Sand Replenishment Underway at Presque Isle

Posted: Updated:
Sand replenishment is now underway at Presque Isle.
 Crews this week began moving sand from the stockpile on north pier to beach 5.
 The first of 6 shipments of new sand is expected to arrive next week, with the nourishment effort continuing on and off for the next couple of months.
 Most of the sand will be used to fill in eroded areas at beaches 5,7, and 10.
 But the beach 10 work can't start until July because of restrictions to protect the piping plover, a shorebird that may nest in the spring.
