Sand project to
begin on Kauai
KOLOA, Kauai (AP) — A popular south shore Kauai beach will undergo a small-scale sand replenishment project to address erosion.
The county’s Department of Parks and Recreation said the Poipu Beach project will begin Dec. 9 and is expected to be completed by the end of the week.
Nearly 500 cubic yards of fill sand from Kawailele Bird Sanctuary in Mana will be used. The state Department of Land and Natural Resources deems the fill sand compatible with Poipu Beach sand. The fill sand has been screened and washed to filter silt and fine grains.
Work areas will be closed to the public one section at a time. County lifeguard services will not be interrupted.
Work will halt for inclement weather or protected animals in the area.
