Revitalizing and Re-nourishing our Beaches
Beach MapRecent storms have eroded Jupiter’s beaches, threatening park lands, buildings, and important dune and beach habitat. Large-scale beach re-nourishment helps to stabilize the shoreline against future storms, and protects recreational, natural and residential areas. This January, two important re-nourishment projects will get underway along Jupiter’s beaches, restoring approximately 166,000 cubic yards of sand.

The first project will place approximately 86,000 cubic yards along the beach at Carlin Park north to the Ocean Trails condominium community. Crews will be working around the clock to complete the project in about 3 months. Contractor work schedules will be adjusted to minimize disruption for nearby residents, and access will be restricted on certain portions of the beach as the work moves northward. The Army Corps of Engineers is funding and managing the project, with Palm Beach County as a sponsoring agency.

Also in January, a project to dredge the Jupiter Inlet and replace sand from the beach at the south side of the Inlet south to Ocean Trails will begin. This project involves approximately 80,000 cubic yards of sand, and is being commissioned and managed by the Army Corps and the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND). Both projects have strict requirements to be completed by or to accommodate the start of turtle nesting season.
