2016 Navarre Beach Renourishment Construction Specifics
The Contractor will generally place sand from East to West along the beach; the Contractor will specifically place fill in the following sequence:
Segment 1 – starting at the landward end of Pipeline Corridor 1 (at Beach Colony) then moving from West to East to the eastern limits of Segment 1 and the eastern limits of fill;
Segment 2 - beginning at the landward end of Pipeline Corridor 1 then moving from East to West to the western limits of Segment 2;
Segment 3 – starting at the landward end of Pipeline Corridor 2 (near 7737 Gulf Blvd) then moving from West to East to the eastern limits of Segment 3; and
Segment 4 - beginning at the landward end of Pipeline Corridor 2 then moving from East to West to the western limits of Segment 4 and the western limits of fill.
The two dredges will work in an alternating sequence on the same pipeline. While one dredge is unloading fill at the shoreline, the other will be dredging material from the borrow area 4 miles away. They will then switch, providing a quick succession for unloading material onto the beach. As the material is pumped onto the beach, the Contractor will add “shore pipe” (40-foot lengths of pipe) to extend the pipe discharge point along the beach to fill each segment as described above.
