Lincolnshire Beach Management Works Set for May

Lincolnshire Beach Management (LBM) will begin the beach management works on Monday, May 6, placing new sand onto the Boygrift, Sutton on Sea, Mablethorpe, Trusthorpe, Wolla Bank and Chapel Six Marshes, Trunch Lane, Ingoldmells and Huttoft beaches.

The beach management works help manage coastal flood risk for around 20,000 residential homes, 1,700 businesses, 24,500 static caravans and 35,000 hectares of farmland as well as a bustling tourist industry.

As in previous years, contractors will be dredging sand from licensed offshore sites using a trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD).

The dredger will move closer to the shore twice a day – just before high tide – to pump sand onto the beach using a steel and rubber 630 meter long pipeline, reports Skagness Standard.

After the sand is pumped onto the beach, bulldozers and excavators will be used to push the sand into the right beach profile.

This work replaces sand lost due to erosion, reducing wave overtopping during storms and will protect the sea defenses from being damaged.
