Hello from Topsail Beach.....
A $7.3 million project is finally underway for the town of Topsail Beach.
Over the next couple months, dredging companies will be pumping 900,000 cubic yards of sand to the beach. The extra sand will provide added protection against beach erosion and home damage in the event of a hurricane. "It flattens out the beach, stops the wave action and slows the erosion of the beach, so it basically helps protect from beach erosion in hurricanes and offers a higher level of protection for structures," said Topsail Town Manager Tim Holloman.
