Abstract

Sand management carried out within the watershed is one approach to improving a sandy beach environment. We analyzed sediment and sand at an endangered horseshoe crab spawning ground and examined sediment collected at an upstream sand control dam and this sediment was deposited on the beach. We reviewed former beach nourishment efforts by examining ground elevation. We found that the watershed sand management methodology using sand from the dam to nourish the beach posed no particular problem in terms of sand characteristics. This operation was small-scale, but almost all basic sand management aspects were present.
