For the past three months many have wondered about the lights and heavy machinery working on the beach around the clock. The confusion which came with the $16 million beach renourishment project is now over!
1.4 million cubic yards of sand were pumped to 7.5 miles of beach, in many locations extending the shoreline by 100 feet. This project was the third of the major renourishment projects in Panama City Beach in the past 12 years.
“Preserving Panama City Beach’s natural resources is a top priority for area officials,” adds Rowe. “This commitment can be seen in the beach restoration as well as the recent opening of our Conservation Park. We look forward to welcoming guests seeking authentic beach vacations and ecotourism experiences.”
Renourishment is key to fighting against the erosion caused by dune destruction and reduction. Please help Panama City Beach prolong the areas impacted by the project by respecting the dunes, sea grass,and sea oats!
