Heavy equipment moving sand on a beach

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ contractors pump sand dredged from the bottom of the Chesapeake Bay up to Norfolk, Virginia’s Ocean View Beach. The sand is part of a $34.5 million project to reduce storm damage risk to infrastructure along a 7.3 mile stretch of waterfront. When completed in 2017, the beach was 60 feet wide and sloped up to 5 feet above mean low water.
