There will soon be "More Beach To Love" on the Outer Banks. The towns of Duck, Kitty Hawk, and Kill Devil Hills will be undergoing beach nourishment in 2017. Beach nourishment is the process of pumping sand onto an eroding shoreline to widen the existing beach. Sources of sand may include a nearby sandbar, a dredged source such as an inlet or waterway, or an offshore borrow site along the ocean floor. The widened shoreline provides increased defense from coastal storms and beach erosion protecting property, communities and infrastructure located along the shoreline.
