    Great idea let’s keeping pumping sand on the beaches in the middle of the summer! This is the greatest boondoggle since the light rail train in VB! The pipes are opened now and sand will be continue to be dumped at the expense of the tax payers and enjoyment of the visitors to OBX. Nothing like renting an oceanfront home only to be blinded by the lights from night work and sickened by the smell of diesel exhaust.

    The beach is badly depleted and it has to be done. The residents deserve solid beaches and the tourists do bring in money on which many of the locals depend. Environmentally speaking refurbishing the OBX beaches is only putting a bandage on a permanent wound, but it’s worth keeping up for as long as we can before just giving up on the local people and economy.

    They should find the largest grain sand, shells, and gravel not dust to do the beaches. Why spend big bucks to do a half arsed job? For the stuff to stay on the beach it should be heavier. Otherwise it just washes away.

    How about we talk about the real problem. When all that pretty light sand is pumped on the beach it’s great. But then we get a strong north wind and guess what all that sand does is wash right down the beach and ends up where? You guessed it the inlet so now we get to pay once more to pump it and move it again. So talk about that.
