WILMINGTON, N.C. – The Wilmington District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will hold a media day on February 22, 2019 at 11 a.m. at the Carolina Beach Pier, Carolina Beach, N.C.

The Wilmington District awarded a periodic nourishment contract on Nov. 30, 2018 at a cost of approximately $17.4 million to Weeks Marine, Incorporated. This contract for coastal storm risk management covers portions of the shorelines within Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. Placement of sand on the northern end of Carolina Beach is scheduled to start on February 16, 2019.

Periodic placement of sand along the shoreline provides authorized storm risk reduction benefits to homes, businesses, and critical infrastructure as well as providing an outstanding recreational resource to the public until the next scheduled nourishment event, which normally occurs every three years.
