    my alternative is to stop dredging or at least use better sand. Sometimes no action is the best action. Artificial reefs or maybe just throw 100 dollar bills in the water and see if they form a bar. Didn't say i was an expert just stating the obvious. I suppose you're a fan of futility

    sorry to be ignorant but what do they do, or try to do when pumping sand? And how does it effect the break? I thought I heard at one point that Dewy beach was a decent spot but that the city dug out the sand right before the beach creating the shore break it has now? Is that it? I can't imagine why they do that as it does not seem good for anyone?

    Also will they be pumping Indian River Inlet? I love that spot and would not like it to be intentionally messed up?

    Again sorry for asking what be well known on this forum.

    The alternative is to stop wasting taxpayer dollars on this bull****. Unless, of course, you have a vested interest in this stunning annual waste of money ....?

    The North Side is constantly pumped with sand.

    Yah I'm sure these are the amazing results of humping, er, pumping sand into the ocean to try to stop Nature's relentless & ultimately victorious march of erosion.

    What political office is it, exactly, that you hold ....?

    That's not photoshop. That's a real pic. I go there all the time. They're building a new bridge and I belive, though not positive, that they pump out the water and stuff for the pillars from time to time and that's what comes out. Just sand and water but it's still a nasty looking sight. Especially when it's pumping and coming right at you in the water. More of a mind f&$k more than anything.

    Not sure if you are simply being a contrarianor if you really care but the irony of the replenishment efforts in DE (Rehoboth, anyway) is that they are making life miserable for the tourists. I assume the goal of replenishments is to make the beach bigger so there is more room. However just as pumping sand has ruined most of our local breaks it has also created a rock-filled trench right at the shoreline. This article is a year old but it explains the problems that this has caused for the lifegaurds:
