While nearly all beaches are naturally prone to gradual erosion, adverse weather conditions and severe storms, such as hurricanes, can cause significant and sudden changes in the shoreline. 

Beach nourishment provides protection designed to retain and rebuild natural systems while reducing or preventing the consequences of beach erosion.

Ongoing maintenance, provided through periodic nourishment, is required to protect beachfront’s accessibility, natural beauty, and ecological vitality, as well as community’s economic viability.
