NC - Beach project to improve North Topsail Beach underway

A beach renourishment project to improve North Topsail Beach is underway.

Beach crews have been bulldozing sand to improve the beach's berm. That's the section of the beach in front of the dunes.

Town officials remind residents and visitors that the beach's berm is different than its dunes, and therefore people should not expect to see a dune-like structure from the beach renourishment work.

They say the project is to restore the berm as the first line of defense during storms until the dunes are completely rebuilt following Hurricane Florence damage.
