Beach Nourishment Status Councilor William "Bill" Smith
As some of you may have noticed by the appearance of bulldozers, piping, freighter, etc, the beach renourishment is very active in Indian Rocks Beach. As of July 23, the beach renourishment work area is from 15th Avenue in Indian Rocks Beach northward toward Belleair Shore. The Army Corps of Engineers has relocated the pipe coming on shore to 15th Avenue. When they finish up to Belleair Shore, they will pivot and start working south from 15th Avenue. They expect to reach 7th Avenue in Indian Rocks Beach by about August 20.
The renourishment should reach Indian Shores early in September barring any weather delays.
