The Dania Beach Renourishment Project 2019 in Broward County, Florida, supervised by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers’ Jacksonville District, has been successfully completed.

Under the beachfill program, the contractor – Eastman Aggregate Enterprises, LLC of Lake Worth, Florida – placed approximately 11,000 cubic yards of quality sand on the beach.

During the project, Eastman Aggregate renourished 7.2 miles of critically eroded shoreline along the beaches of Dania Beach, Mizell-Johnson State Park, Hollywood and Hallandale in Broward County.

The goal of engineered shore projects is to reduce risk and promote resilience in coastal communities. Shore projects help to reduce the damages – economic, environmental, infrastructure, human health and safety – of tropical storms and hurricanes.

Coastal communities with engineered beaches have historically fared much better than other communities as proven by numerous studies.

Along with providing economic stability and opportunities, beach nourishment projects also have inherent benefits in restoring critical habitat for shorebird and marine turtle nesting.
