and sub-surface, VPT has been undertaking beach nourishment by collecting and dumping sand by laying a pipeline.

Deltares experts suggested that, instead of rainbow method of beach nourishment, collecting sea sand and dumping it at eroded beaches was most effective, informs The Hindu.

Since the inauguration of outer harbor in 1979, VPT has been carrying out beach nourishment project. Experts have opined that fast changing beach morphology due to concrete jungle culture has led to severe beach erosion all along Visakhapatnam and Bheemunipatnam coastline.
