  • The hopper dredge BE Lindholm is anchored off the coast while dozers move sand that was dredged from the ocean's floor. The sand is transferred through a piping system into a strainer before it is placed on the beach. Dozers then move the sand to expand and build up the beach front. Today the crew was working between the 2800 and 2900 block of Sandpiper Rd. The $13.35 million non-federal project included the dredging and placement of approximately 2 million cubic yards of sand along public beachfront from Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge to the Dam Neck Naval facility.
