Corps hires firm to finish post-Katrina beach restoration

PASCAGOULA — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers hired Tropical World to begin the final phase of Hurricane Isaac repairs to the Pascagoula Beach.

The Sun Herald reports work began yesterday to further replenish sand and riprap, clean and restore the concrete mats, and correct filter fabric that is exposed.

Jaci Turner, the city’s planning, building and engineering director, says the project should take three to four weeks. The corps will survey the sand daily to verify the quantity of sand used.

Dune-fencing restoration and sand replenishment phases have been completed. After all work is done, the beach will be turned over to the city and county for maintenance.
