Fleecing of America: Beach Fill

March 18 2010 | Beach fill, Jim's Blog,

Beach Fill: Sand artificially placed on the beach, usually by pumping sea bottom sediments onshore, to replace that being lost alongshore or offshore. Beach fill projects are usually large scale, spanning many miles of shoreline to rebuild eroded beaches. Also sometimes called beach nourishment, although the beach is not necessarily being nourished in an ecological sense.
