COASTAL RESTORATION AND LAND RECLAMATION DREDGING
The protection and restoration of beaches and land reclamation is essential to protecting our natural resources. Beach reclamation can be generally understood as the process of restoring a beach from erosion. Sand is added to the areas of the beach that have experienced severe erosion to “reclaim” the shoreline of the beach. This reclamation process is not limited to just ocean beaches, however, as it can be carried out on any beach or shoreline that experiences extreme erosion. Land reclamation and capital dredging is the process of creating new land from the sea. The simplest method of land reclamation and capital dredging involves simply filling the area with large amounts of heavy rock and/or cement, then filling with clay and soil with the use of dredgers until the desired height is reached.
