didn't think the quality could get worse than the last time, but this shit resembles dirt more than sand. This f*cking sucks. This is gonna be the sand thats used to bury the reef too right? Really is heartbreaking to see this shit being dumped. I wonder if the sea turtles will still lay eggs in this shit. [url=https://ibb.co/XtNBbQ9][/url]

From the Canaveral Shoals? That's been the planned source according to Army Corps documents. Geotechnical Coarser grained but with less silt than "native" beach sand. Could result in a steeper beach. The trucks suggest hauling in from the Atlantic Coastal Ridge, which might have organic material but is otherwise an ancient beach ridge. But it does seem a dredge is at work.

Dredged from the Canaveral Shoal, dumped nearshore at "tracking station" /Spessard Holland, pumped onshore with a second dredge so kinda washed twice then trucked for placement. This is the "best" sand, or so I've been told.

Damn... that sucks. Looks like the silty shit they dredge from our inlet in St. A... at least our sand is finer than yours and was a closer match )once the muddy gnarl washed away

welcome to fish poop sand. Bleaching required, smell may vary. Guaranteed to wash away.

The north jetty at Inlet will be two feet long when all this sand gets there.

That actually worked in Cocoa Beach. I'm told the sand locks itself together because of it's similar shape.

As far as the color, what's wrong with Rocket Fuel Residual grey?

Yep, when they pumped the sand during the 1st major "dredge project" here in St. A, the stuff was awful.... smelled and the was like dirty marsh mud. Most recent (smaller project) was from a shoal off the inlet and it looked like normal sand... imagine that

This is what happens when you have money hungry globalist crooks running and destroying cocoa beach. They dont give two shits what you think. they just want to pack new yorker tax payers into cocoa beach condos and turn cocoa beach into Daytona 2 with beach patrols and cops dressed in military gear.

Um, Cocoa Beach has established height restrictions and the sand was pumped from the outside sandbar to shore. This conversation is about Satellite Beach and points south.

Though i do agree with the beach patrol, that guy is a dick. I saw him race up and berate a couple for having a dog on the wrong part of the beach.
