Buxton Beach Nourishment Resumes After Brief Shut Down

After having to shut down pumping operations on Friday morning, July 29  due to rough sea conditions, the pumping of sand resumed this afternoon just after 4:00 p.m. Construction is moving to the south and has approached the north end of Buxton.

Rough sea conditions on Friday, August 4 may lead to another delay over the weekend, but Weeks Marine estimates that if the current forecast holds, sea conditions will allow them to work for approximately four days over the coming week.

At this point, approximately 22% of the project has been completed. Updates will be provided as additional information is available.
