The annual Tallebudgera and Currumbin Creek dredging campaigns will again occur during the winter and spring months, informs the City of Gold Coast.

As they reported, the city allocates more than $1 million for these dredging works which are conducted for the purpose of sand nourishment at adjacent beaches.

Sand nourishment is an integral part of the city’s ongoing coastal protection efforts to maintain and replenish the beaches.

Dredging of Tallebudgera Creek will begin in late July and will be completed by mid-September prior to the school holidays. Each day of dredging, some 1000 cubic meters of sand is pumped from the creek around the Burleigh Headland and on to southern Burleigh Beach where natural processes help transport it north, the city said in the release.

The officials added that following the completion of the Tallebudgera Creek campaign, the dredge will move onto Currumbin Creek. Approximately 30,000 cubic meters of sand will be removed from an area within the creek mouth which will be used to nourish southern Palm Beach.

The Currumbin Creek works are set to begin in mid-October and finish in early December 2019.
