At the meeting, DCR will share information about Phase II of the Winthrop Beach Restoration Project, which will include the use of sand from the mound behind the breakwaters known as the Five Sisters to renourish the southern end of the beach.
Phase I of the project, nearing completion, involved the repair of two structures at the southern part of the beach that will play an important role in stabilizing the beach nourishment that will be accomplished in Phase II.
The entire $17 million, four-phase Winthrop Beach Restoration project is designed to better fortify Winthrop Beach against the full force of northeast storm and natural beach erosion. DCR will be holding additional public meetings on future phases of the project.
