Sand Berm????

I just received an email from the condo owner we rent from next week that said they Work will begin immediately

to construct a sand berm on approximately 19.2 miles of Walton County

Beaches, (not including beaches maintained by the state). The berms,

which will be approximately three feet high and 20-30 feet back from the

mean high tide water line, are designed to provide a protective barrier

between the shoreline and Walton County’s famous white-sand beaches. Two

sets of heavy equipment will begin at the west end of the county,

pushing sand seaward to create a berm that protects the beach while

continuing to provide easy access to the shoreline. “

They did the berm thing down here on Miramar - from the county line to Whales Tail last week and the waves from Alex have pretty much flattened it - do not know if they will try again or not.

More sand berms have been put on hold for now. They did not seem to work.
