Sand pumping operations at Florida’s Fernandina Beach are now complete, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Jacksonville District said in its latest project update. 

Equipment demoblization will occur for the next several weeks, said USACE.

During the scheme, the contractor – Manson Construction – placed about 340,000 cubic yards at Fernandina Beach and 170,000 cubic yards at Fort Clinch State Park, with approx. 930,000 cubic yards of non-beach compatible sand between the approved nearshore disposal area and an offshore disposal site.

Sponsored by the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay and the City of Fernandina Beach, the project is critical to commercial cargo transiting the port and also to the Navy base, which shares the entrance channel.

Fernandina Beach, Nassau County, Amelia Island Tourist Development Council, and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection contributed $1.6 million to the project allowing sand placement in critical areas on the beach.
