Buxton Beach Nourishment Update - August 15, 2017


Weeks Marine has worked intermittently over the last few days, as marine conditions allowed. With Hurricane Gert forecasted to pass offshore, high waves are expected today and tomorrow.   Weeks Marine is closely monitoring the weather. Once work resumes, work will continue in the section of beach just north of Buxton for approximately twenty four hours of pumping and then work will proceed south from the subline towards the village of Buxton.

The second subline for a hopper dredge was laid on Friday, August 11 approximately 5,000 feet north of the original subline. The arrival of a hopper dredge has been delayed and the anticipated arrival date will be announced once the updated mobilization plan has been determined.

The next update will be issued when pumping of sand resumes.

The next update will be issued as soon as work on the project resumes, or sooner if updated information becomes available.
