Should West Coast Beaches Be Widened
Owing to the recent storm many west coast beaches were adversely impacted and narrowed as a result. This has made an already bad situation worse by way of forcing beachfront property owners to put in place measures to prevent further property loss such as laying boulders on the beach and building sea walls. Some popular beaches are also finding it very difficult to accommodate all their patrons on the narrow strips of sand especially on days when cruise liners are in port. This blog is currently running a poll to determine what percentage of its visitors are or are not supportive of the artificial widening of west coast beaches.
