- Unfortunately for the taxpayers, the wrong method of beach re-nourishment has been used for years. There are ways to protect
turtle nesting and the inevitable erosion of sand. Overlooking the method used successfully on Casey Key in the past where the turtles
came back to nest after the project was completed, has cost tax-payers huge sums. It doesn't have to be that way. The soil cement step revetment has been used on Casey Key in 3 locations with great success. The sand has accreted in these areas. The Florida Engineering Society presented a technical achievement award to the company that designed and constructed the step revetments. Two of the project sites were funded by the individual property owners of the shoreline.
- the breakwater approach is the last thing that anyone should do because it nullifies the reason for buying property on the beach. if the town and the county hadn't let beer can island rot away, we wouldn't be in this mess.
