More Beach To Love
The Towns of Duck, Kitty Hawk, Nags Head and Dare County join together in a beach nourishment project slated for May 2017.
The project consists of pumping sand onto an eroding shoreline to widen the existing beach. Sources of sand may include a nearby sandbar, a dredged source such as an inlet or waterway, or an offshore borrow site along the ocean floor. The widened shoreline provides increased defense from coastal storms and beach erosion protecting property, communities and infrastructure located along the shoreline.
