The hydraulic dredge CHARLESTON performed this beach replenishment job on the west coast of Florida in Pinellas County during one of the busiest hurricane seasons in recent memory. Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne all passed through during the course of the job requiring a great deal of coordination with the Corps of Engineers and the local sponsors to rebuild many portions of the beach after the storms passed through. Norfolk Dredging completed this job without any injuries or damaged equipment. Sand was pumped over 33,000 feet before construction of this beach was complete.
