Beach Nourishment is one of the continual procedures that goes on our beaches to help keep the shore healthy and beautiful.
Beach nourishment (and renourishment) is what puts the beach back. The process involves dredging sand from nearby shoals and channels, and spitting it up onto beaches in need.
After Tropical Storm Debby hit this year, many of the beaches have been in need of the nourishment process.
Jim "Mack" McAvaddy, a local photographer, was willing to share some of the photos he took of the 24-hour beach nourishment process going on around the Redington and Indian Shores beach area.
