AVALON BEACH FILL IS UNDERWAY

The dredge “Illinois” has arrived in Avalon and is beginning to pump sand. Avalon officials told Coastal Broadcasting that the beach fill has begun. Offshore conditions had kept the dredge from arriving for a week. Around 500,000 cubic yards of sand will be put onto Avalon’s beaches by the time the beach fill is done. The dredge will head to Stone Harbor once it is done in Avalon.
