The Sunshine Coast Council recently held a meeting to discuss the 2019 Maroochydore Beach Renourishment Project.

During the meeting the attendees talked about the Maroochydore Beach project, where every two years since late 2013 council contractors extract sand from the lower Maroochy River to replenish the shoreline of Maroochydore Beach, protecting it from natural erosion.

According to the Division 8 Councillor Jason O’Pray, these nourishment works – which begin today, June 18 – are essential to maintain the beach and uphold council’s vision to be Australia’s most sustainable region.

These works have ensured ongoing protection of the adjacent assets from storm erosion, and allow the shoreline to respond to natural erosion events,” said Jason O’Pray.

It is anticipated that sand extraction and delivery will continue for a number of weeks (weather dependent), bringing a total of 100,000 cubic meters of loose sand material through the pipeline that was constructed in 2013.
