Default Perched Beach

Looking for recommendations for a contractor to deliver quality fine beach sand to Rattlesnake Is asap.

Been trying marine contractors for months with promises to deliver but no follow through.

Just need to top off what has been lost over the years.

Please PM me if you have a reliable referral.

Thanks!

I am pretty sure you need a permit from DES before you can do anything. It should not be hard to find beach sand locally.

Perched.
So the sand will not be entering the water.

Doesn't matter, this still requires a permit.

$400 fee?
And you can only replenish up to 10 cubic feet every six years.

The question is how many people actually get permits for this activity..... My guess is not many...

The big key is not to let the problem get to the point, where you need sufficient quantity, to have someone deliver it...

Now that gets a bit harder when your on a island... but even then I am sure the contractors don't always get the permit, or that state that the owner is responsible for having done that...

Over the years its inevitable. Other materials such as dirt, mulch, leaves, pine needles, etc all make their way into the beach and stiffen it up. We have had to do replenishments in the past because of this.

Sand is full of phosphorous which leads to algae, milfoli, cyanobacteria (right in your own "backyard"). As noted in the lawns thread, it really should be minimized

I have been told you not only need a permit but can only construct a perched beach when the lake level is drawn down in the fall.
