Town Beach Replenishment and Bay Creek Erosion
TOWN BEACH REPLENISHMENT AND BAY CREEK EROSION
March 23, 2015 — At top, Craig Richardson’s drone equipped with fisheye lens provides a dramatic shot of Cape Charles public beach’s new real estate, courtesy of the Army Corps of Engineers, who are dredging the harbor channel and pumping the spoil onto the beach.
Meanwhile (bottom left), erosion at Bay Creek’s private beach prepares to again attack the golf cart path, which previously fell to Hurricane Sandy.
At bottom right, Wayne Creed reports that the muddy material dredged from the harbor will be taken to the Upland Placement Site, just south of the railroad tracks that parallel Stone Road. Construction and rehabilitation of the site has already begun.
